blanche friderici

THE OFFICE WIFE

Like many a Pre-Code Lesbian before (and after) her, Blanche Friderici’s character loves two things: suits and cigars.  Well, there’s also a third thing she clearly loves, but there’s a zero percent chance they’d get into that here.  She offers her cigar to a man, who emphatically refuses it, so that’s probably a metaphor for something.  Then she disappears for most of the movie so that’s probably a metaphor for something else.
