1953 was a very good year for Brit actress Ida Lupino on the other side of the camera as a film director. In the spring of that year her film, The Hitch-Hiker (now counted among the best film noir releases from that year), was released theatrically … and at Christmas, it was The Bigamist.
Both films were directed by Lupino, with scripts from her former husband, Collier Young and both films starred Edmond O’Brien, with the latter, The Bigamist, also featuring Joan Fontaine, Edmund Gwenn, Kenneth Tobey and Ida Lupino as the other woman in this taut dramatic tale.
Word came this week that The Bigamist has been received a hi-def restoration from the original 35mm film elements and will be made available on DVD for collectors to enjoy on Mar. 25.
