One aspect not mentioned by other reviewers was the Roaring Twenties fashion, lingering into the 30s, among the rich society crowd of a (presumably lesbian or bisexual) woman dressing and acting like a man. One of the women commented to her mother that she had seen them with boyish bobbed hair and mannish clothes but this was the first one with a moustache. So there was not only the idea of two men being married but of a man and a bisexual woman being married. I'm sure poor Charley didn't want to be taken for a woman anymore than as a homosexual man.

The fact that they weren't denied access anywhere spoke to the liberalism of high society then. The idea that marriage is a business arrangement and a proposal is the making of a contract would go along with that of companionate marriage being more sensible and urbane than old fashioned-Victorian, small town romantic notions.

I hadn't realized that a woman's corsage was worn on the side at the waist then because at the lapel it was a man's boutonniere. I find early films educational as well as entertaining. I'd choose one made in that era over one made about that era--unless it had been made by people who had fairly recently lived through it, such as the WWI stories of the 20s with former flying aces.
