Don't Do It Rita!!!

Every time I've ever read about this historic cut and color job that Orson Welles cooked up for Rita Hayworth before beginning "Lady From Shanghai", invariably it is mentioned that makeover was done without the knowledge of Columbia Pictures President Harry Cohn and he was furious.

Now I've spent the last few years researching and getting to know ol' Harry and I can say, with reasonable certainty, that no event with this kind of press coverage happened on Harry's lot without him knowing about it.
