It really was  quite a cast and not a man in sight !  But MGM knew THE WOMEN would be a hit, with all that  star power.

 

 

M

SUITABLE ONLY FOR ADULTS!

 

 

M

Joan Crawford gets top billing in this poster.

 

 

M

Joan Fontaine, second billing? Really!

 

M

That gloriously funny fight is featured in this poster.

 

M

If only  the whole film, not just the fashion show sequence, had been in color, it deserved it.

 

M

Dennie Moore, Rosalind Russell in the scene that kick starts the plot – gossip passed on to the wrong person.

 

M

That fight. Roz Russell gets soundly beaten by Paulette Goddard. Norma Shearer and Joan Fontaine are shocked. Everyone had a ball!

 

M

Mary Boland can’t resist a smile.

M

Girls’ night out. You’re surrounded,Joan.

 

M

The confrontation.

The bad girl usually has the juicier part.Joan wins,hands down.

Cant see Norma ever playing a part like Crystal.

And my favorite is Rosalind Russell. How she grabbed this part and proved what a fine comedienne she was.

M

The designer, Adrian with Rosalind Russell.

M

Adrian created some startling costumes for Rosalind.

M

The eyes have it!

M

You  can’t get away from her. She’s all around !

 

M

On the set with George Cukor, Roz Russell and Hedda Hopper.

 

M

She’s looking for the other woman.

 

M

And she finds her, behind the perfume counter. Sylvia Fowler (Rosalind ) isnt  subtle. Crystal (Joan) realises what she is up to. – “Mrs. Prowler”.

 

M

But all’s well that ends well.
