Strapped for cash, Orson Welles made a spur-of-the-moment deal with Columbia Pictures honcho Harry Cohn to direct and star – alongside Welles’ wife at the time, Rita Hayworth – in an adaptation of a pulp novel.

The hall-of-mirrors climax of this film is rightly celebrated as one of the greatest moments in all of Hollywood cinema.
