Honoring Female Directors – The Bigamist (1953)

March 5, 2016 - 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM


Harry and Eve Graham are trying to adopt a baby… and that’s where the trouble starts. We are screening this film, directed by Ida Lupino, as we honor Women Directors during the month of March. It stars Joan Fontaine, Ida Lupino and Edmund Gwenn and is included in the book 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die. Chris Fujiwara calls it a “haunting film” which is “one of several out-of-nowhere masterpieces” to be directed by Lupino. He particularly praises the final courtroom scene, which he considers to be “shattering”, with a “combination of ambiguity and intensity that recalls both Carl Dreyer and Nicholas Ray”.
