Golden Girls: The Women (1939)

The Women, a 1939 comedy/drama directed by the legend George Cukor, features 130 actors, of whom 120 have speaking parts. Of those 130 actors, exactly zero of them are men. 

There are, additionally, no photos of men, or paintings. All the animals (and there are many dogs and horses) are female. This alone is a remarkable accomplishment; I mention it here not because the lack of men is what matters in this movie, but because men are, truthfully, what The Women is all about. 

It's a strange affair, in that way, but luckily for everyone,The Women is also a tremendously enjoyable romp. Join Chris and Courtney as they unpack an hilarious comedy of cheating and divorce and back-stabbing gossip, with a dose of sultry Joan Crawford to boot.
