The Women – DVD


This is from 1939 with a fabulous cast: Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford, Rosalind Russell, Paulette Goddard, Joan Fontaine, Hedda Hopper, Butterfly McQueen AND Marjorie Main of Ma & Pa Kettle fame (most of you are way to young to have seen any of those).

The story is about marriage, gossip, affairs, divorce, cattiness and competition, adapted from a play by Clare Boothe and directed by George Cukor. The clothes are classic, the acting outlandish, the outdoor scenery fake. Really great slapstick. I loved it.
