Description
Summary:In 1948, legendary screen actress Ida Lupino left Warner Bros. to co-found The Filmmakers, an independent production company conceived as an alternative to the dominant aesthetics of Hollywood. With the low-key, intimate 'Not Wanted' Lupino tackled the 'taboo' topic of out-of-wedlock pregnancy, immediately venturing into terrain where big-budget mainstream fantasy-spinners feared to tread. In many ways this extraordinary first directorial effort, while uncredited, already bears the stamp of Lupino's unique vision: the remarkable empathy felt for the lead character Sally Forrest as the dazed, traumatized young waitress thrust into the world of unwed motherhood, the hallucinatory moments ... of the childbirth sequence, and the deft location-shooting as Forrest wanders through the bus stations and boarding houses of small-town America.
