Happy Birthday, Ida Lupino: Next on TVC

We’ll celebrate the centennial birthday of film legend Ida Lupino along with author Mary Ann Anderson as part of a special encore edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio,  KSAV.org.

Mary Ann Anderson will join us this week as we remember the life and career of Ida Lupino, the iconic actress and pioneering film director who was born on February 4, 1918. Mary’s books include Ida Lupino: Beyond the Camera, the story of Ida’s life and career (in Ida’s own words), The Making of The Hitch-Hiker: Illustrated, a behind-the-scenes look at the classic 1953 film noir thriller directed by Ida Lupino, Portrait of a Soap Star: The Emily McLaughlin Story, and Louis Hayward: Behind the Iron Mask. Ida Lupino: Beyond the Camera was recently updated as part of a special centennial birthday edition that includes more than 150 photographs.

In addition to talking about Ida Lupino, we will hear from Ida herself, in the form of audio highlights from a 1991 interview with author A.M. Sperber in which Ida talks about her dear friend Humphrey Bogart. Mary Ann Anderson will join us in our first hour.

For our listeners in Southern California, Mary Ann Anderson is scheduled to appear at the Larry Edmunds Bookshop on Hollywood Blvd. during the month of March. For more information, go to LarryEdmunds.com. For our listeners in Northern California, Ida Lupino: Hard, Fast and Beautiful, a month-long film festival celebrating the films of Ida Lupino, is currently showing at The UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive through Saturday, Feb. 24. For tickets and more information, go to BAMPFA.org.

Our first hour will pay tribute to the life and career of Adam West, the iconic actor known to three generations of television viewers around the world as Batman (and, to fans of Family Guy, Mayor Adam West). The segment will include highlights from our interviews with actresses Lee Meriwether and Julie Newmar.
