Ida Lupino: The Director

Celebrate the centenary of Hollywood trailblazer Ida Lupino (1918-1995) with newly-restored versions of three of her films as director: Not Wanted (1949), The Hitch-Hiker (1953) and The Bigamist (1953).

“People are tired of having the wool pulled over their eyes. They pay out good money for their theatre tickets and they want something in return. They want realism. And you can’t be realistic with the same glamorous muggs on the screen all the time.”
– Ida Lupino

“[The Hitch-Hiker is] a brutal story handled by Ms. Lupino, one of Hollywood’s very few female directors, with the same steely determination and emotional sensitivity found in her strongest performances.”
– J. Hoberman, The New York Times
