The Greeks Had a Word for Them (also known as Three Broadway Girls) is a 1932 pre-Code comedy based on the Zoe Akins play The Greeks Had A Word For It. It was directed by Lowell Sherman and starred Joan Blondell, Madge Evans, and Ina Claire. A generation later it would be one of the inspirations for the more famous How to Marry a Millionaire.
