WHEN LADIES MEET (1941)

Joan Crawford is a novelist who's in love with her publisher even though he's married. She doesn't know the wife, so when her friend Jimmy accidentally meets the publisher's wife and discovers she's a really sweet person he sets it up that Joan and the publisher's wife will also accidentally meet and become friends before realizing that they are both in love with the same scoundrel.

Good performances, but it's just way too long and sappy. Not to mention predictable. One highlight for me was Greer Garson. She was beautiful, very charming and she wore some great dresses. Overall, it was an entertaining film, but if you haven't already seen 1939's THE WOMEN I say check that one out first. It's a superior film all around.
