It is the bottom of the depression and Sol Glass has the idea that the girls in the stenographic department should be used to entertain the clients. Seems the clients are tiring of the regular fast and hard women and this would be a change that would allow the girls to go to dinners and see shows. Tom does not want his fiancée, Flo, to go out with clients until he needs her to close a contract with Daniel. After that, she finds that Tom is two timing her with Birdie so she goes out again with Daniel. Everything is going well for a time until Daniel needs her to close a contract with Haines.Written by

She had her choice...quit her job and stay good...say yes and make good! What would you do if the boss gave you orders to get orders...to play overtime with away-from-home-husbands who come to buy dresses and stay to chase skirts! (Print ad from Los Angeles Times August 10, 1933)
And you, that Beau Marche account we had for over five years, and what happens, like that, they take their business to Aaron Wolf.
Say, that wasn't my fault. I know how we lost that account.
Look, he knows how he lost it. But, do you know maybe, Mr. Goran, how to keep an account?
Say listen, is it my fault because we have a bunch of worn out gold diggers as customer girls?
What's that got to do with it?
Well, I'll tell you. When a buyer is locked out in the hallway for over two hours in his ...

She did have to say yes - they all thought she did anyway
Yikes, when they said precode, they weren't kidding.
What a great social studies movie.
Loretta Young, Regis Toomey, and Lyle Talbot star in "She Had to Say Yes," from 1933. To keep major buyers purchasing from their clothing company, an organization has its models entertain the out-of-town customers. Dinner, a show, and there's a heavy implication of some after-show activity to bring in the big accounts. But the buyers are tired of the same old models.
One of the firm members, Tommy (Regis Toomey) suggests that instead of the models, they open these grand opportunities (which have bonuses attached) to the fresh, wholesome stenographic pool. One of the stenographers is his own fiancée Florence (Young), but she's off limits. However, one of the customers is desperate to go out with her, and with a big commission in the offing, Florence agrees. Florence is a complete innocent and thinks when it's dinner and theater, it's dinner and theater.
It goes from there, with Tommy fooling around on the side, and being caught by Florence. One of the buyers (Talbot) is truly interested in her, but some misunderstandings cause problems.
The problem here is that neither Toomey nor Talbot is what you'd call a good guy. But we're given to understand that all men are the same, so beautiful Florence's options are limited.
What a message. But you have to love Loretta Young, so gorgeous and so natural.
We're often given to believe, in films such as Waterloo Bridge, Baby Face, and countless others, that there were few opportunities for women to advance. They were often at the mercy of men who were their fathers, their bosses, their husbands. Since it's presented that way in film after film, I think, sadly, particularly during hard times, this was true.
This is really an interesting film. Depending on your age, think about your grandmother or great-grandmother watching this type of film and what it told them. The code was too limiting and ridiculous; I guess a happy medium just wasn't found.
