The gender politics are unfortunately old-fashioned, but the general politics are refreshingly old-fashioned, a sort of left-wing, inclusive and progressive populism . . . In Quine’s own oeuvre It Happened to Jane has a partner in The Solid Gold Cadillac (1956) with Judy Holliday and Paul Douglas, another comedy about a woman battling a big corporation. But good as it is, it lacks the community and location of It Happened to Jane.
