The Greeks Had a Word for Them (1932), also known as Three Broadway Girls, is a Pre-Code comedy film directed by Lowell Sherman, produced by Samuel Goldwyn, and released by United Artists. It stars Joan Blondell, Madge Evans, and Ina Claire and is based on the play The Greeks Had a Word for It by Zoë Akins. The studio originally wanted actress Jean Harlow for the lead, after her success in Red-Headed Woman (1932). She was under contract to Howard Hughes and he refused to loan her out. The movie served as inspiration for films like Three Blind Mice (1938 film) (1938), Moon Over Miami (1941), and How to Marry a Millionaire (1953). Also "Ladies in Love" (1936) has a similar pattern and produced like "Three Blind Mice" by Darryl F. Zanuck.
