  • All About Eve

    1950. USA. Written and directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz. With Bette Davis, Anne Baxter, George Sanders, Celeste Holm. “Mankiewicz’s quintessential backstager revived Davis’s career and gave Thelma Ritter and Marilyn Monroe two of their earliest plum supporting roles. Almost sixty years after its release, All About Eve remains one of the most quotable movies ever made: Filled with venomous barbs about ego, ambition, fame—and that nastiest of all species, the critic—the film says as much about what it means to be a star as to be a fan” (Melissa Anderson, The Village Voice). NYFCC Best Picture, 1950. 138 min.
