Did You Know?

Pete Campbell tells Don Draper that the meeting with the Honda executives was a "Margaret Dumont" sized disaster. Margaret Dumont (1882-1965) was a large actress who played the buffoonish foil in seven Marx Brothers comedies. Using a haughty voice, with ladylike civility and apparently clueless to all of Groucho Marx's better satirical lines, Dumont added a comedic version of social stability to Marx Brothers comedies while Groucho, Chico and Harpo trashed her expensive high society parties, a ship's stateroom or an opera. Groucho always credited her for adding to the comedy and she was sometimes called the fifth Marx brother.See more »
Factual errors: When Roger, in his office, still angry about the company attempting to do business with a Japanese company, is talking to Joan, he relates briefly about his time on a U.S. Navy ship, a destroyer. He starts talking about "a young PFC" (private first class). This rank does not exist in the U.S. Navy. Also, while some Navy ships had a Marine Corps contingent aboard (This rank does exist in the USMC), destroyers did not.See more »

January Jones at her best..., 23 August 2010
Author: Red_Identity from United States

January Jones, who plays Betty, gets a lot of criticism. Some criticize her character, which in turn makes them criticize her. However, this episode shows that even though Betty Draper is cruel and cold-hearted to an extent, it does not go without reasoning. Betty Draper's conflicts have come from the pain that Don has caused her. Neither are to be blamed while the other goes without complaints. Both Don and Betty's lack of attention for their daughter Sally is causing her to go overboard, and this will in time affect the other children. Of course, the two parents will only notice too late, if ever they do notice, but January Jones is proving that she is perfectly playing the part of a mentally-abused mother in the 1960's.
