All About Eve 1950 Bette Davis Anne Baxter Drama
Stars: Bette Davis, Anne Baxter, George Sanders
Eve (Anne Baxter) is waiting backstage to meet her idol, aging Broadway star Margo Channing (Bette Davis). It seems innocent enough as Eve explains that she has seen Margo in EVERY performance of her current play. Only playwright/critic DeWitt (George Sanders) sees through Eve’s evil plan, which is to take her parts and her fiance, Bill Simpson (Gary Merrill). When the fiance shows no interest, she tries for playwright Lloyd Richards (Hugh Marlowe), but DeWitt stops her. After she accepts her award, she decides to skip the after-party and goes to her room, where a young woman named Phoebe has sneaked into her room and fallen asleep. This is where the “Circle of Life” now comes to fruition as Eve will get played like she played Margo.
As Margo, Bette Davis gives one of her greatest performances. She truly becomes Margo, that “fixture of the theater”, so beloved yet so insecure. And as Eve, “the mousy one, with the trench coat and the funny hat”, breathy Anne Baxter proves adept at subtleties that allow her character to change gradually over time. “All About Eve” is a film that excels at great language and great acting. If ever there was a film that deserves the status of “classic”, this is surely it.
