Errol Flynn's Wikipedia - Errol Flynn magnificent yacht, the Schooner Zaca Wikipedia - Zaca Wikipedia Francais - Zaca Link - Zaca Link - Link - Flynn tribute page Link - Errol Flynn Blog is used as extensively in filming and Flynn was aboard to host parties every night.

 

Controversially, Orson Welles had Rita Hayworth's famous long red locks of hair cut short and died blond. Rita Hayworth's hair was famous in its own right thanks to the scene of her entrance in the film Gilda where the frame is held empty and as Gilda's name is called, she flicks up into the frame, having been bending down beneath it attending to her dressing. As she flicks up into the frame, she tosses her her hair back over her head and faces the camera. It is one of the most erotic scenes in all Cinema and one of the great entrances for a female in all film. Welles took a big risk in cutting Rita Hayworth's hair for Lady from Shanghai. Rita Hayworth looks equally beautiful with short blond, coiffed hair, as you can see from some of the frames here.

The movie was cut by a full hour from Welles's original cut which is a shame. Legend had it that Errol Flynn made an appearance in the background of the motion picture and I surmised that Flynn's appearance might have disappeared along with that hour of film.

However, carefully reviewing each scene involving a bar or cantina revealed Flynn in the background of a scene where Rita Hayworth's character Elsa storms out of the bar where they are gathered for the evening (00:35:31). The appearance was so fleeting it would have been very difficult to see on the silver screen.

Flynn seems to be unable to resist looking at the camera as he disappears out of frame. A flaw exhibited by others such as the wife of Harry Salzman when she appears as a passenger on the Orient Express as it pulls out of Sirkeci Station, in From Russia with Love (1963).

Another peculiarity is Orson Welles use of his middle finger on the trigger of the gun. There is an old method of pistol use within the family of methods known as »point shooting« which involves use of the middle finger on the trigger and the index finger on the frame of the pistol. The theory was that human beings had an innate ability to point with their index finger, and if the index finger was aligned with the frame of the pistol, then the pistol could be aligned by the finger alone, without have to raise the pistol to eye level. The theory is false because human beings have a vague ability to point at things with any part of their body, or with objects held in the hand, regardless of where the index finger is pointing.

However it would be very interesting to know whether Welles had heard of this theory, had practiced this method or whether there was some other reason for his use of the middle finger in this scene. He does have very large hands and the pistol has a small grip, which may be one reason.
