Growing up in our triple Decker in East Boston, all three kitchens were pristine Italian white. I've always been very partial to them due to childhood memories.
American Gas Assocaition Kitchen 1945
American Gas Assocaition Kitchen 1946
Of the two I think I prefer the 1946 kitchen with its muted rose and blue tones. And it does seem to be lacking evidence of a child, hence no thumb prints. Although the 1945 kitchen does seem to get better light and offer a more formal garden view. In either case dig those stoves!!!!

But it just sounds better in German...
A few of the key phrases:
"Now that she's married, any woman who thinks she can rest on her laurels is wildly mistaken.
On the contrary, a man wants to be daily won anew! That's how we men are, that's what we're
used to, and that's how we want to have it."
"Baking creates joy! And here She has it better than Him. SHE MAY BAKE." [that's "may" as in "has permission to"]
"Better hurry now, Peter will be there soon and he could eat a horse."
"We all know, of course, that a woman has only two questions in her life:
1) What shall I wear today?
2) What shall I cook for dinner?
"The most important thing for him is the PUDDING."
"You know, men who like eating sweets are men of good character.
"Cake makes us men soft and manageable. That new dress can easily cost $100 more, no problem!"

From IMDB: "Domineering Harriet Craig holds more regard for her home and its possessions than she does for any person in her life. Among those she treats like household objects are her kind husband Walter, whom she has lied to about her inability to have children; her cousin Claire, whom she treats like a secretary; and her servants whom she treats like slaves."
For my money it's the role Joan lived. But Rosalind Russell actually breathes a little sympathy into the broken character in the end.
Which version do you all prefer?
