Ida Lupino United States, 1953

Mtume Gant's rating of the film The Bigamist

What’s clear about Lupino was that not only was she attempting to break the gender barrier in cinema from a who gets to do what, she also was interested in subverting the melodramatic form. In the hands of other Directors this film would end much differently, not as complicated with the central character not redeemed and everything seemingly unsolvable, it is what it is.
