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
In her December 1972 interview to Leonard Maltin in Film Fan Monthly, Madge gave the following testimony on the atmosphere on the set during filming: "That was a rather hectic picture, with him [i.e. Lowell Sherman] not taking the directing seriously, George Barnes falling madly in love with Joan [i.e. Joan Blondell] so he could hardly see anybody but Joan. Ina Claire was very much in love with John Gilbert (this was before they were married) and every time she got into a costume that she thought she looked well in, particularly the bridal costume at the end of the film, she disappeared from the lot, because she had driven off to Metro to show John Gilbert how enchanting she looked. I went into that film very quickly, because Carole Lombard was supposed to do the part I played, but she became ill, and I replaced her." See more »
Look, she doesn't have a man - you'd think she'd be afraid of catching cold.

Critics of 2007 do not share same thoughts as those of 1932
I read with interest the comments of the critic for "Three Broadway Girls." Then I saw the movie. I must say that in accordance with the critic's 2007 standards, he was quite correct in his analysis. However, I am now 80 years old and remember the pictures in those days fairly well. I would say that the critic must be in his 30's or 40's for he evaluates the content and acting with those skills of 2007. If he were a critic in 1932 or the 30's for that matter, I think he would find this a 'charming' bit of humorous story telling. I would offer that those who criticize motion pictures should take into account the era in which they were made, and NOT evaluate them with the 2007 era standards.
