A great film tribute to two amazing actresses
27 April 2006 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

I find the previous reviewer's comment about Greer and Davis' fans insulting. Every actor has their own way of acting.

Garson did an outstanding job in this film. Here MGM's big female stars (the older of the famous stars) are set to play opposite each other. One fighting to get the man, while the other fights to keep him. It is an amazing transition film, foreshadowing Crawford's replacement by Garson in a smooth and flattering setting to both of their incredible skills.

You can't compare their acting styles to each other when they are so different. "When Ladies Meet" is a showcase for both of their styles and they compliment each other.

This is a classic. I only wish they would put it out on DVD.
