While there are no men in The Women, director George Cukor's classic Hollywood comedy-melodrama with an all-female cast, they are the subject of every conversation. Marriage, affairs and divorce animate the lives of a group of rich, well-heeled and super-smart ladies, who fight for their men with barbed wit, rather than tooth and claw. You could think of it as a Sex and the City for the 1930s, but with sharper gags and better clothes. Cukor was renowned as a great director of women, so much so that it was rumoured he was muscled off his previous job on the epic Gone with the Wind because that film's male lead Clark Gable thought his co-star Vivien Leigh was going to get all the attention. The Women's cast includes almost every big name of the era from Joan Crawford to Norma Shearer and Joan Fontaine. Glamour incarnate.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
