The man that exudes restraint and dignity faced with others all day might be just as likely to let off a little steam in the evening at home with a few scotch's and some verbal or physical abuse of his own wife.
Even a woman who exudes grace and restraint in face of others may be taking such abuse at home and accepting it as justified and part of being a wife (or perhaps even her fault for not cooking a good enough dinner, or wearing a better lipstick) -even if she makes it clear to her entourage that the same sort of treatment will not be tolerated by anyone other than her own mate.
As another pointed out, Hollywood was rough on actresses at that time, they were treated like objects owned by studios during their contracts and obligated to do whatever they were told, and that often included sexual services.
It was a mans world, for sure- all about the image, the object, that which is visible. But the unseen was not exposed or acknowledged, so we won't find much evidence of it in the media of that time.

Yep, class! Back then a woman didn't have to be almost anorexic and half naked to be beautiful. There was something left to the imagination.

We just need to live another 100 years and then we can have virtual reality and sex bots to live our life in any period or any girl we want!
Something about that period where the women seemed more sophisticated and mature than today.
something...I can't put my finger on.
