Selling deep-freezes has been very good for west coast salesman Edmond
O'Brien. He maintains a posh apartment in San Francisco and a bungalow in
Los Angeles, both equipped with all the appurtenances of post-war
prosperity, including a wife in each.
In the city by the bay, Joan Fontaine serves as his helpmate not only at
home but at work, where she serves as his executive secretary. But those
long trips south can get lonely, and one afternoon, killing time on a tour
bus, he flirts with Ida Lupino. Next thing, she's pregnant and married to
He might have gotten away with living his bigamous life but for the fact
that he and the barren Fontaine decide to adopt a child. Enter Edmund
Gwenn, an investigator for the adoption agency. No flies on Gwenn: He
delves into O'Brien's background as if he were vetting him for Secretary of
Defense. Caught in his two acts, O'Brien divulges his sad saga, in
flashback, to the fascinated Gwenn.
Directed by Lupino, The Bigamist looks like it's going to turn into a weeper
but doesn't quite make it. For one thing, odd touches crop up. The San
Francisco high-rise is decorated in chic Chinoiserie, while in Los Angeles,
Lupino slings chop suey in a dump called the Canton Café. Then, on the tour
of Beverly Hills mansions, the driver points out the homes of movie stars;
among them is Edmund Gwenn's. Meant as a light in-joke, it ends up as a
distancing ploy when O'Brien and Lupino start chatting about Miracle on 34th
But, closer to the bone, The Bigamist treats O'Brien with lavish sympathy.
To be sure, there are the ritualistic mentions of `the moral laws we all
live by' and the like, but on the whole he's portrayed as a victim of
circumstance. For every victim, however, there's usually a villain. In
this case, the finger wags at Fontaine, who can't bear a child and who takes
her husband's work more seriously than she takes his ego.
Much is made, justifiably, of Lupino's bucking the male-dominated system by
daring to direct movies. Yet The Bigamist demonstrates how hard it must
have been to buck the social outlook of America in the early Eisenhower era.
Gossipy note: Writer/producer of The Bigamist was Collier Young, Lupino's
second husband. They divorced in 1951, two years before they collaborated
on this movie. She went on to marry Howard Duff; he to wed none other than
Joan Fontaine. It must have made for an interesting production.
