Amazon.com's review of "The Women": George Cukor, Hollywood's legendary "woman's director," had his hands full with the all-female cast of this 1939 film adaptation of the Clare Boothe play. The story finds a group of catty, competitive friends destroying reputations at social gatherings. (Add picture)

I never get tired of watching this movie. Utterly fascinating to see how women haven;t changed that much over the decades. Georgous costumes, funny dialogue, sheer delight to immerse yourself in this movie.

The Women is a "Shearer" delight. A wonderful story all about men, without a single man in the film! Rivals Joan Crawford ( who is the best character in this film, bar none ) and Norma Sheerer, ( who is a bit annoying, as she is very naive ) star in one of thee best comedies in classic film history. It's interesting to see these two ladies work together, as Joan's first movie role was to play Norma's stand in, in an early film. Norma treated Joan as though she should be graetful she even had a part in her film. Norma was a big star then, and apparently had quite a big head as well. Its funny that Joan should replace her, in just a few years, as MGM's biggest box office draw. Wonder what Norma thought then? Anyways, to get back to the point, the Women is a wonderfully witty, well acted, 1930's film~

"The Women" reeks of caricature and female bashing (the author of the stage play on which it is based was Clare Booth Luce) and is very funny and highly enteraining. Come to think of it, men aren't portrayed too well either. The gimmick is there are no men in the cast, just mentioned constanly by all the female characters. Joan Crawford and Paulette Goddard do real well...but Norma Shearer plays such a self sacrificing noble goody two shooes wimp per most of the film that you just want to smack her across the head.. Mary Boland IMO steals the movie as the Countess.

Highly entertaining with snappy dialogue, gorgeous 30's costumes, and a most talented group of actresses make this a film treasure.
