Comments about Women, The (BD):

Never before had so many high profile actresses of their generation ever been assembled in an ensemble cast list to die for. Shearer, Crawford, Russell, Goddard, Fontaine, etc., and that's for starters. In a way, this film based on the play by Clare Boothe Luce and written for the screen by Anita Loos (San Francisco), became the perfect starring vehicle for Shearer and Russell (already established stars) but a launching pad for actresses Crawford and Fontaine. The fact that the men in "The Women's" lives are only mentioned, never seen, matters not one wit to the plot…and, brother…does the plot ever thicken. Especially when the principle character Mary Stephen Hanes (Shearer) matches wits, and, feminine wiles, with shop girl Crystal Allen (Crawford, in a breakthrough role) who threatens to steal Shearer's man right out from under her, and nearly succeeds, until Shearer decides to grow cat claws of her own…"jungle red" in fact! Long regarded as the ideal "woman's director" in Hollywood, George Cukor's subtle touch in the handling of this abundance of talent is evidenced everywhere in this prestige production of old Hollywood and MGM. Now that the film is available in Blu-ray should making owning this classic a must for the more discriminating sophisticated film buff.
