Today is Ida Lupino's birthday. She would have been either 97 or 93, depending on which birthdate you prefer (2/4/1914 or 2/4/1918). Both dates are out there, but Wikipedia and IMDb say 1918, and I'm sticking with them. But we can be pretty sure that today is the day.
Ida Lupino website to see movie trailers, review her accomplishments as an actress, writer, and director. You can also watch full episodes of her many television appearances — which is exactly why god made the Internet.
Ida Lupino is also featured as the Turner Classic Movies Star of the Month, but it's a little hard to tell whether it's this month they're talking about. No matter. TCM provides some good synopses of her films and of course, dishy photos.
Happy 90-ish birthday, Ida Lupino!
