@ For Advance Feature or Column Ida Lupino—Year’s Most _ Sensational Dramatic. Star Ida Lupino is the fourth generation of ‘the famous British family of actors. Four generations of Englishmen have witnessed the launching of Lupino careers at the historic old Palladium theatre in London, and Ida didn’t let her generation down. But is doubtful whether any member of the family has attained such wide audiences as this slim, lovely branch of the family tree, who is now one of the screen’s most famed dramatic stars. She was fifteen when she made the traditional family debut. To get into acting at this age she had to rush her education a bit but she was impatient to get school days by and enter the profession that is the lifeblood of every member of her family. Her early education included the usual school subjects plus diction, dancing and deportment. Having a paternal line like the Lupinos and a _ famous mother like Connie Emerald, would have given some children an inferiority complex, but not Ida. While she has always possessed more driving energy and ambition than physical strength, Ida decided eight years ago that it was high time she made a name for herself in America. Her first screen role was in “Search For Beauty,” a picture which also introduced a certain redhead named Ann Sheridan to movie audiences. And it was with Ann’s help that she made good on her second film assignment. ‘Double Doors” was the picture, and the very young Miss Lupino had applied for and won the role of a 70-year old woman. With Pere Westmore’s aid she learned to make up for the part, but during rehearsals another problem came up. She had to cry, and she couldn’t cry. Miss Sheridan, who was in the same cast, could and did cry, copiously. Ida watched her enviously for a while, then she began to cry at the thought that Ann could do something she coudln’t do. After which everything was fine. The Lupino and Sheridan careers touched again when both appeared in ‘‘They Drive by Night,” in which Ida scored such a sensational dramatic hit as the love-maddened wife. In “High Sierra,” she plays the girl friend of a desperado. She brings to the role a pathos and depth of emotional feeling which should push the Lupino career up to another peak achievement. In private life, Ida is Mrs. Louis Hayward. For a family life which includes two acting careers, theirs is a most peaceful one. If they’re both working at the same time, swell. That means that vacations will come at the same time, too. If one is Still HS 27; Mat 101—15c ... plays desperado’s girl friend working and the other is not, that’s good, too. The one who is in the sidelines at the moment frequently is able to help the other. Ida’s pet extravagance is buying antiques. She buys and wears expensive and _ lovely frocks because she is able to afford them, but considers them highly unimportant to her happiness. She is an individualist and is said to be the only woman who ever walked down Broadway wearing a smart tailored suit — and a pair of carpet slippers. She always kicks off her slippers when eating in a restaurant. Once when she was eating at the Beverly-Wilshire, someone accidentally gave one of her slippers a kick and sent it flying across the polished floor. A waiter brought it back to her on a silver platter. She avoids mad hats, and welcomes her husband’s suggestions about hats and clothes. They both like simple, well-made things and avoid the spectacular. But she thinks that neither her judgment or any other woman’s is really up to picking the right necktie for her husband.
