The Women (1939)

Post by Kitty » Sun Apr 16, 2017 11:42 pm

This was a great movie! I just watched it, and I'd definitely recommend this one. One interesting thing about it is that not one man is cast in the film. Oh, men are talked about.... A LOT.... but not one appears in the film. This MGM film is very adult for a movie from 1939, which, if you remember, was the year The Wizard of Oz came out. There is also a color sequence that is beautiful. It's funny and interesting all the way through.

I watched the trailer on YouTube—looks like a very entertaining film! It has some great stars—I think that's the first time I've seen Norma Shearer in a talkie role.

Me, too, and isn't it funny that she looks no different in this than her silents?? She's great in this. Actually they all are.... If you catch it on TCM make sure you watch it!
