Audience Reviews for The Bigamist

  • Sep 09, 2018
    Ida Lupino fluidly directs and stars in this curious piece that seems to look as if it wants to rationalise a gentleman having 2 wives. Ed O'Brien is the poor travelling salesman who gets lonely on the road, who loves 2 women, and Ed Gwynne is the agency guy who discovers his secret. This was better than I thought it was going to be and Lupino rises on my estimation for the conscious choices she makes as a director that are different from usual studio think. Give her a shot, she earns it.
