I also watched The Women last night. While it was a good movie, I guess I couldn’t really get into it and see what the whole gay-icon-ism of the movie is. Also, I guess it’s annoying to see what passed for “black roles” in movies then. There was a line where a scheming jezebel is telling a married man that she’s going to cook for him after paying a black servant to go shopping and cook a meal at her apartment, and a co-worker walks by muttering, “She thinks just because Lucy’s dark, that he won’t be able to see her there.”
Ah well, it was still a cute story. I loved the fact that there were no men in the movie at all, on-screen, just over the phone, and the trainload of women going to Reno for easy divorces was clever.
