Poor old Vera - she only has two modes: authoritarian bitch and pathetic submissive. In this scene she hurtles from mode 2 to mode 1 to mode 2 again. All dressed up and loaded on dutch courage, she's released her hair from the prison-regulation bun and tried to go for the Farrah Fawcett look. However, she's realised that 70s night-life isn't all stomping at the Savoy and coming on down to Studio 54. Instead it involves being ignored at a bar while you are simultaneously lit with red and green lights so you look like you're in a Vincent Price film. Here's a secret. Vera was always my favourite. I have a LOT of time for her.
