Response to Peary’s Review:
He points out that “Daw is sympathetic” as a “young model-actress… who must play the ‘game’ in order to get ahead in New York”, and that while the film is “nothing special” it “could have been worse”.
However, it will surely be hard for modern viewers to stomach the rampant sexual harassment and manipulation Daw must endure (one date actually tells her angrily that she “shouldn’t have eaten the hamburger” he foisted on her if she wasn’t willing to sleep with him later); and the endless clips of brainless beauties fumbling their lines simply adds insult to injury.
