What happens When Ladies Meet? If the ladies are Best Actress Academy Award® winners Joan Crawford and Greer Garson, expect classic entertainment. Glamorously gowned, exquisitely coiffed, the two screen legends share a heart-to-heart on sex, men, fidelity and wedlock in a sophisticated comedy/drama set among the well-to-do and the done-to. Crawford plays Mary, a novelist whose latest work extols the virtues of extramarital amour. Her inspiration may be personal: she’s having a fling with her married publisher. Then Mary meets and instantly bonds with charming Clare (Garson), who’s married to a publisher. Yes, that publisher. And suddenly a mad passion with another woman’s husband doesn’t seem quite so virtuous.
