In an era when Hollywood was dominated by well-entrenched males, Ida Lupino carved a niche for herself as a successful director, becoming only the second woman to be admitted to the director’s guild. Confident of her own capabilities as an actress, Ida stubbornly refused to play any hand-me-down roles - an act, that led to many suspensions. Never one to be done in by circumstances, Ida turned to direction when roles began to dry up. The Bigamist is a classic example of Ida’s talents both in front of a movie camera and behind it as well. has preserved this timeless Hollywood classic on DVD for generations to enjoy!

Running Time: 79 Minutes
MPAA Ratings: NR


Based on the ritualistic moral laws that governed American Society in the Eisenhower era, The Bigamist is an endearing attempt by director Ida Lupino to justify the misgivings of a successful deep-freeze salesman who is driven by circumstances into a second secret marriage.

Playing second fiddle probably came naturally to Ida, who was cast in several similar roles before she took up direction, but what she managed to squeeze out of Edmund O’Brien in terms of a performance is truly laudable. Edmund’s portrayal of a man who is successful in business but disgruntled with his personal life is magnificent. The plot unfolds nicely, showing Harry’s gradual disillusionment with life, his persistent but waning attempts at winning his wife’s attention and their unintended but steady drifting apart. Ida has done a fabulous job of showing how a man gives in little by little to internal pressures and circumstances. Although she has more or less a bit role to play in this classic, Joan Fontaine doesn’t miss the opportunity to show off her irresistible charm.

Most movie audiences would leave the halls believing "he couldn’t help it, she’s to blame", while purists may have an altogether different outlook. Be that as it may, The Bigamist comes pretty close to capturing real life situations in a very convincing manner and is a must see for those who are die-hard Ida Lupino fans or simply lovers of great Hollywood classics.


"Hats off to Ida Lupino - one of the gutsiest females to grace Hollywood’s male dominated studios. Her handling of her cast in ‘The Bigamist’ is just as effective as her handling of directors when she faced the camera. Always in control of her sets as she was of her life, Lupino seems to have brought a refreshingly new and characteristically feminine perspective to this classic, which is a must watch for all her fans and her detractors - if any! "
Clara Smith (Baltimore, Michigan)

"I just have to confess that that I fell in love with the charming Joan Fontaine. Boy she sure can carry herself and walk straight into a guy’s heart! She’s got a bitsy- witsy role but even that is enough for her to enlist an army of new fans. I really wish she had more to do in this fascinating classic, which portrays how a guy’s moral standards cave in under pressure!"
Steven Young (Palo Alto, California)
