GIRLS ABOUT TOWN
1931, Universal, 80 min, USA, Dir: George Cukor

With a lavish lifestyle untouched by the Depression, Kay Francis and Lilyan Tashman are New York party girls hired to escort businessmen Joel McCrea and Eugene Pallette, respectively. For the first couple, true romance could trump financial concerns - if a not-quite-divorced spouse cooperates. Cukor’s sure hand with the leads, cinematographer Ernest Haller’s nimble camerawork and a witty script by silent comedy star Raymond Griffith help make this pre-Code gem sparkle. With Louise Beavers.
