Catch two of pioneering director Ida Lupino's films
The Heritage House Arts and Civic Center’s monthly free film screening features a special “Women’s History Month” presentation highlighting two of the works of pioneering director Ida Lupino.
Considered by many, including Lupino herself, to be her best film, 1953’s “The Hitch-Hiker” is about two Americans, played by Edmond O’Brien and Frank Lovejoy, who are vacationing in Mexico when their lives are taken over by a psychopathic serial killer, played by Emmett Myers.
Also from 1953, “The Bigamist” showcases Lupino both in front and behind the camera in a film about a traveling salesman, emotionally distanced from his wife, who meets and marries a second woman while traveling. However, trouble ensues when his first wife wants to adopt a child and the adoption agency begins to investigate his private life.
