Margie (1946): The Roaring 20's, High School Style
Margie (1946) Hard to find. A remarkably satisfying and funny chick-flick from back in the day, about a awkward nerdy teenage girl. She lives with her ex-sufferagette granny who keeps chains slung around the mantlepiece as a conversation piece. She is passionate about debate club. Her underpants have bad elastic and are always falling down around her ankles at the worst times. But the best part, in the end she totally gets the guy. Who is her French teacher. But that was cool back then.
