“Mad Men” doesn’t capture one single thing about the décor, costumes, or sexual interaction [of the ’60s]. It is a total projection of contemporary snarky attitudes into the past. If you want to see what women were actually like in that period of sexual repression, just put in a DVD of “Psycho” and watch the phenomenal Janet Leigh as a secretary in a Phoenix office at the start. That is it!
