    Lupino was born in Herne Hill, Lon­don, to ac­tress Con­nie O'Shea (also known as Con­nie Emer­ald) and noted music hall co­me­dian Stan­ley Lupino, a mem­ber of the the­atri­cal Lupino fam­ily, which in­cluded Lupino Lane, a pop­u­lar song-and-dance man. Her fa­ther, a top name in mu­si­cal com­edy in the UK and a mem­ber of a cen­turies-old the­atri­cal dy­nasty dat­ing back to Re­nais­sance Italy, en­cour­aged her to per­form at an early age. He built a back­yard the­ater for Lupino and her sis­ter Rita (1920-2016), who also be­came an ac­tress and dancer. Lupino wrote her first play at age seven and toured with a trav­el­ing the­ater com­pany as a child. By the age of ten, Lupino had mem­o­rized the lead­ing fe­male roles in each of Shake­speare's plays. After her in­tense child­hood train­ing for stage plays, Ida's uncle Lupino Laneas­sisted her in mov­ing to­wards film act­ing by get­ting her work as a back­ground actor at British In­ter­na­tional Studios. She wanted to be a w...


    Lupino worked as both a stage and screen ac­tress. She first took to the stage in 1934 as the lead in The Pur­suit of Happiness at the Para­mount Stu­dio Theatre. Lupino made her first film ap­pear­ance in The Love Race (1931) and the fol­low­ing year, aged 14, she worked under di­rec­tor Allan Dwan in Her First Af­faire, in a role for which her mother had pre­vi­ously tested. She played lead­ing roles in five British films in 1933 at Warner Bros.' Ted­ding­ton stu­dios and for Julius Hagen a...

    Director, producer and writer

    While on sus­pen­sion, Lupino had ample time to ob­serve film­ing and edit­ing processes, and she be­came in­ter­ested in directing.She de­scribed how bored she was on set while "some­one else seemed to be doing all the in­ter­est­ing work." She and her hus­band Col­lier Young formed an in­de­pen­dent com­pany, The Fil­mak­ers [sic], to pro­duce, di­rect, and write low-bud­get, is­sue-ori­ented films. Her first di­rect­ing job came un­ex­pect­edly in 1949 when di­rec­tor Elmer Clifton suf­fer...


    Lupino con­tin­ued act­ing until the 1970s. Her di­rect­ing ef­forts dur­ing these years were al­most ex­clu­sively for tele­vi­sion pro­duc­tions such as Al­fred Hitch­cock Pre­sents, Thriller, The Twi­light Zone, Have Gun – Will Travel, Honey West, The Donna Reed Show, Gilli­gan's Is­land, 77 Sun­set Strip, The Ri­fle­man, The Vir­gin­ian, Sam Bene­dict, The Un­touch­ables, Hong Kong, The Fugi­tive, and Be­witched. Lupino ap­peared in 19 episodes of Four Star Play­house from 1952 to 1956. F...

    Lupino's Fil­mak­ers movies deal with un­con­ven­tional and con­tro­ver­sial sub­ject mat­ter that stu­dio pro­duc­ers would not touch, in­clud­ing out-of-wed­lock preg­nancy, bigamy, and rape. She de­scribed her in­de­pen­dent work as "films that had so­cial sig­nif­i­cance and yet were en­ter­tain­ment ... based on true sto­ries, things the pub­lic could un­der­stand be­cause they had hap­pened or been of news value." She fo­cused on women's is­sues for many of her films and she liked strong char­ac­ters, "[Not] women who have mas­cu­line qual­i­ties about them, but [a role] that has in­testi­nal for­ti­tude, some guts to it." In the film The Bigamist, the two women char­ac­ters rep­re­sent the ca­reer woman and the home­maker. The title char­ac­ter is mar­ried to a woman (Joan Fontaine) who, un­able to have chil­dren, has de­voted her en­ergy to her ca­reer. While on one of many busi­ness trips, he meets a wait­ress (Lupino) with whom he has a child, and then mar­ries her. Mar­sh...


    Ida Lupino was di­ag­nosed with polio in 1934. The New York Times re­ported that the out­break of polio within the Hol­ly­wood com­mu­nity was due to con­t­a­m­i­nated swim­ming pools. The dis­ease se­verely af­fected her abil­ity to work, and her con­tract with Para­mount fell apart shortly after her diagnosis. De­spite her health prob­lems, Lupino di­rected, pro­duced, and wrote many films. Her ex­pe­ri­ence with the dis­ease gave Lupino the courage to focus on her in­tel­lec­tual abil­i­ti...


    Lupino was mar­ried and di­vorced three times. She mar­ried actor Louis Hay­wardin No­vem­ber 1938. They sep­a­rated in May 1944 and di­vorced in May 1945. Her sec­ond mar­riage was to pro­ducer Col­lier Youngon 5 Au­gust 1948. They di­vorced in 1951. When Lupino filed for di­vorce in Sep­tem­ber that year, she was al­ready preg­nant from an af­fair with fu­ture hus­band Howard Duff. The child was born seven months after she filed for di­vorce from Young. Lupino's third and final mar­riage wa...

    Lupino died from a stroke while un­der­go­ing treat­ment for colon can­cer in Los An­ge­les on 3 Au­gust 1995, at the age of 77. Her mem­oirs, Ida Lupino: Be­yond the Camera, were edited after her death and pub­lished by Mary Ann Anderson.

    Lupino learned film­mak­ing from every­one she ob­served on set, in­clud­ing William Ziegler, the cam­era­man for Not Wanted. When in pre­pro­duc­tion on Never Fear, she con­ferred with Michael Gor­don on di­rec­to­r­ial tech­nique, or­ga­ni­za­tion, and plot­ting. Cin­e­matog­ra­pher Archie Stout said of Ms. Lupino, "Ida has more knowl­edge of cam­era an­gles and lenses than any di­rec­tor I've ever worked with, with the ex­cep­tion of Vic­tor Flem­ing. She knows how a woman looks on the screen and what light that woman should have, prob­a­bly bet­ter than I do." Lupino also worked with ed­i­tor Stan­ford Tis­chler, who said of her, "She wasn't the kind of di­rec­tor who would shoot some­thing, then hope any flaws could be fixed in the cut­ting room. The act­ing was al­ways there, to her credit." Au­thor Ally Acker com­pares Lupino to pi­o­neer­ing silent-film di­rec­tor Lois Weber for their focus on con­tro­ver­sial, so­cially rel­e­vant top­ics. With their am­bigu­ous end­ings, L...
