This movie is interesting not only as a representation of its time (contemporary period), but also for the many examples of what we would now consider sexual harassment of women both socially and in the work place. Some of these forms of what would now be thought of as harassment were actually considered to be flattering flirtation (e.g., grabbing, uninvited sitting at a table, unwanted following, etc.). One intriguing example of overt sexual harassment occurs in a sales training session for Aladdin Electric Razors. The head of sales (O.O. Oglethorpe) "hits" on the female lead. When she rejects him, there is laughter from the other women in the room. What is interesting is that if you look at the women on screen, none of them are laughing, or even look amused. The laughter was obviously inserted in post-production.
Oh, now folks please; you can't do that, you can't. Do you realize you are kissing and canoodling?
