Female (11-Nov-1933)

Director: Michael Curtiz

Writers: Gene Markey; Kathryn Scola; Donald Henderson Clark

Producer: Robert Presnell, Sr.

Keywords: Comedy

A wealthy, assertive female CEO has one-night-stands with underlings, transferring them to Canada if the man is unable to accept his disposable status. This pattern continues until one man refuses her conjugal invitation, of course making the CEO ever more determined. Astonishing Pre-Code artifact, though the ending may leave somewhat a bad taste today.
