Girls About Town
(1931) Directed by George Cukor. Kay Francis, Lilyan Tashman, Joel McCrea. (80 min.) 35mm print from Universal Archive.
Two good-hearted, gold-digging “party girls” exploit their rich escorts with a clear conscience. Teaming up with a wronged wife for some sweet revenge proves sisterhood is powerful. This risqué pre-Code comedy was a favorite at the last TCM Film Festival.
“Under George Cukor’s direction (this was only the second film he directed on his own) their adventures are more elegant than lewd” (tcm.com).
Introduced by Laura Boyes.
