20:07 ("Mrs. Stephen Haines")

Each morning a screenshot from the 20th minute and 7th second of a movie

The Roz: Stephen's a very attractive man, you know?
The First Lady of MGM: Isn't he? I can't imagine why he hasn't deserted me for some glamour girl long ago.

I've written about The Women before -- I love this flick. For those of you who haven't seen it in all its catty glory, enjoy this still. Ponder for a moment the 1939 fashion wackiness that led to Rosalind Russell's "eye" dress. Yes, those are eyes and eyebrows directly above her breasts.

One of my all time favorites. Roz Russell's hats alone are worth the price of admission.

I love Joan Crawford in it, especially at the end, when she accepts her fate with a wise smile - "I guess it's back to the perfume counter." Don't worry about her, she's always going to land on her feet.
