The social drama was directed by Ida Lupino

The source material is excellent – both picture and sound.


Your brand-new DVD disc will be created from this source material (without any artwork), and will be supplied in a clear plastic wallet, NOT in a DVD case.


Note that the pictures attached are for illustrative purposes only, and are therefore NOT included or offered with this listing.



IMPORTANT NOTE for American, Canadian and other non-Region 2 buyers:

Produced by Collier Young, who also wrote the screen play from a story by Larry Marcus and Lou Schor


Synopsis:  Eve and Harry Graham (Joan Fontaine and Edmond O’Brien) are trying to adopt a baby. The head of the adoption agency (Edmund Gwenn) senses Harry is keeping a secret and does some investigating. He soon discovers Harry has done an unusual amount of travelling from his home in San Francisco to Los Angeles. Harry gets tracked down in LA where he has a second wife (Ida Lupino) and a baby. Via flashbacks, Harry tells the adoption agent how he ended up in two marriages.

-        Your film will come on a DVD-R disc in a plastic DVD sleeve with no artwork.

-        The title of the film will be written on this sleeve for your convenience.

-        Region 2 - PAL

-        Note: This DVD does not contain any menus.


-        This film is now in the PUBLIC DOMAIN.

-        Original U. S. copyright registration date: 24 November 1953

-        Original U.S. copyright number: LP5608

-        Copyright claimant: Filmakers Productions, Inc.

-        In 1981, the copyright claimant, Filmakers Productions, Inc., failed to renew its copyright registration in the 28th year after publication - that is in the 28th year after the film’s first release.

-        Therefore, when a copyright expires or is not properly renewed, that work then falls into the public domain and can be freely reproduced, distributed, and displayed.

-        Consequently, this film entered the public domain on the 1st January 1982.

-        This copyright information is taken from “Film Superlist: Motion Pictures in the U.S. Public Domain”, which is a series of reference books created by U.S. attorney Walter Hurst about the copyright status of American films.  This information was extracted from the legal records of the U.S. Copyright Office, to which all films must be registered for copyright protection. Under United States copyright law, films registered prior to 1964 required renewal during the 28th year following registration in order to continue copyright protection in the U.S.


Ida Lupino started directing films in 1949, which came about unexpectedly when Elmer Clifton suffered a mild heart attack and could not finish Not Wanted, the film he was directing for Filmakers. Lupino stepped in to finish the film and went on to direct her own projects, becoming Hollywood’s only female film director of that time.  She specialised in making “woman’s” films about social issues – Never Fear (1949), about a dancer who finds herself having to deal with polio; Outrage (1950) about a woman who is raped; Hard, Fast and Beautiful (1951) about a tennis prodigy who is torn between fulfilling the dreams of her ambitious mother Millie and her own dreams of being with the man she loves, and The Bigamist (1953, above).  Later that year, she directed the excellent “film-noir” crime drama, The Hitch-Hiker.
