samskivert: Adam’s Rib (3)

22 March 2008

Nothing like some jovial legal humor from 1949. To its credit, I don’t recall ever seeing a film from that period that so directly tackled women’s rights. My intuition is that this quote captured the general consensus of the time:

Hepburn: Do you believe that women should be treated equally in matters of the law?
Potential Juror: I should say not!
