Rona Jaffe’s bestseller became a decade-capping marker in the onscreen depiction of women making careers in NYC, couched in a luxe Jerry Wald production that garnered Oscar nominations for its costume design and title song. A storied midtown publishing house has a portfolio of issues, as secretaries/roommates Hope Lange, Diane Baker, and Suzy Parker weigh upward mobility vs. settling down. With Joan Crawford and future mogul Robert Evans.
