Camera: Robert Planck. Producers: Robert Z. It's a glossy MGM star vehicle film for both Crawford and Greer, who give sharp performances besides looking so appealing. Which, I suppose, we all do, though not all of us are sanctimonious as to put our presumed amazingness into self-authored books. No Score Yet. When Ladies Meet (1941)
I think the earlier version plays better, because the characters come across human with both strengths and weaknesses that you can relate to whereas the remake seems cariacatured is that word?
And, yes, we can say that caricatured is a word. In fact, that fits a lot of remakes….
When Ladies Meet
One of those films I always watch when it comes on. I when ladies meet movie find Alice Brady annoying, but not in this. She balances well her goofiness with a bit of naive wisdom.

And that fact is eminently proved by the Capitol's latest tenant, "When Ladies Meet," which hangs on grimly and desperately for a couple of fairly amusing reels and then expires pitifully and painfully in a smother of pompous words.
No, not Mars; Venus, say. In brief, the whole thing is resolved in a wordy heart-to-heart between the two girls, after which, for reasons very vague, the novelist goes back to the newspaper chap. And that is all there is. Literally, the bulk of the action when ladies meet movie of people walking from room to room in a Sutton Place apartment and a renovated Connecticut house, walking, stopping, then walking, and talking all the time.
It might just as well have been played in an interior decorator's window. In this loquacious trifle, Joan Crawford when ladies meet movie the lady novelist with impressive but unaffecting intensity, robed in the most spectacular gowns.
