The Man I Love
Ida Lupino excels as a New York nightclub singer who decides to visit her family in California.
Dir Raoul Walsh
With Ida Lupino, Robert Alda, Bruce Bennett, Martha Vickers
Ida Lupino excels as a New York nightclub singer who, recovering from an unhappy affair, decides to visit her family in California. There, while trying to help with their various problems, she tries to rebuild her own life, while fending off a lecherous boss with murky connections. Walsh handles the multi-stranded narrative with characteristic skill, while Lupino’s unsentimental performance provides a welcome emotional coherence.
