#228. All About Eve (1950)

Why It's In The Book: "Considered one of the sharpest and darkest films ever made about show business... avoided by other studios for four years, the combination of Mankiewicz's cynical, witty screenplay, and a high caliber cast transformed the story into an enormous cinematic success. Nominated for a then record fourteen Academy Awards, All About Eve won six, including Best Picture and Best Supporting Actor (for George Sanders), as well as Best Director and Best Screenplay awards for Mankiewicz. Nominations went to Bette Davis, Anne Baxter, Celeste Holm, and Thelma Ritter, thus holding the record for most female acting nominations in a single film... in a brief but dazzling cameo, Marilyn Monroe appears on the arm of [Addison] DeWitt at Margo's party, the same party where Margo utters the now famous line, "Fasten your seat belts, it's going to be a bumpy night." having also won an Oscar in 1949 for A Letter To Three Wives, some see Mankiewicz's victory in All About Eve as final vindication of his talent in comparison to brother Herman, who won the Best Original Screenplay Oscar for Citizen Kane. That debate aside, All About Eve is widely considered to be the crowning achievement in Davis's lengthy career; its only flaw is Baxter, who seems to be nothing but pure ambition in womanly form." -1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die

Adolytsi - 10/10
"The film is so perfectly made I can't help but watch it over and over and note all the little touches of perfection I missed the last times through.."

Kurosawa_Lover - 10/10
"Dark, satirical and witty, it never makes a false move. Every line of dialog, every movement, every inflection of the voice, zings and pops with energy, intensity, and brilliance."

Movie Guy Steve - 10/10
"This is a film to be watched and experienced first-hand, not ruined on a blog."

Alyson - 9/10
"Mr. DeWitt may be a bit conceded, but with that ego comes the ability to see one's true motives."
READ MORE

Klaus Ming - 9/10
"Davis and Baxter are outstanding...the gradual transformation of Baxter's character from eager-eyed young fan to the cunning and unscrupulous starlet is uncannily realistic"

Siochembio - 9/10
"I get the feeling that if we locked both Margo Channing and Norma Desmond in a room together, they would either claw each other’s eyes out or get massively drunk together while swapping anti-aging tips."

Nicolas Krizan - 8/10
"Interesting from start to finish despite the touches of homophobia."
READ MORE

Squish - 7/10
"All About Eve has a plot with a sharp subtext that is rather reminiscent of the fourth-wall-skirting casting choices of Sunset Boulevard, most definitely including a cheeky, young Marilyn in a short role as a fame-hungry minx."
