The ‘Beautiful Girls’ episode of ‘Mad Men’ is creator Matthew Weiner’s tribute to women -- from little Sally Draper running off to the city all by herself, to Don Draper’s relationship with Dr. Faye Miller, to his elderly secretary Miss Blankenship. Poor Miss Blankenship. She died how she lived, answering phones for the people she worked for. Yet, oddly, it was her rather comedic demise, Weiner says, and her remembrances by Bert Cooper, that made up the ‘emotional core’ of the episode. See what else Weiner had to say at the Envelope Emmy Week screening on Tuesday night. And check back in for more clips to come.
