Event Details

Harry Graham (Edmond O’Brien) is a San Francisco businessman in the process of adopting a child with his wife and business partner, Eve (Joan Fontaine). In vetting the couple, the adoption agency’s private investigator discovers Harry has another wife, Phyllis (Ida Lupino), with whom he already has a child. When confronted, Harry confesses, detailing through flashbacks how he met Phyllis on a business trip during a strained period in his marriage with Eve. The Bigamist was the final feature film Lupino helmed as director for The Filmakers, the independent production company she co-founded with her by-then ex-husband Collier Young. In a remarkable twist, Lupino’s co-star (and good friend) Fontaine was married at the time to Young, creating an interesting mirroring effect for the production. 35mm preservation print courtesy of the UCLA Film & Television Archive.
