"ME, MOTHER DIRECTRESS": THE MARVELOUS IDA LUPINO is given a rather nice write-up by Wheeler Winston Dixon over at the film site Senses of Cinema. While Lupino is well-known as one of the leading ladies of the golden age of Hollywood, her possibly greater career as a film director (helming such great films as "THE HITCH-HIKER" and "OUTRAGE") is sadly underrepresented on DVD. Dixon makes the obvious and quite right proclimation that no one deserves the DVD box set treatment than Ida Lupino; I know I would be first in line to buy a box set of Ida Lupino's directorial work! So if you're at all interested in reading a nice career retrospective on Ida Lupino (and if you AIN'T, what're you doing reading this blog?!?) just click here. The article is gives a really god overview of this actress-turned-director.
