Inspired by the Men's Journal list, I'm trying to think of famous movies where no women appear whatsoever, at least not in speaking roles. Glengarry Glen Ross comes close (there's a brief appearance by a "Coat Check Girl"), as does Paths of Glory (which does feature a memorable song at the end by the future Mrs. Kubrick). Apparently there are no women in speaking roles in the upcoming Master and Commander. (Since I'm seeing the movie this weekend with an avowed misogynist, this is probably a good thing.) The only women in Lawrence of Arabia are seen from a distance, ululating. But women love Lawrence of Arabia, right? (At least, one girl of my acquaintance did. But that was years ago.)
