Icons On The Verge

As close to perfection as they come. A film than can be viewed again and again without ever getting tired. Bette Davis's Margo Channing is a film icon of major proportions. A point of reference. Her fear of the abyss is as human as it is at the center of this selfish, insecure, sacred cow. She is surrounded by some other sensational women. Thelma Ritter, Celeste Holm, Anne Baxter and in a tiny but telling part, Marilyn Monroe - a graduate from the Copacabana school of dramatic art. Wittily prophetic. George Sanders is another piece of extraordinary casting and writing. "I'm essential to the theater" Indeed. And here is a film that has become essential to anyone who loves movies"

Added to the VintageIreland Film Club

A weekly Facebook-based film club for fans of all things antique and vintage, we chose to start our year's movie schedule with this 1950 release, All About Eve, starring Bette Davis as actress Margo Channing, alongside George Sanders and more. The film also features Marilyn Monroe in one of her earlier roles. Nominated for 14 Academy Awards, All About Eve remains the only film to have received 4 female acting nominations, among them Anne Baxter for her portrayal of the titular character Eve, and of course, Bette Davis herself. In the end, it won 6 Oscars, including that of Best Costume Design for a Black and White film.

Cynical character piece

ALL ABOUT EVE is a dark and cynical look at the world of theatre and those at the very top in terms of fame and fortune. It's remembered today for being one of the films featuring an inimitable Bette Davis as an ageing star who finds herself waning and facing opposition from her younger rivals. The film offers a pretty bleak world view in which everyone seems to be out for personal gain and fortune. It's finely-judged indeed and boasts some strong performances, in particular from Anne Baxter who takes ruthlessness to a new level. Davis the real star here though, performing in a more sympathetic role than usual and making the role her own.
