Description

This Kino Lorber set features her first 2 films (NOT WANTED, NEVER FEAR) which were made in 1949 and two from 1953 (THE HITCHHIKER, THE BIGAMIST). Left out were her most controversial film OUTRAGE which deals with the aftermath of a rape and THE HARD, THE FAST & THE BEAUTIFUL about a female tennis player and her domineering mother. 3 of the 4 deal with social issues while THE HITCHHIKER is a thriller in the film noir tradition. Tired of being given increasingly uninteresting parts after World War II, Lupino and her then husband Collier Young founded The Filmmakers, an independent company that wanted to produce small low budget films that dealt with social issues as seen and experienced from a woman's point of view. All of these movies were made for less than $200,000 and most were shot on location in Los Angeles and the surrounding area.
