The play was made into a 1939 film directed by Creator/GeorgeCukor, with an AllStarCast of actresses that included Norma Shearer, Creator/JoanCrawford, Rosalind Russell, Paulette Goddard, and a young Creator/JoanFontaine in one of her first big roles.. (As a matter of fact, in the movie there are no males of ANY species. The dogs are all bitches and the horses are all mares.) One, titled ''The Opposite Sex,'' was released in 1956 and actually featured men; the other, also titled ''The Women'' and featuring an all-female cast[[note]]With the exception of a scene at the end where one character has a newborn baby boy.[[/note]], came out in 2008.

* TheGhost: All the men.men, but especially Stephen. To get across Stephen's confrontation with Mary, the maid describes the conversation to the cook.



* GoodSmokingEvilSmoking: The movie has Crystal lighting up whenever she's being really evil, like when she's being catty to Mary or when she's flirting with an old boyfriend on the phone after marrying Stephen.



* WithFriendsLikeThese: Sylvia is gleeful over the Haines' marriage troubles, sets Mary up for an appointment with the manicurist to have her hear the rumor of Stephen's affair, and eggs Mary on to confront Crystal and then divorce him rather than reconcile.

* SavedFromDevelopmentHell: The 2008 remake, which was first pitched by director and writer Diane English (the creator of ''Series/MurphyBrown'') in 1993.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: According to Diane English on a DVD making of documentary for the 2008 remake, she originally pitched it with both Creator/MegRyan and Creator/JuliaRoberts agreeing to be not only in the lead roles, but also as co-producers, and Creator/JamesLBrooks as the director. Blythe Danner and Marisa Tomei would have co-starred, as would have Candice Bergen and Debi Mazar (who remained in the final cut). The project went into DevelopmentHell after Roberts and Ryan declared they both wanted to play the same role at the first table reading. Brooks left to work on Film/AsGoodAsItGets, and Roberts declared she was no longer interested and also dropped out. Other actresses that expressed interest included Creator/SandraBullock, Ashley Judd, Uma Thurman, Music/WhitneyHouston and Queen Latifah. She also declared she wanted the script to have strong and self-reliant female characters.
** There was also a remake planned in the 1970s, and it would have possibly featured men. For some reason it was cancelled.
