Reviews

Be careful what you say in private. It could become a movie. Some gossip overheard by Clare Boothe Luce in a nightclub powder room inspired her Broadway hit that's wittily adapted for the screen in The Women. George Cukor directs an all-female cast in this catty tale of battling and bonding that paints its claws Jungle Red and shreds the excesses of pampered Park Avenue princesses. Joan Crawford, Rosalind Russell, Joan Fontaine, Mary Boland and Paulette Goddard are among the array of husband snatchers, snitches and lovelorn ladies.

Format: DVD
The Women is a 1939 comedy film directed by George Cukor. The film was based on Clare Boothe Luce's play of the same name One of the great successes of its day, the film starred screen goddesses Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford, Rosalind Russell, Paulette Goddard, Joan Fontaine, Lucile Watson, Mary Boland, Marjorie Main, Virginia Grey, Phyllis Povah, Florence Nash, Ruth Hussey, Virginia Weidler, Butterfly McQueen, and Hedda Hopper.

The film continued the play's all-female tradition - the entire cast of more than 130 speaking roles was female. Set in the glamorous Manhattan apartments of high society evoked by Cedric Gibbons, and in Reno where they obtain their divorces, it presents an acidic commentary on the pampered lives and power struggles of various rich, bored wives and the other women that they come into contact with. Throughout the film, not a single male is seen -- although the males are much talked about, and the central theme is the women's relationships with them.

It is Hollywood entertainment at its best: great performances by the best actresses of the day, funny, sad and sarcastic. It is one of the great classic which one can watch and enjoy today. A new remake it is be released this year showing the attraction the story still holds.

Impossible to normally find a UK version of this 1939 classic. The seller I bought from also specialises in difficult to find titles.

Joan Crawford,in an early role,plays the b*tch in this film,as a man eating hussy who steals another woman's husband.Norma Shearer's character is a little too saccarine sweet but the other 'ladies'(term loosely used!)provide clever catty comments and acid observations. A comedy of NO manners.

This film is a perfect example of how Hollywood used to make great films. It is a classic that will most likely outlive the rather anodyne re-make of 2008.

So many famous actresses and some great comedic moments - what a set that must have been to work on. As a big fan of Rosalind Russell I watch the film for her performance but with the likes of Joan Crawford and Norma Shearer there is never a dull moment.

The dialogue is snappy and very quotable: "You're so slim I could kill you." "You don't have to, the diet I'm on is pure poison." Buy this DVD and soak up the golden era of Hollywood without any of those pesky men getting in the way!

This is a very good, very clever, bitter sweet "romantic comedy", made in 1939, a time when neither romantic comedies nor the political correctness existed. Below some more of my impressions, with some limited SPOILERS.

As you probably already know, this film is COMPLETELY devoided of men! Not even one man appears on the screen - EVER (even dogs and cats are all females)! And at 2 hours 13 minutes this is a long film... And yet, even if they are so conspicuosly absent, men are nevertheless extremely present...)))

The scenario of this film is an adaptation of a play and it is clearly visible - and this is one of the strongest points of this film, as it makes it completely focused on witty, clever, fast, brilliant and sometimes pretty cruel dialogs. Once again, this is a long film - but believe me, you will not see the time pass! All actresses perform at the top of their abilities and they are a pleasure to watch.

But the greatest treasure of this film is the absolute lack of political correctness (and it begins with the opening titles)! If anybody tried to make this film today, with the same dialogs and solutions, well, I think the feminist/politically correct crowd would probably lynch him/her and throw what is left to piranhas! And this is a MAJOR reason to buy, watch and keep this film.

Joan Crawford is a particular delight in this film, playing (what a surprise) an evil, black-hearted gold digger - but still, I appreciated very much that at the end she had the final word - well, kind of...))) Believe me, it is worthy to watch this long film to the very end even if you have to retain just the scene in which Joan Crawford has the final word...)))!

They both love this film and would watch it every day if they could.

I myself have seen it a couple of times and would recommend it to anyone, even men.

A classic film from the 30's

The snappy dialogue and vindictive put-downs of this star-studded feature makes for a comedy with interesting implications for those who think of pre-war america as prissy. By looking through this toned-down film version of a stage play, the viewer gets an impression of nuanced, earthy sexual politics that render the schmaltzy ending pure satire. This is a must-see for film fans and scholars alike.

A highly recommended film, It's funny, bitchy and although Crawford only has a total of around 27 minutes she uses them to her advantage. Crystal (played by Crawford) is used to getting what she wants by manipulating situations which would usually make the audience dislike her character but instead you find yourself routing for Crystal by the end. Definately one of Crawfords best films.
