"When Ladies Meet" is a unique viewing experience on a number of different levels. The first being that it has preserved on film the passing of the MGM mantle from 1930's movie queen Joan Crawford to that of rising 1940's successor Greer Garson and secondly shows one of the few times in this period of film making where two top female stars are teamed together. The combination of Joan Crawford and Greer Garson is an arresting one and the real chemistry between them makes for great viewing in this remake of the 1933 film of the same title which starred Myrna Loy and Anne Harding.
Despite this film coming near the end of Joan Crawford's celebrated career at MGM she does very well in her performance and hold her own against the new sensation of Greer Garson with her very different acting style. Based on a play by Rachel Crothers and boasting a screenplay partly written by Anita Loos, "When Ladies Meet" is often too easily dismissed as a "woman's magazine type story' when in actual fact that is an unfair judgement for a film put together with great care and integrity. Certainly the screen play is on the wordy side but what it talks about in regard to personal pride and believing in one's own personal worth is just a valid today as it was back in 1941.
The story tells of Mary Howard (Crawford) who is a successful novelist with very advanced views (for 1941), on love, marriage and personal relationships. She has found herself in the dilemma of loving her publisher Rogers Woodruff (Herbert Marshall in another stiff performance)who of course is married already to Clare (Greer Garson) Joan herself is being pursued by Jimmy Lee (Robert Taylor in a standout comedy performance) who she puts up with because of his comic easygoing manner.

While "WHEN LADIES MEET" gave top biling to Joan Crawford and Robert Taylor, I was captured mostly by third-billed Greer Garson's performance. Robert Taylor gives a good, but mild comedic performance in the Melvyn Douglas mold. Joan Crawford's last great MGM role, "A Woman's Face," was made just prior to this film, and "When Ladies Meet" marked the beginning of her decline at MGM, the first of three "oh, Joan can make it work" films in which anyone could have starred. That's why Louis B. Mayer's new protege, Greer Garson, walked away with this film, which contributed to her becoming the top box-office draw of the 1940's. Greer Garson was a wonderful dramatic actress from the theatre, and after the continental works of "Goodbye Mr. Chips" and "Pride And Prejudice," this film gave audiences a good chance to see the lighter side of Garson's talents. This comedy gave balance to her list of films, and she would win the Academy award for Best Actress the next year for the WWII drama, "MRS. MINIVER," which also won for Best Picture.
The plot is a twist on the drawing-room love-triangle premise, only with 4 people instead of 3. Robert Taylor has a thing for author Joan Crawford. Crawford has a thing for publisher Herbert Marshall. Marshall has a thing for both Crawford and wife Greer Garson. When invited to Crawford's country house to work on business, Marshall is torn. Meanwhile, Garson gets tangled up platonically with suave Taylor. She agrees to help make his "girl" jealous, and she rides with him to Crawford's house.

"When Ladies Meet" is one of Joan's better pictures later into her MGM career. Although it has somewhat of a similar plot to "The Woman" (if you're a Joan Crawford fan I don't need to tell you that she loved making several movies with the same themes) it also stands alone and is able to capture the viewer while carving out its own identity.

Unfortunately the film did poorly at the box office and Joan who was always a consummate perfectionist was never happy with "When Ladies Meet". This DVD is a no-frills, straight-transfer that Warner Bros. released this year under their "Archive Collection" branding. However, you can also find it on TCM as it's shown at least a few times a year. And there also is a VHS, as well. (By the way, I included a list on this page of all of the recent Joan Crawford DVDs that Warner Bros. put out this year, with links on where you can find them for less than these overpriced sellers.)

In this picture Joan plays Minnie, a writer who is caught between a rock and a hard place. During a chance meeting she is stuck with her lover's wife and the 2 women bond. I enjoyed Joan in this film very much because she looked stunning and gave such a fantastic performance that was both creative and real. This viewer really got the feeling that she was an accomplished writer, and for an actress that played everything from a cowgirl to a hooker I can't imagine it was easy to constantly keep reinventing herself like that.

once again, matlin's review is being unfair to this movie, it's a very nice movie to watch, it's funny at times, it's moving and it's got Greer Garson and Joan Crawford. I've seen it, it's part of my collection because i'm an admirer of both actresses but i think everyone would enjoy this one.
