  All About Eve (1950) Overview
Eve explains that her life changed when she happened to see Margo in a play in San Francisco, and when the production moved to New York, Eve followed.
Eve asks for the lead in Lloyd's new play, adding that Addison will print the truth about Margo's missed performance if her demand is not met.
To Eve's surprise, Addison coldly vetoes her plans, saying he has uncovered her scandalous past, and that Karen told him about Eve's attempt to flmail her.

 All About Eve :: rogerebert.com :: Great Movies
Her veteran actress Margo Channing in "All About Eve" (1950) was her greatest role; it seems to show her defeated by the wiles of a younger actress, but in fact marks a victory: the triumph of personality and will over the superficial power of beauty.
When Eve understudies for Margo and gets great reviews, Mankiewicz wisely never shows us her performance; better to imagine it, and focus on the girl whose look is a little too intense, whose eyes a little too focused, whose modesty is somehow suspect.
When "All About Eve" was recycled into the Broadway musical "Applause," Mankiewicz observed that the studio had received "infinitely more" in royalties than it paid him for writing and directing the film.

 All About Eve: Fox Studio Classics Edition (1950)
We watch as Eve's machinations slowly affect tension and dissension among the tightly knit group, all as she positions herself to climb the ladder.
Eve sticks to more subtle means - there are no murders or bloodshed here - and the psychological damage inflicted by Eve's cunning doesn't look frightfully severe, but much of the fun of the film stems from being ahead of its characters and watching as Eve inevitably cons her way through life.
Eve is something of a cipher, and Baxter pulls off her growth and change nicely.

 DVD Savant Review: All About Eve
But when Eve moves in on Margo's career as well as the men in her life, only critic and fellow schemer Addison DeWitt (George Sanders) really knows what the 'innocent' Eve is up to.
In the confusion, Eve is able to separate Karen from her better judgment, Margo from her fiancé and her high roost, and secure her own status as a sensational stage discovery.
Eve's basic deceit is to manipulate her associates with the aim of taking her benefactor's job.

 All About Eve Movie Reviews, Pictures - Rotten Tomatoes
But when Eve Harrington, Margo's young and innocent-seeming protégée, schemes to gain both the affection of Margo's friends and a starring role originally written for Margo, the actress discovers just who is in her corner--and who is not.
Joseph L Mankiewicz's wonderfully literate 1950 classic drama of the theatrical life, All About Eve, is back in the cinema, to be savoured for its language, performances, psychological insights and proof that all the world's a stage.
There is so much to admire in All About Eve, even for those too young to be drenched in nostalgia for the spectacle of Bette Davis unleashing her sharp tongue.

 All About Eve - Trailer - Cast - Showtimes - The New York Times
Based on the story The Wisdom of Eve by Mary Orr, All About Eve is an elegantly bitchy backstage story revolving around aspiring actress Eve Harrington (Anne Baxter).
Before long, it becomes apparent that naïve Eve is a Machiavellian conniver who cold-bloodedly uses Margo, her director Bill Sampson (Gary Merill), Lloyd's wife Karen (Celeste Holm), and waspish critic Addison De Witt (George Sanders) to rise to the top of the theatrical heap.
Also appearing in All About Eve is Marilyn Monroe, introduced by Addison De Witt as "a graduate of the Copacabana school of dramatic art." This is but one of the hundreds of unforgettable lines penned by writer/director Joseph L. Mankiewicz, the most famous of which is Margo Channing's lip-sneering admonition, "Fasten your seat belts.

 Review: All About Eve
Watching All About Eve more than five decades after it was committed to celluloid, it's virtually impossible to believe that the role of Margo Channing was not written with Bette Davis in mind.
Many critics have noted that the only aspect of All About Eve that prevents it from being mentioned in the same breath as Citizen Kane and Sunset Boulevard is the pedestrian nature of its visuals.
Eve Harrington (Anne Baxter) is a Margo Channing groupie.

 All About Eve (2000) Review by TKL - Korean Dramas - spcnet.tv
"All About Eve" is basically about the lives of two young women whose goal in life is to become the best newswoman.
One thing I don’t understand about this series is what is so wrong with women who have ambition or want to have a successful career.
One thing I like about Korean series is that none of the actors/actresses exaggerate in their acting.

 All About Eve Movie Review, DVD Release - Filmcritic.com
Eve, always wearing the same trench coat and floppy hat, catches the attention of Margo's friend, Karen (Celeste Holm), who introduces Eve to her idol.
Margo, a diva extraordinaire, is won over by Eve's appreciation and her emotional life story, which has "everything but the hounds snapping at her rear end." For Eve, being part of the creative process has always been with her.
As Eve becomes more successful -- she proves to be quite the actress -- we start seeing a different side of her, one that is remote from her aw-shucks introduction.

 Eve Harrington: The Bad Girl, Hollywood Style : NPR
In his book All About 'All About Eve', Staggs reports that the film was based on a story called "The Wisdom of Eve," published in Cosmopolitan in 1946.
In the movie, Eve gets the stardom, the awards — but it's clear her heart is hollow, her life empty.
Eve, on the other hand, thrusts out one hip, writhing an arm above her head toward the apples, looking right at us through slightly lowered lids — the picture of seduction.

 All About Eve (1950) at Reel Classics
One of the best movies ever written and among my all-time favorites, ALL ABOUT EVE (1950) brought Bette Davis "back from the dead" as an actress and became a feather in the cap of everyone involved.
And although Fox producer Darryl F. Zanuck favored Marlene Dietrich and Jeanne Crain for the Margo Channing and Eve Harrington characters respectively, Mankiewicz argued for and won Claudette Colbert and Anne Baxter for the two female leads.
Besides her signature cigarette smoking and smashing, ALL ABOUT EVE also showcased another Bette Davis trademark, her willingness to appear unattractive in scenes when the story demanded (as seen in the still below).

Eve seems modest, innocent, self-effacing, wide-eyed, loyal, fresh, uncynical -- she has a "quiet graciousness," says one character.
Margo is worried about getting old, and she needs the worship and approval of her fans even as it annoys her.
Just as we gradually learn that the manipulative Eve has been having Margo and Karen on, we come to realize that the filmmakers are having the audience on as well.

 All About Eve (1950) Starring: Bette Davis, Anne Baxter, George Sanders - Three Movie Buffs Review
Poor Eve Harrington waits outside the theater hoping to catch a glimpse of her idol Margo Channing after every performance of 'Aged In Wood'.
She is in fact the one responsible for Eve's big break when she purposely strands Margo in a car that mysteriously runs out of gas, in an attempt to teach her sharp-tongued friend a lesson.
The way she holds a cocktail, smokes a cigarette and struts about commanding everyone's attention, and that inimitable hoarse voice she possessed all come together to make this a performance for the ages.

The cunning Eve maneuvers her way into Margo's Broadway role, becomes a sensation, and even causes turmoil in the lives of Margo's director boyfriend (Gary Merrill), her playwright (Hugh Marlowe), and his wife (Celeste Holm).
All About Eve is one of the '50s gems -- a worthy holder of the 1951 Best Picture Oscar and a motion picture that, because of its priceless dialogue and unforgettable lead performance, will never lose its luster.
She never played a more autobiographical role...The movie's strength and weakness is Anne Baxter, whose Eve lacks the presence to be a plausible rival to Margo, but is convincing as the scheming fan.

 Film Freak Central presents Fox Studio Classics Fridays
Such is the thrust of this surly, haunted gem, which surveys the hazy moral landscape enshrouding a burst of violence and draws few comforting conclusions about man's inhumanity to man--everyone in Tetley's makeshift squadron appears to have been raised on the same pious principles, but one's values are not always reflective of one's agenda.
Rather than depict the cruelty of prejudice, the film is determined to give the audience untouched by prejudice something over which to feel superior, and it acts as a model for all the cynical do-gooding fools who have followed in its wake.
Perhaps it's not a stretch to call both a treatise on star politics, but All About Eve is an era-specific work, fossilized by wit not quite vulgar enough to remain funny to future generations, unlike that of Billy Wilder movies.
