Our Daily Free Stream: Bette Davis - All About Eve. Zum Geburtstag von Bette Davis! - Älter zu werden bedeutete eine kluge Entscheidung für die Karriere von Bette Davis, deren Image schon immer hart und kantig war. Erwachsen waren ihr Figuren immer, naiv nie. Davis verkörperte professionelle Anführer, Überlebende oder Raubtiere in Frauengestalt. Margo Channing in "All About Eve" (1950) aber stellte ihre grösste Rolle dar! Margo schien ein Zugeständnis von Davis Unterlegenheit gegenüber der nachfolgenden Generation zu symbolisieren, in Wahrheit aber war es ein Sieg: Der Triumph starker Persönlichkeit über Schönheit! Eine persönlichere Rolle hatte Davis nie verkörpert. Davis spielt sie ungeheuer realistisch: Die langsam älter werdende Margo Channing. Der zynisch-manipulative Theat...

All About Eve

Brilliant! A classic film; absolutely fantastic. All About Eve is a film about a young woman named Eve (Baxter) who aligns herself into the life of aging actress Margo Channing (Davis) and ultimately schemes herself into the theatre spotlight. I really liked it.

The screenplay is one of the best of all time, perfect in every way. It has sort of a unique and modern flair to it, making All About Eve memorable and timeless. The performances were wonderful, also, especially Betty Davis. All About Eve garnered a total of 5 Oscar nominations for the cast; after viewing the film it's clear why. Anne Baxter, George Sanders, Celeste Holm, Gary Merrill, and Hugh Marlowe all give great performances. This was also my first Marilyn Monroe film; she has a minor role.

Nominated for an astounding 1...

All About Eve review

The story starts in an awards dinner setting with Eve Harrington (Anne Baxter) accepting the Sarah Siddons Award. A popular stage actress named Margo Channing (Bette Davis) adopts Eve before she was even recognized. Margo’s close friend Karen Richards (Celeste Holm) introduced Eve. The talented play writer Lloyd Richards (Hugh Marlowe) is Karen’s husband while the director Bill Sampson (Gary Merrill) is Margo’s loyal and trustworthy boyfriend. Eve becomes a competent aid to Margo since she was enamored with her fame and performances in Broadway. A theater critic named Addison DeWitt (George Sanders) ensures that Eve gets recognition and is well aware of her real personality and identity. A few fascinating quotes: Margo Channing – “Fasten your seatbelts; it's going to be a bumpy nigh...

Somewhat Met My Expectations

The main reason why I decided to watch this film is because I heard from critics that it has one of the finest screenplays ever written. I'm glad that to say that it somewhat met my expectations. The dialogue is witty, the characters are complex, and it is beautifully shot. But one of the reasons why I'm slightly disappointed is because I guess I was expecting a different kind of movie. Still, I did enjoy the banters and the costumes, especially coming from a film in early 1950's. If compared to today's films, it's still very smart and articulate. I couldn't take my eyes off Bette Davis because of the way she portrayed her character; I could feel the passion in the way she carried herself and the way she talked with such eloquence. I also enjoyed the way Anne Baxter's character, Eve Harri...

"I'm so happy you're happy."

Perhaps the best screenplay ever written. Bette Davis surely deserved the Oscar over Judy Holliday (who was serviceable, but little more, and is eviscerated by both Davis' tour de force and Gloria Swanson's study in grand delusion in Sunset Blvd.). The story of backstabbing as a means of social and vocational climbing is timeless, and the performances are fantastic (especially Davis and George Sanders, beguiling as the acid-tongued Addison DeWitt). While I agree that Sunset Blvd. is probably the (slightly) better film (certainly today it's cynicism strikes a stronger chord than does this film), I can't say the Academy made a mistake rewarding the outstanding work it saw here; it's essentially a toss up. This one is my favorite of the two (but only slightly), because of the writing. M...

Review - All About Eve (1950)

Eve Harrington (Anne Baxter) was a young girl with a passion for theater. She idolizes actress Margo Channing (Bette Davis) and tries to become her in the Best Picture winning film, "All About Eve."

In the first half of this film, all I could think was, "Great, another one of these." However, by the end of the film I was astonished by the writing and how well it worked itself together. While the beginning does seem a bit unworthy of Best Picture, it picks up and makes everything work. I have a feeling if I were to watch it again (as I most likely will one day), I would enjoy it a lot more.

The only problem I still have with the film is that it was made in 1950, but it looks as if it were made in 1940. It's not really a problem though, and it's obvious that the budget was pretty low,...
