  •  Well, for 50s scifi it was kinky. :) And about the (0+ / 0-)

    secretary, she was rather independent and responsible, not totally unlike Ripley (believe it or not). She not only was for 50s scifi sexually "proactive' in that scene, but apparently could hold her liquor like Indiana Jones' girlfriend in Raiders of the Lost Ark (drinking our hero under the table before the movie's onset in a South Seas area, and teasingly leaving a note on him for others to read- including his crew).  :)

    Oh, and wasn't there at least one female scientist at the station?

    •  It wasn't kinky. I've seen plenty of 50's movies (0+ / 0-)

      where this kind of thing was done.

      In those days--and I grew up in those days-- "playful" was not automatically "kinky" if it was between a man and a woman.  The implication was that a big strong guy had--sort of-- been bested by a girl. No wholesale implication of doms and subs and bondage and whips.

      It was cute.  Very slightly naughty. But mostly cute.

      Freedom has two enemies: Those who want to control everyone around them...and those who feel no need to control themselves.
