All about Eve
(1950) Written and directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz. Bette Davis, Anne Baxter, Gary Merrill, Celeste Holm, George Sanders, Marilyn Monroe. (138 min.)
An aging (40!) Broadway powerhouse begins to regret admitting a meek acolyte to her inner circle. Witty and sophisticated, All about Eve won Oscars for Best Picture, Writer, and Director.
Bette Davis said, “Mankiewicz is a genius—the man responsible for the greatest role of my career. He resurrected me from the dead."
Our films are piquantly peripatetic this season, celebrating Ingrid Bergman’s 100th birthday, reflecting NCMA exhibitions on Elizabethan portraiture and Ansel Adams landscapes, transporting us to the North Carolina mountains of the early 20th century, and basking in the forbidden lust and corruption of midcentury Mexican noir.
