What was the first movie that had only female characters? In a quiz competition that question was asked and I didn't know its answer. Although the question was for Bollywood but here my question is for both Hollywood and Bollywood.

    Is the statement "both Hollywood and Bollywood" supposed to be generalizing to all movies from everywhere or indeed meant to limit it to Hollywood and Bollywood movies only? – Napoleon Wilson Aug 8 '14 at 12:05
  • I got the answer for Hollywood movies, but I also wants to know about Bollywood which is more important for me. @Walt – afzalex Aug 8 '14 at 13:31
  • You need more parameters. Without parameters, I'm would go with "Woman Getting Into Bed" 1887, or something similar by Eadward Muybridge. You can watch some of his work on YouTube: youtube.com/watch?v=K6N2_82R90s – moviegique Jan 1 '19 at 1:51

Mädchen in Uniform from 1931 about a girls boarding school must be a serious contender. From Wiki:

The film was groundbreaking in a number of ways: firstly for its all-female cast; secondly for its sympathetic portrayal of lesbian "pedagogical eros" (see Gustav Wyneken) and homoeroticism [...] and thirdly for its co-operative and profit-sharing financial arrangements (although in practice these ultimately failed).

The Women is another 30s film (1939) with an all-female cast:

Throughout The Women, not a single male is seen — although the males are much talked about, and the central theme is the women's relationships with them.
