This is a continuing, if not regular, feature of this blog, whiich is to give you the wit and wisdom of old movies (and sometimes books) on dames. The first principle, of course, is that all women are dames, and that references to dames, girls and women are interchangeable. Here are some examples from "The Happy Time" (movie rating, 73 out of 100, where 60 is about the cut off for a movie worth seeing):
A man and his wife should not both work; everyone knows that. (From a man watching hi swife work, while drinking wine from a water cooler)
Never marry a wife with a career. She will tread on your feet all of your life. (From the same man described aboove)
That is how American women show affection. I have been to Detroit. (From an uncle of a boy who has shown the black and blue marks where a girl has repeatedly kicked him)
We have solved the problem: the sons will go to university, and the daughters will go to work. (Fom the samme man quoted in the first two examples above, as to how he "solved" the dispute with his prospetive son-in-law over whehter to send his hypothetical grandchildren to work, or have them educated at the son-in-law's expense)
As readers of this blog know, I have been forced (by sexist leftist, like those of CNN) to come out of the closet as a feminist (to my great shame and mortification). I was surprised to learn that some men had alredy embraced feminism, even in the 1950s. The idea of women working, while men and boys take it easy, is and idea to which I am becoming more favorable all of the time. Now that I have come out of the closet as a feminist, I feel I might as well go the whole. way. Women deserve to get the full respect to which they are due.
