I just received my copy of Ice Station Zebra and watched it again. Great movie with good acting by the leads and Alistair MacLean's tense plot. But I noticed something while watching it and it got me to thinking about other movies with a similar feature. There aren't ANY women in it at all. The movie's best part of two and a half hours long. From start to finish we only see a single woman. She's in it for about 5 seconds sitting in McCluskey's bar when the message arrives for Rock Hudson. She's no lines and is only seen in long shot the scene is focussing on Rock Hudson and the barman. Unsurprisingly she isn't creditted!!! Can people think of other movies, particularly long movies like this one that have so few women (or men). I did think about other movies but couldn't come up with another example. Although there are others that are close for example Hunt for Red October - Just a brief scene with Gate's McFadden at the start and then a stewardess at the end. But none where no women even spoke, or where really nothing more than background scenery as in this one.
