IDA’S happiest when she's loafing, caHs herself "the poor man's Bette Davis"
She’d Dye Her Hair Pnrple
BY ROBERT CONDON
Ilia Lupino does things
just to surprise guests.
Dinner at home is like
the Mad Hatter’s party
r A Lupino inherit* her acting
ability from a stage family that
dates back to the 17th century. Her
wackiness stems from the same
source.
The original Lupines were travel
ing puppeteers and merry-andrews,
hailing originally from Italy but set
♦ling finally in London. For nearly
three centuries there has always been
a Lupino on the British stage. Ida’s
father was the late Stanley Lupino,
a world-famous comedian. He mar
ried Connie Emerald, who came
from another famous theatrical
family.
Connie Lupino sets the pace for
the Lupino household in Beverly
Hills. Ida improves upon it. It is not
a conventional household. At their
parties there are always people who
seem to know neither each other nor
the hostess.
Recently a Hollywood agent was
invited to the Lupino home on a
matter of business. He was ushered
to a table occupied by about 18
other people. The agent, feeling cor
rectly that he had blundered into a
family celebration, tried to explain
who he was, bat Connie frowned
him to a seat and continued with
the long and stately harangue that
he had interrupted.
She addressed herself separately
to everyone at the table, expressing
her warm regard for each, until it
came the turn of the luckless in
truder. There she paused.
“And who are you?" she demanded
loudly.
Like mother, like daughter. Ida is
an amiable but erratic
hostess. She will invite
friends to dinner and for
get that she invited them.
The Fuller Brush man. on
the other hand, may find
him—-If mistakenly sum
moned in for cocktails.
It is not unusual for
Miss Lupino to spend
three hours in her boudoir
while the company waits. Then
she’ll emerge, like as not. with her
hair dyed purple. She has never been
satisfied with her natural auburn.
The Lupino home is bewildering
to the neighbors. Ida starts the day
noisily at four in the afternoon or
three in the morning, depending on
when she feels like getting out of bed.
She has been known to ring up friends
at 3 a.m. for pre-dawn cocktails.
At any hour she is a brilliant and
untiring conversationalist. Of late
her talk, always amusing, has been
centered an her health which, she is
convinced, is quite bad. Actually
she’s usually in perfect health.
Her major neurosis is the vague
freKng of "having forgotten tome
thing.” It haunts her always, and is
quite often justified. She was once
scheduled to leave (or New York,
started out in a car far the station,
and wound up mysteriously at
Romanoffs, where she sat and
brooded: “Now I wooder
what 1 have forgotten this
time."
Up At Six
An this vagueness of
purpose applies, of course,
to her non-working hours.
On the job she drives her
self hard. She will get up
at 6 a.m., work all day on
the lot. and be home at seven. When
supper, about which she invariably
complains, is ended, she will go to
her room and study her lines until
close to working time again. On
these occasions, a whisper in an ad
joining room will bring her out rag
ing and demanding quiet.
Her talents are many and scat
tered. She dances, sings, writes plays
and short stories, composes music.
Her “Aladdin Suite” was performed
by the Philharmonic Symphony Or
She is also a fine »ctre9^V^
»-■ “
bwdit. to Wit. ol
this, Hollywood cast her originally
as an ingenue.
She has fought against bad
roles, once broke a $l,750-a-week
contract because she was dis
gusted with her parts.
In her newest picture, "Deep
Valley,” which comes better-her
alded than most, she is no ingenue.
Ever since her major successes in
"The Light That Failed" and ‘•They
Drive by Night,” she has been play
ing highly emotional if not always
well-integrated roles.
“I’m the poor man’s Bette Davis,”
she says wryly.
