suicide

There is an implied suicide attempt by a store owner after learning of his wife's apparent infidelity. A young man finds him, and there is the sound of a struggle and a gunshot off-screen. However, the character returns to health and is unharmed.


There are occasional very mild sex references and innuendo, such as the implication a man's wife is having an affair, and a man suggesting he got very little sleep the night before as he was on a date. There are scenes in which characters smoke cigarettes or cigars, reflecting the period in which the film was made and set. There is infrequent very mild violence, such as a man pushing another man against a shelving unit.
