All About Eve

It’s Oscar’s season, and we’re screening some classic Oscar winning pictures chosen by our cinema team plus throughout January and February, we’re letting you vote on what we should screen!

Backstage story revolving around aspiring actress Eve Harrington (Anne Baxter).Tattered and forlorn, Eve shows up in the dressing room of Broadway mega-star Margo Channing (Bette Davis), telling a melancholy life story to Margo and her friends. Margo takes Eve under her wing, and it appears that Eve is a conniver that uses Margo. Also stars Marilyn Monroe in one of her earliest roles. 

Rename it All About Margo! Bette Davis’ glittering central performance as a glamorous ageing actress, all eye-rolling disdain and fabulous Edith Head dresses, is the crowning glory of Joseph L Mankiewicz's fabulously quotable showbiz satire, which swept the 1951 Oscars with a record 14 nominations and 6 wins.
