For the Love of Ida Lupino :: Terrifying Excitment! Surpasses Suspense! (October, 1953)




Second Run Ads :: February, 1954



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.
This post was one of my meager contributions to The Ida Lupino Blogathon (2011) hosted by The Miss Ida Lupino fan page, a well-worth-your-while shrine to one of my favorite actresses that is sadly no longer with us. Still, my Ida love knows no bounds, and I hope you will enjoy this humble retrospective. Thanks!
