Critic Reviews for The Bigamist
[A] glossy yet granular melodrama about the stresses and deceptions of marriage, work, and romance.
Lupino takes a down-to-earth look at the ethics of marriage and the moral dilemmas of bigamy, but while his melodrama has interesting moments, I have a feeling that it lacks dramatic punch. [Full review in Spanish]
Lupino's treatment of an adulterous husband is so even-handed, so sympathetic, you don't just feel for him; you understand him.
While viewers' reactions will likely vary greatly, Lupino refuses to take sides, and the result is a film that exists in a surprising moral gray area rarely seen in 1953.
Audience Reviews for The Bigamist
Ida Lupino fluidly directs and stars in this curious piece that seems to look as if it wants to rationalise a gentleman having 2 wives. Ed O'Brien is the poor travelling salesman who gets lonely on the road, who loves 2 women, and Ed Gwynne is the agency guy who discovers his secret. This was better than I thought it was going to be and Lupino rises on my estimation for the conscious choices she makes as a director that are different from usual studio think. Give her a shot, she earns it.
