Gold-diggers Kay Francis and Lilyan Tashman meet susceptible lonely businessmen at conventions in this ribald preproduction code story. The millionaires lavish the girls with expensive gifts. Francis falls for poor but virtuous Joel McCrea. Eugene Paulette is a copper king who gives Tashman jewelry. His wife reacts not with jealously but by trying to imitate her rival's style. Written by
"Girls About Town" remains one of my top 10 favorite movies. The movie is about 2 gold-diggers who "entertain" men for, well, "gold", so to speak, and it is fast-paced, daringly risque, and funny. Kay Francis, one of the great dramatic actresses, handles her part of a lovestruck woman beautifully, while Lilyan Tashman wonderfully takes over the comedic, wisecracking lines and, IMHO, is Lilyan's greatest performance. I saw this film at the Film Forum this summer, and it was a big hit with the audience. I would love to see it again, if anyone knows where I could obtain a copy, please contact me
