Ida Lupino was a pioneer among women filmmakers.

She was not only fine actresses (appearing in 59 films) and a successful writer (penning five films and four TV episodes in her 48 year career), she became the second woman to be admitted to the Director's Guild - the first was Dorothy Arzner (1897-1979).

In total Ida directed nine movies and over 50 television show episodes.

If that wasn't enough, she was also an accomplished music composer. She composed a musical score called Aladdin’s Lamp which was performed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic in the summer of 1937.

She actually preferred music and had hoped to devote all her time and energy to it one day.
