Screen icon Bette Davis stars in one of the wittiest and most sophisticated films ever made by Hollywood.

Bette Davis – in one of her greatest performances – is Margo Channing, a self-obsessed, driven and committed actress who is shadowed and wooed by an aspiring ingénue, Eve Harrington (Anne Baxter). However, the shy Eve is not as naive as she appears.

Wonderful adult dialogue, great direction and a cast of excellent supporting actors at their peak (George Sanders, Thelma Ritter, Celeste Holm) make this movie one of the most entertaining ever produced.

All About Eve won six Academy Awards including Best Picture and introduced audiences to star-in-the-making Marilyn Monroe who appears in one of her earliest roles.
