so controversial!

Movies Silently

Ladies! Do you realize that by bobbing your hair you are suggesting that you are a man’s intellectual equal? Gracious! How could such a calamity come upon us? (Fans self) Next thing you know, women will be going to college and becoming doctors and lawyers!

Curse you, barbers!

This 1924 article from Photoplay gives the skinny on the scandalous cutting of a woman’s crowning glory. I particularly enjoyed what the stars had to say about the matter. (If it was really them, that is.)
