Escape Her Never

If you haven’t noticed already, there’s a two-day Ida Lupino Blogathon going on around the Web. Honoring the memory of the late, great English-born actress-director (who was also once married to the man who gave his voice to Sam Spade--listen here), this tribute has been engineered by none other than the Ida Lupino blog.

Among the participants are: Stacia Jones writing about the 1955 film, The Big Knife; Ivan G. Shreve Jr.’s recollections of Lupino’s contributions to The Twilight Zone; and Forever Classics’ look back at the co-starring appearances of Lupino with Humphrey Bogart.

Click here for a list of who’s taking part in this blogathon.

If you would simply like to reacquaint yourself with Lupino’s lengthy résumé of big- and small-screen work, refer to The Internet Movie Database (IMDb). She had roles not only in such films as High Sierra (1941), The Hard Way (1943), and On Dangerous Ground (1952), but also in numerous TV crime dramas, including Burke’s Law, The Mod Squad, The Streets of San Francisco, Columbo, and Ellery Queen.
