Honor Women’s History Month by watching a noir masterpiece by one of the few female directors working in the Hollywood studio system during the 1950s. In Ida Lupino’s The Hitch-Hiker, two friends pick up a stranded motorist who turns out to be a psychotic escaped convict.
In Ida Lupino’s directorial debut, a young and naive mother’s life spirals out of control after her musician beau ditches her for an out-of-town gig. The New Yorker called the film “a startling blend of compassion and invention.”
