Film[edit]

I believe the film portion of the article should have it's own article. Anyone agree? Andrzejbanas (talk) 16:55, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

Sexist desciption of themes[edit]

It is presumed that a male lawyer is chosen to oversee the money of a woman. The two assumptions being that a woman solicitor was deliberately not chosen, and that a man would not have his inheritance tied up in a trust. Unless the book states that either are the case, the assumption of gender bias is just that, an assumption - which is itself sexist. In the 1930's there were very few female solicitors in London, or anywhere. It was normal, and remains normal, for large estates to be tied up in trusts till the beneficiary reaches a certain age. Irrespective of sex. The ploy of the book is thus not sexist, and quite normal. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.197.15.138 (talk) 01:20, 29 May 2011 (UTC)
