If you haven't seen "The Women," do yourself a favor and see it any way you can - I checked out the video from my local library. I've never been a Norma Shearer fan, but she's good here...however, the movie belongs, in my humble opinion, to Paulette Goddard, Mary Boland, and, of course, Rosalind Russell. The catfight between Goddard and Russell is, by itself, worth the price of the video or DVD. So is Marjorie Main's brief part. Boland is hilarious. Goddard is delicious. Crawford is great in her part. Shearer, in keeping with the times, is a bit stilted in her role, but she plays it well, anyway. The dialogue is fast and kicky and great fun. The clothes are beautiful. They just don't make movies like this anymore!!!
