I am watching ALL ABOUT EVE on TCM now. In the beginning, Celeste Holm gets out of a taxi in front of the theater where Eve is (Spoiler) fangirl-stalking Margo - BTW, I wonder if the theater with the fake okay Margo is in was a real B'Way theater the film took over - Perhaps when dark? - to set up the film's situation. - Anyway, Celeste is wearing a full-length fur coat (Mink?). She is of course the unemployed wife of a highly successful man and presumably can afford it. But...since the wearing of fur coats (especially aside from " for warmth " outdoor coats) as a status/showing out item has come to be somewhat disapproved if in some quarters...(I am not looking to spark a discussion as to whether this is good or bad. Okay???) This is a sign of things changing in (nearly) 70 years! Any other examples of this you care to bring up? For another example, Eve receiving a long-distance phone call from California from her man is a very big production!
