Mike Craver, the talented singer-songwriter, pianist, actor, and original member of the Red Clay Ramblers, performs an homage to a Hollywood masterpiece.
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."
