Art-directed by Hobe Erwin and Fredric Hope, the 1933 film featured Jean Harlow as newly moneyed Kitty Packard. Depression-era audiences embraced the extravagance of Déco sets, such as Harlow’s lavish dressing room with a fringed vanity and stool.

Art director Cedric Gibbons’s sets captured the Moderne glamour of the 1920s and ’30s in films such as The Single Standard (1929), starring Greta Garbo. One of the first to abandon painted backdrops, Gibbons created a vast space for Garbo’s character’s sleek grand salon.

Nice shot of the kitchen showing the wood stove, sink, hot water heater (?) and Hoosier cabinet. The sets are a quite accurate depiction of an upper middle class home of the time.
