Double Feature with THE HITCH-HIKER

1949 • dir Ida Lupino, Elmer Clifton w/Sally Forrest, Keefe Brasselle, Leo Penn • 91 min • DCP

In 1948, legendary screen actress Ida Lupino left Warner Bros. to co-found The Filmmakers, an independent production company conceived as an alternative to the dominant aesthetics of Hollywood. With the low-key, intimate NOT WANTED, Lupino tackled the taboo topic of out-of-wedlock pregnancy, immediately venturing into terrain where big-budget mainstream fantasy-spinners feared to tread.

“A startling blend of compassion and invention.” – Richard Brody, New Yorker
