Trivia

The film was made in 1962 under the auspices of the ailing British Lion company, but it was shelved until early 1964, like several other films made by British Lion or its subsidiary, Bryanston Films. See more »

Goofs

Mrs. Higgins (Miriam Karlin) picks up a copy of the News of the World newspaper, indicating that it is a Sunday. However offices and shops are open, which would not have been the case in early 60s Britain. See more »

Quotes

[Mrs Cragg overhears James Ryder and Sidney Tait bemoaning the fact that a financial backer has pulled out of investing in their company and that they will need to borrow money at a crippling interest rate]
Mrs. Cragg: [to herself] I'd give them a quid out of my own pocket if only they'd stop walking over my nice clean floor.

Outstanding English comedy.
21 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this delightful movie in the late 60's. I do wish that the film industry in other countries, including the United States, could follow the English guidelines in creating a truly funny film. One of the many things that made this movie so funny and outstanding was the lack of four letter words and bedroom scenes. The producer and director of "Women Who Do" proved that four char ladies and their co-hart who play the stock market can create a delightful plot. Even though it has been so many years ago, when they took over the board room I had tears rolling down my face from laughing so hard. What do fans of English comedy,like this, do to get to see more movies like this? Or, what do we do to get to see this movie again? I truly loved every minute of this movie. Bettye Coleman
