A marvellous all-female cast animates Cukor’s evergreen film about women voicing their opinions on men.
Dir George Cukor
With Joan Crawford, Norma Shearer, Rosalind Russell, Paulette Goddard
Adapted by Anita Loos and Jane Murfin from a play by Clare Boothe Luce, this boasts a splendid all-female cast playing a bunch of women gathered together who, perversely, spend most of their time thinking, speaking and scheming about the men they love, hate, desire or have just left. The sparkling, acerbic dialogue often targets male foibles; the result is a joyous celebration of womanhood.
