Actually, this one isn't that bad regarding its social attitudes, particularly considering it was made in 1967. Okay, it may have missed that not all woman consumers are white and that not all working women work in offices. But we should give it points just for realizing that unmarried, childless and working women are human beings, which is more than can be said for certain politicians and journalists of today.Plus, the film does offer some nice swanky 1960s fashions. And a lot of frumpy ones, including what must be the world's ugliest wedding dress. My parents got married in 1965, i.e. two years before this film, and while my Mom's dress isn't the most attractive ever, it's nowhere near as awful as this one.
Yeah, I just love the vibe of these old films--no matter what they're about. Swanky is definitely the key word for most."Actually, this one isn't that bad regarding its social attitudes"Most of the commentators at archive.org would disagree with that statement. However, I was thinking along those same lines myself with this one (for the most part).
Cora, are you talking about the wedding dress? Because I would have to agree that it looked awful. Everything else was fine. I especially like that swanky orange-ish one and the emerald green ensamble but that wedding dress was terrible.
Yes, I was talking about the wedding dress, which was indeed awful. Most of the other clothes were fine, except for the grandma's dress. I particularly like the canary yellow dress at the beginning.
Where do you find this stuff? I love it, but have to laugh. This is murder!!!!
