Marcia Townsend is ready to settle down, playboy Sheridan "Sherry" Warren isn't, so what do they do? Get hitched! But when Sherry continues to live in a way that would unhitch any vows, Marcia concocts a plan to give him his comeuppance. She'll throw a society party -- bridge, charades and payback -- where the invitees include people loved and left (and hurt) by the rakish cad. Salut, Sherry!
The sparks fly in this giddy comedy of manners (co-scripted by The Philadelphia Story's Donald Ogden Stewart) starring Joan Crawford and Robert Montgomery. Most giddy of all: the cocktail-fueled witticisms of co-stars Edna May Oliver and Charlie Ruggles. No More Ladies -- lots of Golden Era fun!
MGM regularly churned out films in the 1930s that were all "star power" and very little plot. NO MORE LADIES is a good example of this. Joan Crawford marries bon vivant Robert Montgomery, hoping to mend his wastrel ways. Montgomery refuses to assumes the proper responsibilities of a husband, so Crawford tries to make him jealous by taking up with Franchot Tone. Everyone involved has limitless money, beautiful clothes and all the time in the world to spend on the trivialities of the plotline. Depression era audiences loved to see good-looking people in sumptuous sets, so NO MORE LADIES was a success. The fact that, when asked, these audiences couldn't remember a single thing about the story was beside the point.
