This book notes that contradiction and paradox characterize both 1950s comedies and how film studios responded to them. The author demonstrates that these films actually deal with conflicts between sexuality, gender politics, the rise of consumerism, ideology of success and suburban domesticity and demonstrate the growing autonomy and equality of women from the screwball comedies of the 1930' and '40s.
