What a great movie to see with my mom in 1946!
28 August 2004 | by (Northwest Ohio, USA) – See all my reviews

I agree absolutely with - Xeresa6 of San Diego,Ca - her synopsis of this movie is gob smack right on! I just wanted to add that I at age 10 years, saw this movie in 1946 with my mom who was a teen in the flapper era and it was a sweet experience to enjoy this film with my mom. She regaled me with her stories of bloomers with broken elastic and safety pins.

Young girls today would not really pick up on the chains on the fireplace story without someone older 'walking' them through it. A lot is taken for granted today on the struggles of women not so very long ago to be able to have the right to vote.......we can learn a lot of history from these old movies - but it is wise to also check further into the history to be sure it is portrayed accurately in the film.

It is interesting to find out the film was made in Reno NV. It looked so much like the towns in Ohio where I grew up, that's probably one of the reasons why Mom and I connected with the film.

What a crass movie industry we have today. It is so hard to find non-violent and non-vulgar stories in the movies today. One can occasionally find a good movie but they are few and far between. I find myself looking to pre-1950 movies more and more. That is sad.
