Trivia

The poetry that Mary and Rogers quote is from "Madrigales" by John Wilbye (1574-1638): "There is a jewel which no Indian mines can buy, / No chymic art can counterfeit; / It makes men rich in greatest poverty, / Makes water wine; turns wooden cups to gold." See more »

No Ladies I Know Behave This Way....
23 October 2001 | by KeedeeSee all my reviews

...but perhaps I don't know a lot of true ladies. I'm more shocked that Joan Crawford got top billing in this delightful little farce. Greer Garson stole the show and Robert Taylor's role was dashing and quite likeable. Spring Byington played the perfect hostess for the weekend "Dish of the Dames". The truly unbelievable thing was the casting of Herbert Marshall as Rogers Woodruff. Hard to imagine one woman, let alone two having such rapturous feelings for that character. Perhaps there's the reality in this story. After all, these things are rarely understood. I found, in this case, "When Ladies Meet", to be quite entertaining and being a die-hard Greer Garson fan, I highly recommend it!!
