All About Eve
Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy night.
Dir Joseph L Mankiewicz
With Bette Davis, Anne Baxter, Marilyn Monroe, George Sanders
Based on (but not credited to) a short story by Mary Orr, this witty classic is a study in ambition and conflict among creative women. The story centres on acclaimed but aging Broadway star Margo Channing (Davis) and her relationship with young fan Eve (Baxter), who ingratiates her way into Margo’s life and slowly but surely works towards her own goal.
