Portrayal of Infidelity

It seems like films from this era showed people involved in infidelity as kind of out in the open. The cheated on spouse often accepts it as a loss while maintaining a personal decorum of sorts. Ann Dvorak didn't seem too emotional as Bette tells her she has snagged her husband. Saw similar thing in The Women of 1939.
