About the Movie
In the eternal battle between the sexes, one side holds an overwhelming advantage: Armed with razor-sharp wit and wielding gossip as a weapon, victory can only go to The Women. Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford and Rosalind Russell enter the skirmish as Mary Haines, Crystal Allen and Sylvia Fowler--whose battlegrounds are the beauty parlor and fashion-show runway. The engagement begins when Mary's husband takes up with shop girl Crystal, and scandalmonger Sylvia gives Mary advice that quickly results in divorce--but that is only the opening salvo in this cracklingly sharp, classic comedy.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford and Rosalind Russell are a few among many of those purring, silken, clawing females so cleverly and mercilessly fashioned.
Fresh: The catty banter and Wildean aphorisms (some of them contributed by Anita Loos) are delivered with impeccable timing by a cast only MGM could have mustered.
Fresh: [Cukor is] at his best with a cast that includes Rosalind Russell, Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford, Hedda Hopper, Ruth Hussey, Paulette Goddard, and Joan Fontaine.
Fresh: A film that deserves to be seen (or seen again).
I love old movies this is a classic
