Capital Celluloid 2018 - Day 147: Tue Jun 5

Never Fear (Lupino, 1949): BFI Southbank, NFT3, 8.50pm

This 35mm screening, which is part of the Ida Lupino season (full details here), is also being shown on Sunday June 3rd. You can find the full details by clicking on this link.

Chicago Reader review:
Ida Lupino's first official directing credit (her previous year's work on 
Not Wanted had been credited to Elmer Clifton) attaches to this story of a dancer who refuses to be defeated in her battle with a crippling disease. Lupino's perennial regard for female resourcefulness and strength is embodied in the stricken dancer's insistence on pursuing her career and romantic goals, despite the deflationary expectations of the men in her life. With Sally Forrest, Keefe Brasselle, and Hugh O'Brien.
