Happy Birthday Ida Lupino

Ida Lupino was born in London, England in 1918. She was born into a show business family, and got her first film role in 1931. Ida is best known for her tough girl roles in 1940's movies, and not only did she act but she directed! Ida was the first woman to direct a film noir with "The Hitch-Hiker". She also kept busy from the 50's to the 70's directing a ton of TV shows such as "The Twilight Zone" and "The Untouchables". Happy Birthday Ida!

Ida is one of my favorite actresses, and in honor of her birthday, I am OD'ing on her films this month.

These are lovely pictures of her.
