My 2nd favourite movie, just after 'Witness for the prosecution'. Great Bette Davis, great Sanders and great Baxter. But I think that Wilder would have done better yet :-P
View all All About Eve reviews
Description: The ambitious Eve Harrington (Anne Baxter) gets close to the great and temperamental stage artist Margo Channing (Bette Davis) and her friends Karen Richards (Celeste Holm) and her husband, the play-writer Lloyd Richards (Hugh Marlowe); her boyfriend and director Bill Sampson (Gary Merrill); and the producer Max Fabian (Gregory Ratoff). Everybody, except the cynical critic Addison DeWitt (George Sanders), believe that Eve is only a naive, humble and simple obsessed fan of Margo and they try to help her. However, Eve is indeed a cynical and manipulative snake that uses the lives of Margo and her friends to reach her objectives in ... (more)

“All About Eve is my idea of a perfect film,(and I am 17) beautiful and brooding at the same time. People consider this as one of the finest films ever made, and I cannot disagree. This and Shawshank Redemption are actually films that deserve to be in the top 250. The black and white cinematography is gorgeous, and the script is sharp and focused with great lines such as "Fasten your seat belts, it's going to be a bumpy night". The direction is excellent, and this is further advantaged by a terrific cast, a very good subject matter and sumptuous costumes. I couldn't help being captivated by Bette Davis's performance as Margo Channing, her presence in the film is actually the film's main merit. Davis was an incredible actress, and while not exactly pretty compared to Maaureen O'Hara and Rita” read more

"“A lot of films that are about the stage or Hollywood don’t fly; they’re considered too insider…. The universality of theme of getting old, of a younger woman supplanting you,…saves it from people thinking it’s too much about that world.” -Rose McGowan “This movie changed my life. It really veered me toward wanting to have something to do in the theater or the movie business, and I’ve never regretted it…. It’s witty and funny and serious and says a lot – not only about t"
