Always good for a laugh (about 4:00)
The difference is that Sally was shown doing what was a "man's job" (or at least a job that was dominated by men at the time) and was presumably making the same money as Buddy. Whereas Miss Brooks was a teacher, a job that was much lower-paying and commoplace for women to have. So the Sally character was more of a ground breaker in that regard.
A brassy, but classy, dame!
Saw Wait For Your Laugh tonight at Chicago's Facets art house. Very enjoyable film about an amazing life. Most interesting thing I learned from it was that Morey Amsterdam was her recommendation to Carl Reiner for the Dick Van Dyke show - he'd been writing material for her stage shows.
One part of the film really bugged me though - they had all these "reenactments" of her life, and they had rented a classic microphone - and used it wrong!
They had the actors speaking into the end!
