On Screen: All About Eve

Monday 18 September, 5pm
Running Time: 138 mins

Monday 18 September, 5pm, Cottesloe Room, £5/£3

All About Eve is an elegant backstage story revolving around aspiring actress Eve Harrington (Anne Baxter). Tattered and forlorn, Eve shows up in the dressing room of Broadway mega-star Margo Channing (Bette Davis), weaving a melancholy life story to Margo, who takes pity on the girl.

Director Joseph L Mankiewicz turns the tale and exposes Eve as a Machiavellian conniver who cold-bloodedly uses Margo to rise to the top of the theatrical heap.

Fasten your seat belts. It's going to be a bumpy night. All About Eve is a worthy Oscar winner with a sharp and sophisticated take on Broadway.
