Johanna said:
The main female characters, although substantial roles, are accessories to the men and don't interact with each other -- Herb Stempel's wife, Dick Goodwin's wife, Charles Van Doren's mother. (In that way, it reflects the 1950s time setting.) There's at least one scene where other women speak to each other, but it's about what a dreamboat Charles is.
