Today’s Film Noir features that beauty queen of the silver screen, the lovely Rita Hayworth. The quote comes from the 1947 film “The Lady from Shanghai” which was written, directed and starred Orson (I was the Shadow) Welles and Ms. Hayworth. The movie was based on the novel “If I Die Before I Wake” by Sherwood King.
Granted Rita is sporting a blonde hair-do in the film, but let’s face facts folks. Rita is and always will be the quintessential “Brunette Bombshell“. I think Red put it best in “the Shawshank Redemption“: “This is the part I really like, when she does that sh– with her hair.”
Well, that is it for this week, but I have a feeling that the Daily Sketch Goes Noir is not quite finished yet. I still have a few more running through my veins.
Until next week…
