Women, The (DVD)
It's all about men! In the eternal battle between the sexes, one side holds an overwhelming advantage: Armed with razor-sharp wit and wielding gossip as a weapon, victory can only go to The Women. Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford and Rosalind Russell enter the skirmish as Mary Haines, Crystal Allen and Sylvia Fowler--whose battlegrounds are the beauty parlor and fashion-show runway. The engagement begins when Mary's husband takes up with shop girl Crystal, and scandalmonger Sylvia gives Mary advice that quickly results in divorce--but that is only the opening salvo in this cracklingly sharp, classic comedy. The star-studded cast consists entirely of women.]]>

Should you upgrade? Yes! The original DVD looked fine to my eyes, but this is obviously remastered for the 75th anniversary and the bigger your TV screen the more you'll notice the improvements. As I've mentioned in reviews of other successful B/W Blu-rays…the upgrade achieves that long-lost "silvery grain" image you used to only get in the theater with 35mm. If you don't care about that or know what it means...you can probably stick with your DVD.
The supplements are the same except for the addition of a cartoon and an audio-only sound cue session (the audio is very robust and clear). Would like to have seen Criterion-level supplements for this film…but Warners has pretty much discontinued that practice with their classic films.
As for the movie itself…I don't trust people who don't like this film.
