“Start the new year with Women & Cocaine as we immerse you in the pre code era and celebrate the greatest natural actress of our time, Miss Barbara Stanwyck with her gritty crime drama, LADIES THEY TALK ABOUT (1933). One of cinemas first ‘women in prison’ films. When she was good, she was very, very good. And when she was bad, she was terrific!‘ Richard Corliss, Film Critic on Barbara Stanwyck.
