“Never takes a break to powder its nose.”
—Little White Lies
“We don’t know when we’ve ever seen such a terrible collection of women. They’re really appallingly good, and so is their picture.”
—The New York Times (1939)
The title says it all. There are more than 100 speaking roles in this George Cukor dramedy and every single one is played by women. Norma Shearer is brilliant as the woman who finds out her husband is cheating and starts the events of the film in motion. With Joan Crawford, Rosalind Russell, Joan Fontaine, and a never-better Paulette Goddard.
