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.
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.
