Did You Know?
Dr. Granvilles electromechanical vibrator was portable but had a wet cell battery that weighed about 40 pounds.
What do you call that little thing? Mortimer Granville:
I was calling it the feather duster. Molly:
Well I'd think of something quick, so that a girl knows what to ask for.
Absolutely delightful film.
My absolute favourite film from this year's Tiff. I was laughing like a
crazy person but I was completely drowned out by the howling and
squealing of all the women in the audience. Special attention was given
to historical details and they all were masterfully done. The quality
of the cast is something I haven't seen in quite a while, the roles
were so much fun that many of the actors would have wanted to do this
for nothing or at least for scale. It was true genius that such
material was discussed and portrayed in such a manner as to be purely
enjoyable without risking even the slightest offence. Be sure to stay
for the very end and watch the antique devices as they appear on the
left side and then the right side of the credits. The entire audience
was still fixated on the screen as if in a champion tennis match until
the lights came up and we applauded some more.
