Mother Of Us All, Ida Lupino | Episode 43


Ida Lupino was a socially aware filmmaker and actress at a time when women were encouraged to stay home and leave the moviemaking to the men. In her time, she was the only female member of the Director’s Guild of America, and she practically invented product integration to fund her socially radically films when the studios found these women-centric narratives too distasteful to fund. In short, she was the bad bitch of 1940’s and 50’s filmmaking (making sure everyone on her sets called her Mother), and we worship her.
