I think being filmed during the depression made a big impact on movies like this one. One theme of the movie is a lavish spectacle such as the beautiful dress and the men in tails and the beautiful arrangement of orchids . If this movie was pre code the dresses would have be more showy and a lot of skin would have been shown. Plus manners would have been more sexy and flirty. I have not watched this movie yet and I know I will enjoy it.
My all time favorite musical is Sound of Music. My grandmother took me to see it when I was a child and it started my love of musicals. I love the musicals from the 1950s and 1960s the most. I am looking forward to learning about the older musicals.
