Goofs

In the garden at Bridget's home, Mary is next to a small statuette that holds a wreath and stands on a simple pedestal. In the next scene, the statuette's relationship to Mary has changed, the wreath is missing, and the pedestal more complex. In the third scene, the statuette has reverted to that in the first scene.

"When Ladies Meet" was a blast to watch
5 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie on TCM about a week ago, I had a blast. Ann Harding and Myrna Loy was excellent in this movie. Ann Harding may have stolen the show because she had the stronger role, I guess she was a bigger star than Myrna Loy at the time. Myrna Loy did a superb job with the role she was given by her MGM bosses. I never saw Myrna Loy cried in movie before, so she cried in this movie I was take aback, I said "Man she is good", she was very believable. I won't spoil it for you, but if you can get a copy, buy it. I am looking for one myself. Robert Montgomery proved to me that he is a fine comedian and a fine actor, because he more than held his own with the likes Ann Harding and Myrna Loy, but the stars of this movie are Ann Harding and Myrna Loy. This Movie is a Classic, I can't stop watching it.
