Did You Know?
This short film places a significant emphasis on the ease of divorce in Nevada. At the time of the film's release, and for several preceding decades, Nevada had gained a reputation for having extraordinarily liberal laws for divorce in relation to the rest of the country. A prospective divorcée simply had to establish residence for a few weeks in the state, usually at a hotel or resort, and then legally file for divorce. Contemporary viewers may find this emphasis on divorce odd out of context. See more
