Not Wanted [DVD]
Call Number: PN1997 .N678 2007

In many ways this extraordinary first directorial effort, while uncredited, already bears the stamp of Lupino's unique vision: the remarkable empathy felt for the lead character Sally Forrest as the dazed, traumatized young waitress thrust into the world of unwed motherhood, the hallucinatory moments ... of the childbirth sequence, and the deft location-shooting as Forrest wanders through the bus stations and boarding houses of small-town America.
