  1. The clip does exhibit a brighter perspective of life, from the cheerful and naive doorman to Ziegfeld's extravanagance, first at giving a very large tip to the costly bouquet of flowers he sends to Held. Then there is Held's whimsical attitude and playful performance. Even how she considers the beauty of the flowers more important than a potential business offer is almost wreckless during a time of strict frugality. These would all contribute to an escape from the harshness of the audience's lives. The costume choice for Held in this scene is very striking with her large comical bonnet, the frills on the dress and the foot long train. A precode film would have had a more revealing costume and perhaps even a musical number with more romantic appeal.
