“Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy night.”

In Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s devastatingly witty Hollywood classic, backstage is where the real drama plays out.

All About Eve
Directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz
Featuring Bette Davis, Anne Baxter, George Sanders
2hrs 18mins, 35mm

One night, Margo Channing (Bette Davis) entertains a surprise dressing-room visitor: her most adoring fan, the shy, wide-eyed Eve Harrington (Anne Baxter). But as Eve becomes a fixture in Margo’s life, the Broadway legend soon realizes that her supposed admirer intends to use her and everyone in her circle, including George Sanders’s acid-tongued critic, as stepping-stones to stardom. Featuring stiletto-sharp dialogue and direction by Mankiewicz, and an unforgettable Davis in the role that revived her career and came to define it, the multiple-Oscar-winning All About Eve is the most deliciously entertaining film ever made about the ruthlessness of show business. — Criterion Collection
