All About Eve is the classic 1950 backstage drama that won six Academy Awards for its sharp and witty take of Broadway stardom. Narrated by acerbic theater critic Addison DeWitt (George Sanders), the film tells the story of how Eve Harrington (Anne Baxter) became the toast of New York. For many years, Margo Channing (Bette Davis) has been the most celebrated actress on the Great White Way. At the encouragement of her best friend, Karen (Celeste Holm), Margo takes in humble, star-struck Eve as a personal assistant after she spends every night waiting outside the stage door. Eve worms her way into every aspect of Margo's life including her fianc'', Bill (Gary Merrill), and favorite playwright, Lloyd Richards (Hugh Marlowe). The ambitious Eve manages to replace Margo but not without paying a price. Director and screenwriter Joseph L. Mankiewicz beautifully combines high comedy and dark drama in this much-quoted black and white film. As Margo remarks during the film, "Fasten your seatbelts. It's going to be a bumpy night."moreless
