  1. The opening evokes the documentary style common to the day. I wouldn't have noticed the diagonality unless you had brought it to my attention. This must have been shot from an airplane, because there were no steady cams to smooth a helicopter's shot. What seems like casual aerial photography must have been carefully planned to get the diagonality of the shots to match when edited together. I wonder how much this film influenced Harvest of Shame: Edward R. murrow's last documentary for CBS shows on thanksgiving of 1960? www.imdb.com/title/tt0322505/ [...]
  2. Through my 21st century jaded eyes, this seemed pretty tame. I'm trying to imagine what it would have been like to see Rita Hayworth do this on the big screen in 1946. It must have been quite risqué at the time, even though she does more teasing than stripping. Glen Ford's slap, on the other hand, would be intolerable by today's standards. In 1946, I suspect the audience deemed it appropriate.
