Audience Reviews for The Greeks Had a Word for Them (Three Broadway Girls)

An interesting pre-code film that's all about its girls. Joan Blondell, Ina Claire, and Madge Evans all give excellent performances as three very different best friends. The film presents a very entertaining and interesting dynamic between its women, which is both playful and fiercely competitive. Lowell Sherman also gives a fine performance. The film does suffer from the technical problems of being a low budget early talkie, and at 79 minutes, it never feels like any of the ladies have the spotlight for as long as they deserve.
