The Flirts

The Flirts, The Saturday Evening Post, July 26, 1941, oil on canvas, 34 ¼ x 27 ¼ in.

 

The Flirts emphasizes the pretensions of the glamour-girl type as she sits in her convertible pointedly ignoring two men in an adjacent truck. The encounter is brief and their social differences are obvious, but, as Steven Spielberg remarked, the men's glances are "totally innocent, completely moral," and "at the same time, just naughty enough" that you know the guys aren't "total squares."
