Ida Lupino United States, 1953

Renton47's rating of the film The Bigamist

It seems telling that the broad moments drawing laughter in my screening were all linked to the movie explicating bigamy as bad. Though reading as a PSA there is equal sentiment that social structures are what’s keeping Harry in shame. Both romances are compelling thanks to the performers, and the bizarre structure means we are consistently surprised. The compromise it suggests is still rich today.
