  • Thirteen Women is a 1932 American psychological thriller film, produced by David O. Selznick and directed by George Archainbaud. It stars Myrna Loy, Irene Dunne, Ricardo Cortez, Florence Eldridge and Jill Esmond. The film is based on the 1930 bestselling novel of the same name by Tiffany Thayer and was adapted for the screen by Bartlett Cormack and Samuel Ornitz. Several characters were deleted from the film's final release, including those played by Leon Ames, Phyllis Fraser, and Betty Furness. The film portrays only eleven women, not thirteen, with Fraser and Furness playing the two characters edited out of the film. The film premiered in October at the Roxy Theater in New York City on September 16, 1932, then released in Los Angeles, and a few other cities in November 1932. A limited national release came in 1933. Originally running seventy-three minutes, the studio edited fourteen minutes out of the picture prior to release. The film was re-released in 1935 by RKO, hoping to turn a profit by cashing in on the growing popularity of stars Dunne and Loy. Thirteen Women has been cited as an early "female ensemble" film.
