Hypocrisy reaches a new glamorous status in Mankiewicz's marvelous prime opera about ambition, manipulation and psychological catastrophe. The true highlight of this legendary masterpiece of razor-sharp dialogues, unparalleled performances and a top-notch direction is the way our preconceptions and definitions of "climax", "plot development" and "antagonistic character" are completely shattered. Yes, the Academy overreacted (my soul still prefers the cataclysmic meta-film brilliance of Sunset Blvd. [1950]), but the current's film status has lived up to the hype of the present generations. Oh, the beauty of betrayal and Hollywood capitalism! 98/100

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

Altern

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...
