Based on the play Blind Mice by Vera Caspary and Winifred Lenihan, Working Girls is a subversive comedy following two young sisters from Rockville, Ind., who move to New York City looking for work and love. June (Judith Wood) and Mae (Dorothy Hall) Thorpe land in the rundown Rolfe House, a hotel for “working girls,” and begin their single-girl, big-city search for suitable suitors and efficacious employment. Screenwriter Zoë Akins laces the film with double entendres and knowing winks, all nodding to Arzner’s characteristically ironic views on work, class, and marriage.
