I had the pleasure to be a guest on the „A Damn Fine Cup of Culture“ Podcast Episode #58 on Ida Lupino. Many thanks to the generous hosts Julie and Alan.
Ida Lupino, the English-American actress, singer, writer, producer, and, yes, director, whose films such as Outrage, The Bigamist and The Hitch-Hiker are fascinating, intriguing, and unusually frank (not only for the time!), dealing with topics such as rape and its social fallout or toxic masculinity long before such topics were common in the movies, and in ways that are more intriguing and nuanced than many more modern films.
