Classical Hollywood Film ResponseThe Hitch-Hiker is a spine chiller about a psychopathic executioner who seizes two men andforces them on a strain stuffed ride. Considering a genuine bad behavior and made with storystyle credibility, the 1953 film showed up when film noir and social issue pictures spellboundgroups. Its capable, direct describing and sharp utilization of expectation take after an inflexiblelittle programmer on a shallow level. Regardless, its co-creator and boss, Ida Lupino, uses thecircumstance to uncover the shortfall of control in post bellum America. Lupino, a phenomenalwoman manager of the time, shot a movement of low-spending plan, uninhibitedly madepictures in Hollywood. Her indisputable perspective, which neither lines up with the ordinarystudio stance nor an immovably ladies' dissident one, changes The Hitch-Hiker into a film thatdepicts the social maltreatment of after war America on the individual.
