Ida Lupino United States, 1953

Loz Loory's rating of the film The Bigamist

Great actors but a terrible script. We see O'Brien is a bigamist within 10 minutes of the opening, so any suspense that might have existed in the film is gone. It's a credit to the acting prowess of Lupino and Fontaine that the female characters are interesting enough to keep watching. O'Brien walks around like he's in a deep freeze. Lots of 3-strand pearl necklaces to symbolize the love triangle.
