“Behind every great man is a great woman.” When it comes to the great director George Cukor, there were many a woman behind him, but never as many as when he directed the 1939 classic “The Women.”
“The Women” could easily be the inspiration for any of the widely popular “Housewives" shows, except these housewives are bona fide Hollywood legends. Starring Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford, and Rosalind Russell, “The Women” follow the ups and downs and crazy antics of women in love, in lust, and in life.
