Synopsis

The second of our two Joan Crawford titles for September, THE WOMEN is a 1939 comedy classic, featuring a stellar all-female cast.


Mary Haines (Norma Shearer) can't believe her husband's having an affair with salesgirl Crystal (Joan Crawford). But when Sylvia (Rosalind Russell) and Edith (Phyllis Povah) deliver the gossip firsthand, Mary heads to Reno for a divorce. En route she meets Countess de Lave (Mary Boland) and Miriam (Paulette Goddard), who coincidentally is having an affair with Sylvia's husband. Once in Reno, the Countess finds another beau, Sylvia shows up for a divorce and Mary plots to win back her man.


This screening is part of Scalarama, a nationwide celebration of cinema which takes place throughout September.
