Directing ensemble scenes with upwards of half a dozen divas is no easy feat - leave it to Cukor to corral this kind of star power into a two hour-plus film that never takes a break to powder its nose.

A film that deserves to be seen (or seen again).

The catty banter and Wildean aphorisms (some of them contributed by Anita Loos) are delivered with impeccable timing by a cast only MGM could have mustered.

[Cukor is] at his best with a cast that includes Rosalind Russell, Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford, Hedda Hopper, Ruth Hussey, Paulette Goddard, and Joan Fontaine.

A more eccentric film than the following year's The Philadelphia Story, with which it shares a couple of faces, it's almost as fabulous.
