Was the sexism satirically inflated?
This film was written and released a few years before I was born - and by the time I discovered in the late 80s, its attitudes toward women in the workplace seemed cartoonishly sexist. Not really in an offensive way, and I realize some of this is inflated for effect in the dialogue, almost like exposition toward a character or a setting.
Then I think to myself, maybe it's more accurate of the time then I realized. Wherever the truth, I think it's pretty clear that Vidal had a somewhat dismissive opinion of women at the time himself.
Who remembers 1964? Does this film seem accurate, inflated or even downplayed?
