Happy Birthday, Ida Lupino

Ida Lupino Looking Through Movie Camera

Happy Birthday to an actress/director who doesn’t get nearly as much recognition as she should – Ida Lupino, a very important name in female directors. I’m still waiting on a good biography of Lupino… All the ones I’ve heard about seem to have problems or limitations. In honor of Lupino’s birthday, I think I’ll watch her 1953 film noir The Hitch-Hiker.
