I think one of the secretaries *might* have a name, but basically this is a movie with only one named woman. None of the women talk to each other about anything.

Made before the Hays Code was enforced so strictly, this movie is full of innuendo and even the word "sex." Gilda is in love with--and has made love with (separately)--two friends, and they all decide to live together but agree there will be no sex.

This movie is surprising to a modern viewer given its age and is worth watching!
