Though Kay Francis' Warner Bros. vehicle had slipped from "A" attractions to B-plus programmers by 1938, she was still worth watching. A typical Francis vehicle of the time was Women are Like That, in which the star is cast as businesswoman Claire King, the daughter of a powerful advertising executive. When Claire marries humble copywriter Bill Landin (Pat O'Brien), she wants to use her influence to help her husband get ahead, but he will have none of it. Claire's persistence and Bill's stubborness almost leads to a parting of the ways, but things are set aright by the end of the picture. Based on a Saturday Evening Post story by Albert H. Z. Carr, Women are Like That is faintly reminiscent of the 1924 "boss lady"drama Smouldering Fires.
