The New Woman
12 December 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The 40 year old Cecil B. DeMille was obviously gearing this film towards a middle class female audience. He pays careful attention to the clothes that the leading lady wears and the shopping that she buys. She is presented as the trendy woman of the 1920's, and sort of isolates the male community.
