Storyline: Aspiring actress Eve Harrington maneuvers her way into the lives of Broadway star Margo Channing, playwright Lloyd Richards and director Bill Sampson. This classic story of ambition and betrayal has become part of American folklore. Bette Davis claims to have based her character on the persona of film actress Talullah Bankhead. Davis' line "Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy night" is legendary, but, in fact, all of the film's dialog sparkles with equal brilliance.

Sets the stage for future female undermines female films
I actually watched All About Eve a few years back on the classic movie channel. It is an interesting film with a great cast (notably Sher Khan from the Jungle Book! Hey it's a big deal to me). The story is a haughty and over-confident woman being upstaged by a younger, manipulative starlet. It's a powerful film and a cautionary tale about getting too comfortable in one's position of power. There will always been someone working to overpower you in your field. You must always remain on top of your game. The game is never over either, for in the end when Eve feels she has one, a new challenger appears, and she realizes with horror that she is now where her old opponent once was.
All about Eve and others
I always enjoy seeing a movie about actors, it's very interesting to think that they are acting like actors when they are actors. This movie particularity the actors, did a great job playing actors. It's was witty, sassy, fun to watch and really well made and shot. The drama that unfolded in All About Eve was realistic but also had that dramatic flair that we love in these movies and imagine is what's happening behind the curtains in a theater. Romance, fights, betrayal, etc. This movie had most of it and portrayed it really well, so that the audience (me) was caught up in the story lie into the end and not regretting that she had watched it.
I had read comments about the quality of the writing in this film but I really had no idea to what extent this would elevate the experience. The fact is, it leaves me with no other choice than to give it a perfect 10. Unless you see this film, I don't think you'll have the necessary frame of reference with which to to base any expectations on. It's an incredibly engrossing, moving and often comedic experience, but time and time again what knocks you over is the absolute finesse with which this script was crafted. The fact that the acting and direction are flawless and surprisingly natural-seeming (most old movies usually seem stiff or people seem to "act" too much) only enhances it that much more. With this film, you can really imagine the *people* the actors are portraying.

"All About Eve" shows some similarity to one of my other favourite 50s films "A Face in the Crowd". Both are studies of fame and celebrity. Eve shows how a person will corrupt themselves in order to attain it, whereas A Face's premise is that fame corrupts those who find themselves in the spotlight. Both have themes that are perhaps even more resonant in our celebrity-obsessed culture now than when they were made. Interestingly, Eve predates A Face by several years.

And possibly most interesting of all is the honest and often raw way in which women are portrayed, the strength of their character and the power they wield. The male contingent is practically relegated to the back seat. One might be hard pressed to find a movie quite so "liberated" today. So what more can I say? If you love movies and you haven't yet seen it, you've suffered long enough; don't wait another day.
Vile Creatures
There were three great films released in 1950 taking us behind the scenes, up the skirts and under the floorboards of the entertainment industry, the other two being Sunset Blvd and In A Lonely Place. This is another wonderful study of corruption, greed, bitterness and ambition.

Bette Davis: such a horrible character, yet you can't help feeling sorry for her. Anne Baxter: such a sweet girl, but look what happens to her! George Sanders: the perfect balance of likability and sleaze.

Taking the crown for me, though, is Thelma Ritter as Birdie. She doesn't have to say a word, and you can tell there's so much going on behind those eyes… just marvellous!

Verdict: Humanity's sickening decay on glorious celluloid! Wonderful. (Watch out for an early appearance by a young Marilyn Monroe)

Unforgettable Characters, Writing, and Acting
The fact that "All About Eve" features one of the great Bette Davis's very best performances would in itself be enough to recommend it highly. Add in a host of other great actors and characters, with some of the best writing to be found in any movie, and the result is one of the greatest movies of all time, which most viewers remember long afterwards.

The basic story is fairly simple - at the beginning, we see young actress Eve Harrington (Anne Baxter) receiving a prestigious award, and for most of the film we go back to watch her rise to the top, mostly as seen through the eyes of those around her. Davis plays Margo Channing, who is Eve's role model, a great but now older actress who both affects and is affected by young Eve's career.

There is a wonderful collection of characters, each with distinctive and interesting personalities. Their relationships with each other are fascinating, and the film makes full use of their potential. The dialogue is terrific, and the cast does it full justice. The characters and their lines are all perfect for the performers who portray them - George Sanders as the cynical and calculating columnist, Gary Merrill as the high-strung director, Hugh Marlowe as the sophisticated playwright, and so on through the entire outstanding cast. After watching this movie, whenever you see any of these actors again you may well think of them in these roles.

"All About Eve" is a testimony to how great a movie can be when it is based simply on the important basics of writing, acting, and directing. Anyone who enjoys older movies, or who appreciates good theater of any kind, will find that it is as good or better each time that you watch it.

Great Movie
Great movie with rich dialog and acting. The movie was kind of predictable the way that it started. You know the outcome of the movie from the beginning and the curiosity will drag you down till the end to figure out how that happened.

This movie shows publicity and fame within theater and movie are the main nature that drives some actor and actress and they are willing to do what ever it takes to reach to the top using all people as a means to become celebrity.
Truly excellent
All About Eve was the award winning metafiction of 1950, a psychological study of someone who's willing to fake victimhood in order to get what she wants: the limelight.

The film is about an ageing theatre star and the theatrical milieu of her day - someone younger, prettier and seemingly hungrier has come along as a slightly naive, star-struck admirer who ends up employed as an understudy, but her motives are not what they seem.

The combination of real emotion, nuance, brilliant writing and acting make this film a standout. It is, by some peoples accounts however, a fairly modest production; there isn't any grandiose staging or 'cast of thousands' spectacle like in some old well-regarded classics. The film is about observation and intelligence though, not sentiment.
A Suggested Perspective
No need to recap the plot or echo consensus points. Instead I want to make a suggestion on how to take the story's crux. Generally the story holds up pretty well after six decades. In my book, that's because Eve (Baxter) amounts to a compelling portrait in perverse psychology, quite apart from a show-biz setting. Eve literally connives her way to the top of the Broadway heap by shrewdly separating an outer poor-little-me from an inner backstabbing-schemer. To me, her perverse character can unfortunately be found in many walks of life. Here her scheming makes good dramatic use of a competitive Broadway setting, but can also be found outside that high profile venue.

I agree with most of the positive remarks about the film. But I can also understand why some folks find the lack of action and snobbish setting off-putting. That's one reason I've emphasized that Eve represents a broader personality type rather than just a single movie character. So if you don't like the movie's context, you may still find Eve's personality type interesting-- the type whose inner person separates from the outer for purely selfish reasons, which Eve represents in spades
No wonder it won the Best Picture Oscar!
Each scene just flows seamlessly into the next - what a script! And what casting! IF I had been an Academy voter that year, it would have been tough - Bette Davis in this, or Gloria Swanson. Some great lines that live on and on. My only minor quibble - Birdie (the great GREAT Thelma Ritter!)( is never seen or mentioned again after the party scene - what happened?
two great performances
In June, actress Eve Harrington (Anne Baxter) is the youngest to win the Sarah Siddons Award. Flash back to October, shy Eve is waiting outside of the theater for Margo Channing (Bette Davis) after her lead performance. The playwright's wife Karen Richards notices her there as always after every performance and invites her backstage. The obsessed fan tells them that she lost her husband in the war. Eve insinuates into Margo's life first by moving in and then becoming her assistant. Slowly, Eve schemes to undermine Margo and take over her place.

This is one of Bette Davis' greatest role. She is pitch perfect as the aging star. Then there is Anne Baxter who personifies innocence at the start. It's a bit of a shock to see her spiral in her ambitions. It dawns on the audience that they've been had. These two great performances anchor a compelling story of the rise and fall of stardom.
