You should be careful: Some of the film women are not afraid to use their fist (or anything else in reaching distance...)
When film women have a quarrel they may solve it very sophisticated - like Angèle (Taina Elg) and Sybil (Kay Kendall) in LES GIRLS (1957) - and sue each other.
Or they try it more hand-tight like their friend Joy (Mitzi Gaynor), who simply hits Barry (Gene Kelly) with a framed picture..
Marlene Dietrich and Una Merkel did a very turbulent fighting-scene in DESTRY RIDES AGAIN (1939):
The best-known catfight ever is probably the fight between Rosalind Russell and Paulette Goddard in THE WOMEN (1939):
- and my favourite fight between a man and a woman is probably
Judy Garland beating Gene Kelly up in THE PIRATE (1948):
(That gal played softball, you know?)
Seems like a lot of trouble for Mr. Kelly here, right? Well, he deserved it - and of course made good for all in the end..
(That old charmer.)
So, finally we have myself caught in a cat-fight:
