something in common

some women reach an understanding based on a mutual experience. in the case of actresses ida lupino and joan fontaine, it was perhaps a bond established by the fact that they were both (at different times) married to the same man, film producer/writer collier young. that plot thickened when ida put on the director hat for 1953's 'the bigamist.' in this film the two actresses are married to the same man at the same time. wow. even if the film is not absolutely great, their performances are. joan fontaine is just so excellently unaware when playing annoying roles.
