The title of the movie says it all; it is not exactly the movie a modern day feminist would like to see; then again it stars some of greatest women of Hollywood. The main attraction of the movie are; Schatze Page (Lauren Bacall), Pola Debevoise (Marilyn Monroe), and Loco Dempsey (Betty Grable). This romantic comedy is set in Manhattan about three women who team up with an elaborate scheme to lure wealthy men with an intention to marry them. They rent a penthouse, sell the furniture that doesn't belong to them, and use the funds to support themselves. Schatze is the team leader who is smart and all brains; other two are ditsy blondes. Schatze has her eyes set on an elderly, charming and wealthy widower J.D. Hanley (William Powell), at the same time ignores the advances of a young man by the name of Tom Brookman (Cameron Mitchell) whom she thinks is a poor "gas pump jockey." The three ladies meet men of their dreams; the gold digger's plans go awry when the two blondes fall in love with men who are poor, and they desperately try to stop each other from marrying the wrong men. At the end the two blondes end up marrying these men in the name of love. Schatze hits the jackpot; when Hanley offers to marry her; she has a change of heart, and she finds that she will be marrying Tom who is not poor as she always suspected, but a millionaire. Lauren Bacall, Marilyn Monroe, and Betty Grable deliver the best performances of their careers as "desperate women," but Lauren Bacall is a clincher, and most impressive in the number one spot. This movie was directed by Jean Negulesco, who also directed movies such as, Johnny Belinda (1948), Best of Everything (1959), Titanic (1953), and The Rains of Ranchipur (1955). This movie was produced and written by Nunnally Johnson who wrote successful movies such as, The Dirty Dozen (1967), Mr. Hobbs Takes a Vacation (1962), and Jesse James (1939).
