“I treated her like a pair of gloves. When I was cold, I called her up.”
Noir Quote from The Big Combo (1955), spoken by Cornel Wilde. This quote is a classic example of the misogyny that pervades the noir genre. A woman is an object that only has utility when needed. Also, there are heavy sexual connotations here that lend to the idea that a woman is only worth her ability to physically gratifying the male that desires her. Two short sentences, volumes of meaning. (Special thanks to fuzionbits.com)
