THREE WISE GIRLS
1932, Sony Repertory, 68 min, USA, Dir: William Beaudine

Jean Harlow, Mae Clarke and Marie Prevost are the wise girls of the title in this pre-Code look at life and love in New York City. When small-town soda jerk Cassie (Harlow) arrives in Manhattan, she catches the eye of a wealthy - but married - man (Walter Byron), and her two friends are of differing opinions on whether Cassie should pursue the affair. Robert Riskin provided the dialogue here, and Andy Devine makes a brief but memorable appearance as a chauffeur.
