Video: How Ida Lupino became the only woman to direct an ep of TV's "The Twilight Zone"

Background:

By the late 1940s British-born Ida Lupino had built herself a successful career as a Hollywood actor when - tired of being offered shallow female roles - she started rejecting scripts and was suspended by her studio. Jon Spira tells the story of how, through her company, The Filmakers, the remarkable star developed a career as the industry's only female producer and director, then found an unlikely home as the only woman to direct an episode of a 1950s TV classic, The Twilight Zone.
