Oh to be in New York now that November’s here – or now that the Film Forum are celebrating the centenary of London born IDA LUPINO (1918-1995) with a 25 film season from November 9th to the 22nd, 2018.
From blonde ingenue of the 30s to tough Noir dame of the 40s and 50s, to her being the only woman director in Hollywood for decades, Ida’s career is well documented in this wonderful tribute.
I hope the Forum has full houses and that there’s a loud round of applause when Ida’s name first appears on screen.
The series includes new restorations and archival prints.
If anyone reading this is attending,I’d love to hear from you.
And as if that wasn’t enough, Film Forum in the last week of November is screening 12 Rita Hayworth films.
(The Film Forum http://www.filmforum.org is a non-profit cinema since 1970.}
