Still, my Ida love knows no bounds, and I hope you will enjoy this humble retrospective. Thanks!

Here, Ida meets her match both onscreen and off. On with villainous Stephen McNally, and off with Howard Duff. I have no idea how their marriage lasted over 30 years but lasted it did.

The Hitch-Hiker is, hands down, my favorite flick that Lupino directed.  And not only did she direct it, but she co-wrote the screenplay with Collier Young and Robert Joseph. A true white-knuckler, folks. Check it out as soon as you can.
