“I always thought that one-night stands would result in that hollow feeling, like a book whose contents have been carved out to make room for the storage of secret items. That was not the case. Sleeping with him, rather, was my Great Liberation, like a young woman in 1920s America revolting against the erotic suppression of her sex.

Watched another Barbara Stanwyck flick recently - Double Indemnity.  She’s got such gumption; I love her.
