What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this old-fashioned comedy will be appreciated most by filmgoers who delight in the culture, charm, and artistry of old movies. It will not be of interest to most younger kids. Divorce is a core plot device and a young child is shown terribly upset at the prospect of her parents separating. As was typical in 1939, the few visible African-American women are portrayed only as servants. With one exception (a self-professed "old maid writer"), the women at the center of the story have neither careers nor involvement in any activities other than gossiping, shopping, visiting beauty salons, and witty repartee. They're either wealthy, indulged, and defined by their husbands, or they're predators, on the lookout for rich men to marry.
