My Ida Lupino Shrine

"Sixteen Millimeter Shrine"

This episode feels slight after the previous three episodes. Even so, it stars the never old Ida Lupino in what was surely a personal role. It's a well-known fact that Hollywood actresses rarely aged in their careers successfully. The next young thing was always ready to take over. Some of the lucky ones made it into TV. Many ended their careers early. This TZ episode is a sad acknowledgment and respectful nod of the head at all of these women cut off in their careers much too early.
