    Led by the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Ginger Rogers, and Lucille Ball, Stage Door makes us spend time with a large company of actresses PLAYING actresses, or would-be actresses, in a boarding house dedicated to that clientele - a lively ensemble! The women differ in terms of talent, dedication, integrity, background, and goals, presenting not just a strong cross-section of the people attracted to the profession, but also depicting the chaos that would ensue when put in close proximity to one another. There's great banter, but it's not just a comedy. It can be heartwarming and it is definitely heartbreaking. And it addresses the ugly side of professional theater work: the vanity, the opportunism, the sexual harassment, the unfairness, the emotional cannibalism... But also the camaraderie. Funny and sad and true, Stage Door is the full package. 1 year 2 months ago

    Not much of a movie in terms of plot and story, not to mention that it slightly resembles The Gold Diggers of 1933 with a twist, but my God what a comic extravaganza! I don't think I've ever laughed so hard at a female actress in a lead role as much as did Ginger Roger's character Jean Maitland- and that's with Lucille Ball in the cast!

    And speaking of Lucille Ball, having her in the same movie with Katherine Hepburn-that to me is the female equivalent of having Steve Martin and James Stewart in a movie together which would be my dream come true but of course it could never happen...unless, of course, they make a 'Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid II' to include Call Northside 777....but I digress
