Tired Old Queen at the Movies: The Women


Steve Hayes reviews the 1939 comedy, a favorite of your Head Trucker's:
Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford and Roz Russell lead a bevy of MGM beauties in George Cukor's comedy classic The Women. Based on a play by Claire Booth Luce, with a screenplay by Anita Loos, it also stars Paulette Goddard, Joan Fontaine, Marjorie Main, the delightful Mary Boland and an all female cast who deliver some of the wittiest dialogue of the golden age of screen comedies. Gorgeously shot in the MGM tradition, with outrageous costumes by Adrian and a color fashion show that will knock your eyes out, it's a hysterical, bitchy glam fest you don't want to miss!

Today's Quotes



I. Editorial in the Guardian, speaking of Pope Francis:
When he went to Auschwitz, he showed what he believes religions are really about. He had no words. What was done there went beyond politics: it was an attempt to annihilate all meaning from humanity. In the face of that horror, he prayed in silence, and he asked “for the gift of tears” for himself. That is sometimes the greatest eloquence.





II.  Ghazala Khan, writing in the Washington Post:
Donald Trump has asked why I did not speak at the Democratic convention. He said he would like to hear from me. Here is my answer to Donald Trump: Because without saying a thing, all the world, all America, felt my pain. I am a Gold Star mother. Whoever saw me felt me in their heart. . . .

Donald Trump said he has made a lot of sacrifices. He doesn’t know what the word sacrifice means.
