David A said:
There are plenty of named female characters in this film (Florence, Kathleen, Kitty, Agnes Stark, etc.) But it is over an hour and a half into a movie that is less than 2 hours total, before any of the women speak to each other. The first conversation that passes is between Florence and her maid Kitty after Florence returns home from her Carnegie Hall performance, Kitty congratulates her, Florence says thank you, and Kitty responds that the phone hasn't stopped ringing. They have another conversation later in Florence's bedroom when Kitty is reading her reviews. So this is a definite pass, though it takes long enough for it to happen.
