Movies of this time period were produced so people could escape the woes and worries of the Depression. Even though this seems to me a bit ironic as most of the people who were enjoying movies of this time were the more wealthy. It did give them a time to put the worries of the day on hold and let them enjoy a happier go lucky time. themes that you might anticipate from this would be "survival of the fittest" or a bit of jealousy from the two men in the box seats. With the leading lady, perhaps a bit of narcissistic tendencies as she flounced around the stage but in a humorous way.
