Though well-acted, it's one of George Cukor's earlier, lesser efforts

Audience Reviews for Three Girls About Town


Fast-paced, fast-talking comedy they don't make anymore as sassy comedienne Joan Blondell (second only to Carole Lombard for the era) and her two sisters attempt to hide a dead body from the cops, and her journalist fiancee who intends to cash in a huge scoop. Some impish bad-taste hijinks ensue "Weekend At Bernie's"-style with some good laughs and witty banter sprinkled throughout. The resolution is strained but no matter really. John Howard also scores big as the newsie attempting to outfox his betrothed.
