ITEM#: 3618710Set in a 1930s Manhattan milieu of idle socialites and gossip, George Cukor's THE WOMEN is an opulent rendition of the Clare Boothe Luce play. While no men appear in the film, they are grist for the mill in the social circle of Mary Haines (Norma Shearer) and her catty clique of high-society wives. However, Mary's tidy world is turned upside down when she accidentally learns of her husband's philandering. Crystal Allen (Joan Crawford), a vicious vixen and ruthless gold digger, has set her sights on Mary's husband; Mary initially plays right into her hands, but soon, with the advice and support of comrades experienced in the art of woman-to-woman combat, Mary decides she won't give up without a fight. The tale's semiregressive premise has been criticized for this reason, yet this does not overshadow the host of exceptional performances and the range of complex relationships the film presents. As a fantasy of a women-only world of glamour, idle pleasures, and raw sexual competition, the film has enjoyed a cult following--owing, no doubt, in part to a hard-as-nails performance by Crawford that was credited with reviving her career.

EXCELLENT, films do NOT need billions of dollars of special effects to be entertaining.Read More
I only ordered this movie because Joan Crawford was in it. I had recently seen a special on Joan and wanted to see more of her early work. They mentioned this film in the special and although I had never heard of it, I sought it out. This movie, although slow at the start, had me hooked after about half an hour. The all star cast is wonderful as is the script, costumes and cinematography. A must see for any movie buff or student of film. A+Read More
