all-about-eve-4

Double Feature with THE HEIRESS (6:00)

(1950) dir Joseph L. Mankiewicz w/Bette Davis, Anne Baxter, George Sanders, Celeste Holm [138 min; 35mm]
No one plays bitchy like Bette Davis and she positively excels at it in this backstage story of backstabbing Broadway stars. Bette’s fabulous outfits garnered another Oscar winner for Edith Head – her third of eight.

“All About Eve is not only a brilliant and clever portrait of an actress, it is a downright funny film, from its opening scene to the final fadeout.” – Kate Cameron, New York Daily News

“Joseph L Mankiewicz’s film dissects the narcissism and hypocrisy of the spotlight as sharply as [Billy Wilder’s Sunset Blvd], but pays equal attention to the challenges of enacting womanhood.” – Ben Walters, Time Out

“Joseph L. Mankiewicz’ All About Eve is a rich, impeccably written, gunshot sharp black comedy about an aging actress, the go-getter who seeks to supplant her, and the heaping pile of carefully fostered artisanal bitchiness that they construct.” – Witney Seibold, Nerdist
