5.0 out of 5 stars All About Great Entertainment, January 22, 2004
This review is from: All About Eve (DVD)
"All About Eve" is one of the greatest films released in 1950. It deservingly garnered a record 14 Oscar nominations (tied only by "Titanic") and won four, including Best Picture. Its plot adaptation from the original TV special is brilliant. Its theme of a middle-aged actress who meets an admirer who's determined to break into show business. Its combination of drama, romance, and betrayal keeps audiences interested from beginning to end. The various narration lines are a brilliant way to accent the events and the characters' emotions without the annoying repetition. Every event and word expressed keeps the necessary emotions intact. Such substance forces the audience to think about the storyline rather than revealing everything at once.
The acting is great! Bette Davis proves as always that she's one of the top 10 greatest actresses in cinema history. Her role as the stage actress Margo Channing is unique from other movies. Davis expresses Channing's bad attitude superb. Anne Baxton portrays admirer Eve Harrington wonderfully. Baxton combines Harrington's truths and deceptions perfectly while never losing the quality. Davis and Baxton deservingly received Oscar nominations for Best Actress for their roles. George Sanders won his Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Addison Dewitt, which he performs brilliantly. All other actors also perform their roles wonderfully; Celeste Holm, Marilyn Monroe, and others.
"All About Eve" is the ultimate film experience for those looking for a classic. Every detail in this film answers why this became a classic. This is sure to continue pleasing audiences for many more years. Fans and those looking for more should also watch "Jezebel" (1938, starring Bette Davis), and "Chicago" (2002, explores more show-biz greed),
