Havana Widows is a 1933 American Warner Bros. Pre-Code comedy film directed by Ray Enright and starring Joan Blondell and Glenda Farrell. The picture is the first of an informal series of four movies through the early 1930s where Blondell and Farrell were paired as a fast-talking, wisecracking, working-class comedy team. The others are Kansas City Princess, We're in the Money, and Miss Pacific Fleet. All but Kansas City Princess were directed by Enright. (They appear together, but are not teamed, in Gold Diggers of 1937, I've Got Your Number, and Traveling Saleslady.)


Sadie and Mae are two friends who are in Havana to seduce wealthy older men. Their target is Deacon Jones, a self-appointed moralist who can't drink without getting drunk. Mae ruins their plan when she falls in love with Deacon's son Bob.
