The Bigamist (1953) by Ida Lupino 80 min. BW 35mm
When Harry and Eve (Joan Fontaine) decide to adopt a baby, the man at the agency senses something amiss and looks into Harry's background. Instead of murder or armed robbery he finds... another woman. Similar in structure to Double Indemnity, The Bigamist musters compassion for its tragic characters while chipping away at the myth of the ideal post-war family.
