Product Description

This wonderful Pre-Code 1932 comedy B&W movie dvd release is titled... THREE BROADWAY GIRLS

aka THE GREEKS HAD A WORD FOR THEM

Director: Lowell Sherman

Runtime: 79 minutes

ZoŽ Akins' archetypal "gold-digger" stage comedy The Greeks Had a Word for It was transferred to the screen with the "It" changed to "Them" in the title, reportedly at the insistence of over-cautious producer Sam Goldwyn (this became a moot point in the 1940s, when the film was reissued as Three Broadway Girls).

Ina Claire, Madge Evans, and Joan Blondell star as ex-showgirls Jean, Polaire, and Schatze, who pool their resources to rent a luxurious penthouse apartment. Their strategy is as follows: if they live like millionaires, dress like millionaires and act like millionaires, they'll be able to attract wealthy boyfriends. The original play ended with all three girls continuing their gold-digging activities unto eternity, while the film concludes with one of the three finding true love in the arms of Dey Emery (David Manners).
