Bette Davis is quite good here and there's some witty dialogue, but I just didn't find the movie all that funny.

It's really All About Margo-Bette Davis seethes and simmers with acid wit (her final line is delicious), though Ann Baxter's duplicity hits bullseye at the end. Smart, rapid-fire dialogue

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...
