Films First Female Helmer
February 4, 1918 – August 3, 1995
Ida Lupino described herself as 'the poor man's Bette Davis.' She became known for her hard-boiled roles, and appeared in such films as They Drive by Night (1940) and High Sierra (1941), both opposite Humphrey Bogart. She acted regularly and was in high demand throughout the 1940s. Throughout the '40s and '50s, women directors were virtually unheard of in Hollywood. Ida Lupino was the exception. In the late '40s, she searched for greater creative control and formed a production company, The Filmakers, with her then husband Collier Young. They shot their films on location with small budgets, often tackling subjects that Hollywood rarely dared touch, such as unwed motherhood and bigamy.

Often I pretended to a cameraman to know less than I did.
That way I got more cooperation.
