Frako Loden Explores Lost and Found Women Directors: Ida Lupino’s Outrage & The Bigamist

5 March 2009 10:40 PM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Lately I’ve been thinking about the lost careers of female directors.  Watching Barbara Loden‘s Wanda (1971) can do that to you.  Despite our common surnames she’s not related to me that I know of, but watching that film makes me think of long-lost sisters.  Lost in that I don’t know them—I never got to know them—and lost in that they have become unmoored from something stable and sure, struggling for footing in a male-dominated world.

The heroine of Wanda is an extreme version of the heroines I’ve discovered in the films of Ida Lupino (1918-1995), another actress who turned to directing mid-career.  Lupino herself can’t exactly be considered lost as a director—she has a decent body of feature-film work and an impressive television resume.  But seeing what she left behind, it’s tempting to think how many more films she might have »
