  • The Hitch-Hiker

    1953. USA. Directed by Ida Lupino. Screenplay by Lupino, Collier Young. With Edmond O’Brien, Frank Lovejoy. In one of the few Lupino-directed features that does not place a woman at the center of the narrative, two buddies on a fishing trip pick up a hitchhiker. The passenger, who has already murdered two others, taunts the men with their impending death at the end of the drive. Remember what your mother told you: never stop for a hitchhiker! 71 min.
