The Women (1939)

An astonishing cast are on top form in George Cukor’s wonderfully gossipy talkfest.

Film details


A joyously bitchy talkfest in which the gossip, complaints and gags centre mainly on (wholly unseen) men and their many foibles, The Women boasts an amazing cast: as well as Joan Crawford, Joan Fontaine, Ruth Hussey and Margaret Dumont are in there too.
