Michael O'Hara joins up as a crew member of Arthur Bannister's yacht, sailing to San Francisco. Bannister has a wife, Rosalie, who seems to like Michael much better than she likes her husband. En route, the yacht picks up Grisby, Bannister's law partner. Michael decides to assist Grisby's with a fake death scheme so he can get $5000 and run off with Rosalie. But things never go according to plan.

"25.2. 2020 Michael O'Hara, who is the main character of "The Lady from Shaghai", is an incredibly naive and unlucky man, but this is exactly what makes the character so humane and relatable. He becomes a victim of an complicated scheme just because of his own stupidity. Soon after some confusing moments later he is chased by both criminals and cops. The main character is living in an unfair society that favors morally corrupt individuals and discriminates against stupid but innocent victims, "

"The Lady from Shanghai plays as a rough draft for Orson Welles’s Touch of Evil, as it similarly operates as the audio-visual equivalent of a draftsman’s sketchbook, with the nearly incoherent plot serving as a springboard for a variety of self-contained vignettes, ostentatiously symbolic shots, motifs, and probable ideas for future projects. There’s the long commanding scene where Michael (Welles) and Arthur (Everett Sloane) discuss the benefits and perils of money that ends, in true Welle"
