H.M. Pulham, Esq. Reviews
For feminists, this film might be interesting in that Hedy Lamarr is doing exactly what the female characters in Mad Men are doing(working in an ad agency), but in a 70 year-old film, and early on she announces her dream is to become a partner in her agency. Her intelligence, strength, and ambition are treated as perfectly normal--even admirable--traits in this film from all those years ago. By the end of the film, she *is* the head of a firm. But along with these strong qualities, she conveys a touching vulnerability, and a childlike joy as she falls in love with Young. It is easy to see how these two characters could find much to love and admire in each other. All-in-all, a film to watch if you think romantic love is beautifully and realistically depicted in other films. This one could change your mind.
