Rich relations?
21 November 2014 | by denisa-dellingerSee all my reviews

I love old movies and so when this film came on a free movie app, I jumped at the chance to watch an old romance movie. As it comes out in 1937 and is of poor quality, I tried to look beyond the grainy features. This film is about a Mary Tyler Mooresque career girl trying to make good in the city as a secretary. She just happened to have the last name of a very wealthy family in Chicago which is where the story took place. When asked if she was related, she said distantly, which really was such a little fib that it could have very well have been true. Within two seconds of the film's beginning we see what pretty career women may have put up with in the thirties, sexual harassment on a grand scale. The men got close to her and began making innuendos and trying to get her to go out with them. As a working girl, I became very uncomfortable with this kind of lecherous atmosphere. Nancy, the main character was not a particularly strong character and began to play into the game. She was warned off one of the men by another coworker who seemed to think the man was her property. Nancy went out with him anyway. She went out with another male within the company, so there was a little competition. Nancy seems to fall in love with the wrong guy which always seems to happen with girls in romance movies. When her little white lie comes to light, it becomes not so little. A surprise ending made me scratch my head and say "What?"
