Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/WifeVsSecretary'': After UsefulNotes/TheHaysCode banhammer came down, MGM started toning down the unapologetic sluttiness of Creator/JeanHarlow's image from UsefulNotes/ThePreCodeEra. That's seen in this film where she plays Whitey, a more wholesome go-getting secretary and executive assistant. But Whitey's still a Sexy Secretary--too sexy, as far as her boss Van's wife Linda is concerned. And for that matter practically everyone else assumes incorrectly that Van has a thing going with his Sexy Secretary.

Not the same as the SassySecretary (although there is some overlap, especially in hard-boiled detective stories), this is a PA/Secretary etc. who is [[HelloNurse rather a sexpot]]. You may add office-related DoubleEntendre as you wish (heh heh, "dictation"). A traditional gag is for her horny boss to spend the workday figuratively or literally chasing her around his desk.

** Lane Pryce's male assistant (effectively a secretary) is considered absolutely heavenly by all of the younger American (female) secretaries. They particularly like his voice and accent, complete with the line about listening to him read the phone book.

** This is actually a recurring plot point--as Joan mentions in Season 4, it's not uncommon for men to hook up with and/or marry their secretaries. Roger Sterling does it early on, eventually marrying Don's secretary; Harry Crane gets ExiledToTheCouch for it; and Don himself had a fling with Allison and [[spoiler:ends up proposing to current secretary Megan by the end of Season 4]].

* Moneypenny from the ''Film/JamesBond'' movies (and all subsequent parodies of her). The original stories describe her with the adjective "desirable" through the series. There turns out to be a lot behind the secretary who inspired Ian Fleming, and the actress who played her for two decades [[http://www.macleans.ca/article.jsp?content=20071015_110172_110172&source=srch]].

* ComicBook/PepperPotts as played by Gwyneth Paltrow in ''Film/IronMan'', though she appears to be several levels of responsibility (and pay grades) higher than usual for the trope. Throughout the three films, she gradually ascends from being Tony's HyperCompetentSidekick to replacing him as head of his company (which he wasn't particularly good at doing himself due to being BrilliantButLazy and being a [[BigBadFriend questionable judge of character]], in addition to [[TripleShifter moonlighting as a jetsetting superhero]].)
