Sophisticated comedy: a trio of money hungry women who all have sugar daddies who keep them in the lap of luxury, even as they drive the men crazy. Each woman represents a different personality type, from sensitive, to kind-hearted, to difficult and untrustworthy. Set in the age of jazz, the twenties come roaring back with immorality and in-fighting. Written by
Adapted from a Broadway play by Zoe Akins, "The Greeks Had a Word for It". Since it dealt with a group of modern-day courtesans, the title was on the Hays Office banned list. Therefore, the last word in the title was changed to "Them". The original Broadway production opened at the Sam H. Harris Theater on September 25, 1930 Theater and ran for 253 performances.

Very modern comedy about gold-digging dames. Polaire is the sensitive one, Schatzi the nice one, and Jean is a complete bitch who screws her friends and their sugardaddies at every turn. Lots of teasing shots of girls in their slips, including a strip-search. Cut-throat jazz age immorality, lots of fun.
