Directed by Ida Lupino (USA, 1953, 80 min.). Digital.

Ida Lupino directs and stars in this sympathetic portrait of an ordinary man who finds himself in the arms of two women: an upper-crust lady and a tough-talking waitress. San Francisco businessman Harry Graham (Edmond O’Brien) is in the process of adopting a child with his wife and business partner, Eve (Joan Fontaine). When private investigator Jordan (Edmund Gwenn) uncovers the fact that Graham has another wife, Phyllis (Lupino), and a small child in Los Angeles, he confesses everything. In flashback, Graham tells of the strains in his marriage with Eve and how he found himself falling for the kind-hearted waitress Phyllis while on a business trip.

Co-presented with the Boston Women’s Film Festival.
