Competent and well worthwhile watching if lacking in style

Ida Lupino's place in Hollywood film history is so unique and unusual that it's no wonder there is a general tendency to overate her output as a director Her moving from actress to director with great control over content was virtually unprecedented.

Although Lupino is not really an especially innovative or important director, (would that she were), she most certainly was a very competent film maker and as such should be remembered.

"The Yound Lovers" of "Never Fear" is a case in point. There is a lot going for this movie. The decidedly B cast of Sally Forest, Keefe Brasselle and Hugh O'Brian are completely convincing and turn in strong performances. This story too, is involving and moving making this all in all \ very watchable.

The problem is Lupino's lack of cinematic style. There's little chance you could spot that this was a Lupino work as you may do with Sirt, Siodamak. Lang, Mann and others of note.

Still, she was an important figure and her movies should be watched.
