Written and directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz. This is one of Bette Davis’ finest performances. All four female stars in this 50s adaptation of a short story by Mary Orr were cited for Academy Awards but it was writer/director Joseph L. Mankiewicz who landed a brace of Oscars. Trading on the vanity and insecurity of aging actress Margo Channing (Bette Davis), Eve Harrington (Anne Baxter) becomes her indispensable confidante in an attempt to launch her own bid for broadway immortality. Starring Bette Davis, Anne Baxter, George Sanders, Celeste Holm, and features Gary Merrill and Marilyn Monroe in one of her earliest roles. All about Eve received a record 14 academy award nominations.
