When Ladies Meet (1941): Joan Crawford and Greer Grason, and Robert Taylor Star in Remake of Pre-Code Melodrama

In one of her last MGM movies, Robert Z. Leonard’s When Ladies Meet, Joan Crawford stars in a remake of a 1933 pre-Code picture of the same name, which had starred Ann Harding, Myrna Loy and Spring Byington.

In the new version, the original roles are played by Greer Garson, Joan Crawford and Spring Byington.

Both films are based on a Rachel Crothers play, adapted to the screen by Anita Loos and S. K. Lauren, about a novelist (Crawford), who falls in love with a married publisher.

The novelist meets the publisher’s wife (Garson) at the home of a society matron (Byington).

The film earned yet another Oscar nomination for MGM art director Cedric Gibbons and Randall Duell.

The title of the film changed into “Ladies Skirts,” when it was shown on TV.

Running time: 105 Minutes.
