Ida was born in London to a show business family. In 1933, her mother brought Ida with her to an audition and Ida got the part her mother wanted. The picture was Her First Affaire (1932). Ida, a bleached blonde, came to Hollywood in 1934 and played small and insignificant parts. Peter Ibbetson (1935) was one of her few noteworthy movies and it was not until The Light That Failed (1939) that she got a chance to get better parts. In most of her movies, she was cast as the hard, but sympathetic woman from the wrong side of the tracks. In The Sea Wolf (1941) and High Sierra (1941), she played the part magnificently. It has been said that no one could do hard-luck dames the way Lupino could do them. She played tough, knowing characters who held their own against some of the biggest leading men of the day – Humphrey Bogart, Ronald Colman, John Garfield and Edward G. She made a handful of films during the forties playing different characters ranging from Pillow to Post (1945), where she played a traveling saleswoman to the tough nightclub singer in The Man I Love (1947). But good roles for women were hard to get and there were many young actresses and established stars competing for those roles. She left Warner Brothers in 1947 and became a freelance actress. When better roles did not materialize, Ida stepped behind the camera as a director, writer and producer. Her first directing job came when director Elmer Clifton fell ill on a script that she co-wrote Not Wanted (1949). Ida had joked that as an actress, she was the poor man’s Bette Davis. Now, she said that as a director, she became the poor man’s Don Siegel. The films that she wrote, or directed, or appeared in during the fifties were mostly inexpensive melodramas. She later turned to Television where she directed episodes in shows such as The Untouchables (1959) and The Fugitive (1963). In the seventies, she did guest appearances on various television show and small parts in a few movies. IMDb Mini Biography By: Tony Fontana Scotty Welbourne was born on May 14, 1907 in North Carolina and by the end of his career he not only photographed great film stars but also became a wonderfully known cinematographer and director. Mptv (dot) net says of Welbourne: Scotty Welbourne replaced Elmer Fryer as department head at Warner Bros. In 1941, photographing many of the studio’s newer stars, including Lana Turner, Ann Sheridan, Ida Lupino, Humphrey Bogart, and Alexis Smith, as well as Marlene Dietrich and Merle Oberon. During the shooting of “Fools for Scandal” (1938), he took 686 pictures of Carole Lombard in one day. Welbourne worked at Warners into the 1940s, taking photos of studio stars such as Jane Wyman and Bette Davis. However, movie buffs may best know Welbourne for his work in the 1950s horror genre — he handled photography of the underwater sequences for director Jack Arnold’s 1955 3-D gem Revenge Of The Creature. ” Recalled Rico Browning, who was in the gill man’s suit when filming took place underwater, “The cameraman, Scotty Welbourne, also did some directing under the water. He built the housings for the two 3-D cameras, which were placed beside each other, and they flooded twice, and had to be overhauled overnight to have them ready to go the next day. Welbourne believed that the proper use of light and shadow was the answer to most of the photographer’s problems and that the photograph or the photographer must never overshadow the subject in importance [but] must always be of secondary importance to the star. Welbourne left Warner Bros. In 1945 to set up, with Madison Lacy and former MGM publicity photographer Bud Graybill, the stills department at Enterprise Productions, a short-lived production company that made three or four films, among them “Arch of Triumph”(1948). He was often a uncredited still photographer for films such as “Public Enemy, ” “The Sound and the Fury, ” and The Creature From the Black Lagoon. He passed away on May 25, 1979 shortly after his 72nd birthday in Los Angeles, California. Biography c/o VintageMovieStarPhotos (dot) BlogSpot (dot) com.
