George Cukor directs an all-female cast in this wonderfully sharp dialogue tale of the catty battling and bonding that paints its claws “Jungle Red” and shreds the excesses of pampered Park Avenue princesses. Joan Crawford, Rosalind Russell, Joan Fontaine, Mary Boland, and Paulette Goddard are among the array of husband snatchers, snitches and lovelorn ladies. Norma Shearer is jilted Mary Haines, who ultimately learns to claw without ruining her manicure.
Director: George Cukor
