Briefcases & Heels: Movies About Working Women & the Office

Kenneth M. Gelwasser

"The King (or should we say Queen) of movies about female buisness executives. Melanie Griffith goes up against Sigourney Weaver to win both the corporate merger and Harrison Ford's heart."

"Rosalind Russell play's a  reporter, who squares off against her underhanded editor (and former husband) , Cary Grant  in Howard Hawk's classic screwball  film comedy."
Disclosure

"In this high-tech, suspense thriller, about sexual harrassment, Demi Moore is a female, corporate executive who is out to prove, that she can be just as abusive as any man."
Clockwatchers

"Welcome to the wacky, surreal world of office temps. Parker Posey, Toni Collette and Lisa Kudrow all shine in this weirdly, funny office comedy."
The Last Seduction
The Last Seduction
"Linda Fiorentino plays the ultimate fem fatal/con-artist, who seduces & flim-flams her office co-worker. Owes a lot to the classic Film Noir, "Double Indemnity"."
Nine to Five

"In this slapstick, '70s feminist office comedy, Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin & Dolly Parton play secretaries, who kidnap the ultimate, male chauvinist boss."
The Apartment

"Billy Wilder's classic film comedy about office politics and sexual  relationships in the button-down, corporate world.  Shirley Maclaine, Jack Lemon & Fred MacMurray are all at the top of their game."
Baby Boom

"Diane Keaton is a corporate executive on the fast track, when suddenly a baby comes into her life. Keaton proves her comic chops don't necessarily depend on Woody Allen, in this very good film comedy."

"A later Tracey - Hepburn film comedy, that takes place in the corporate world of TV research. They fight, bicker and of course, eventually fall in love."

"Faye Dunaway won an oscar for her role of a TV executive, who will put anything on the airwaves if it means high ratings. Sadly, Paddy Chayefsky's film satire of the TV industry has mostly come true."
Secretary

"The film, that brings 'S&M' into the office. Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Spader are both great in this weirdly wonderful comedy."
