Question about "The Women"

13 posts in this topic

Were both versions of "The Women" the only American films commercially released that had an all female cast?  Have there ever been any American films commercially released that had an all male cast? I'm excluding the very early Edison films that usually just had the engineers working in Edison's lab as the "cast" such as "Dickson Experimental Sound Film".

according to Guiness book of film, they are..but mine is dated (it only includes the first version of The Women)..so, I think so..unless there's some 'small' film in the last five years or so...

The question was if there was a film with an all MALE cast.     I find it hard to believe there haven't been many films with an all-male cast.

Any movie set in the military or the navy really.

When you say "both versions of The Women" are you including the 1956 remake? If so, that did not have an all female cast. There were men it it.

I realize the 1956 version had men in the cast. I was talking about the 1939 version and the recent version that had Meg Ryan in it when I said "both versions".

One feature with an all-male cast was THE FIGHTING 69th (1940).

Others with all male casts I could find were :

The Dawn Patrol (1930 and 1938)

The Enemy Below (1957)

The Thing (1982) (Adrienne Barbeau is the voice of the computer, but I don't think that counts)

12 Angry Men (1957)

No Escape (1994)

All Is Lost (2013) - Apparently Robert Redford is the only cast member.

Lord of the Flies (1963 and 1990)

Sleuth (1972) (imdb has a character named "Eve" but I don't remember an actual person playing that part)

Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World (2003)

Billy Budd (1962)
