In pure madcap fashion, Preston Sturges' wartime comedy depicts just how absurd the constraints on women are in a patriarchal society.

The Miracle of Morgan's Creek (1944)

Far from being a sermon, the movie is no bromide against girlish promiscuity, but a mature consideration of love found through 'unconventional' means.

The Lady Eve / Sullivan's Travels (1941/2001) - PopMatters Film Review )
