This film features many important Manhattan sites. Thirty-three minutes into the film, Caroline Bender (Hope Lange) and April Morison (Diane Baker) are crossing Christopher Street from south to north near where Waverly Place comes into Christopher Street east of Sheridan Square. They walk east on Christopher Street, while carrying on a conversation. Look above their heads. In the rear, you will see the red neon sign of The Stonewall Inn lit up, even though the afternoon sun is still shining. Yes, this is the same Stonewall Inn where a decade later the modern gay liberation movement began when drag queens confronted police who had come to raid the bar. See more »

More equality today, much more, but overall nothing has changed. All the sad, tawdry, pathetic, moving and bitter moments between women and men in the office is just as it is today, less the blatant sexual harassment. Love looking at old pics of nyc and looking in store windows....things seem surprisingly familiar and not dated.
