Three Ladies (Spanish: Trío de damas) is a 1960 Spanish comedy film directed by Pedro Lazaga and starring Francisco Rabal, Laura Valenzuela and José Luis López Vázquez. [1]

A Comedy Film is a genre of film in which the main emphasis is on humour. These films are designed to make the audience laugh through amusement and most often work by exaggerating characteristics for humorous effect. Films in this style traditionally have a happy ending. One of the oldest genres in film, some of the very first silent movies were comedies, as slapstick comedy often relies on visual depictions, without requiring sound. When sound films became more prevalent during the 1920s, comedy films took another swing, as laughter could result from burlesque situations but also dialogue.
