We go to Occupied France. The British women are held in an internment camp that looks like it was once a resort. Most of them have two things on their mind: "Tea and men."
The face in the cast that classic film fans will recognize belonged to Flora Robson.
She's to the left on the movie poster. Robson was one of the nuns in Black Narcisssus....
A few minutes after the opening scene, we meet women are in the back of a truck being driven to the internment camp. Two roommates are slinging zingers at each other already. One is the stripper. The other is a writer. They're like a British equivalent to the Ginger Rogers and Gail Patrick characters in Gregory La Cava's Stage Door.
The actresses in Two Thousand Women kept things moving and held your interest. Between hiding and helping the three British airmen who were shot down and fending off Nazis, you can totally understand why one of the stressed out ladies says, "I've had enough of men to last me a lifetime." Even old nuns bond with the girls to outwit Nazis.
