Ida Lupino: Hollywood Trailblazer

In 1950, Ida Lupino held the distinction of being the only female member of the Directors Guild of America. Best known as the tough-talking “dame” in film noirs like High Sierra and Road House, she went on to direct noirs of her own (The Hitch-Hiker, The Bigamist). She also dared tackle subjects that were taboo at the time, such as the plight of unwed mothers (Not Wanted). Lupino remains one of the most prolific directors of all time. In this class, we will view and discuss Lupino’s notable screen performances as well as her directing achievements in film and television. Come and explore what makes this talented woman a Hollywood trailblazer.
