the depression...from the viewpoint of the haves...(This Modern Age)  Animated GIF

and from the view of the have-nots (The Grapes of Wrath)                   Animated GIF

 

consistently tipsy is chic in The Thin Man                                                 Animated GIF

but anything but glamourous in The Lost Weekend                                 Animated GIF

It's a totally male viewpoint in A Guide For the Married Man--every pretty young woman is eager to have an affair with a middle age man.                                                             ..Animated GIF
