After making her directing bow with Not Wanted (1949), which she cowrote, Lupino went on to helm six low-budget features: Never Fear (1949); Outrage (1950); Hard, Fast and Beautiful (1951); On Dangerous Ground (1952); The Hitch-Hiker (1953); and The Bigamist (1953). Most of her later directorial efforts were for television, including episodes of "The Untouchables" (1959), "The Twilight Zone" (1959) and "The Fugitive" (1963); she also guest starred on shows such as "Barnaby Jones" and "Charlie's Angels."
Lupino died in Los Angeles Aug. 3, 1995.
After a bender on the waterfront, longshoreman Bobo (great French star Jean Gabin) fears he may have committed murder and quickly finds work on a remote barge, where he rescues beautiful waitress Anna (Ida Lupino) from suicide. As love blooms for the pair, Bobo's shady friend Tiny (Thomas Mitchell) uses the murder as blackmail in this melancholy drama, scripted by novelist John O'Hara. Cinematographer Charles G. Clarke was nominated for an Oscar.
