What makes the picture seem so good (what makes it eminently worth seeing) is the satirical touches in its detail and the performance of Bette Davis.

In our celebrity-obsessed culture, it's possible that All About Eve is more important than ever. Scratch that. How about it's more entertaining than ever?

A classic movie, whose qualities remind us that there once was a Hollywood where such sophisticated treats could be made.

[Bette Davis'] veteran actress Margo Channing in "All About Eve" (1950) was her greatest role.

A motion picture that, because of its priceless dialogue and unforgettable lead performance, will never lose its luster.

One of the best send-ups of the inside back-stabbing and infighting that goes on in Hollywood ever put to film.

There is so much to admire in All About Eve, even for those too young to be drenched in nostalgia for the spectacle of Bette Davis unleashing her sharp tongue.

All About Eve looks into Broadway's artichoke heart to ring an early death knell for classic Hollywood.

Sanders...was ideally cast in this role: you can feel in Addison's every word the world-weariness of the actor who would eventually commit suicide at age 65...

Joseph Mankiewicz was Hollywood's midcentury master of comic drama, and All About Eve, from 1950, was one of his signal achievements.

Along with films such as Luis Bu˝uel's "Los Olvidados" and Billy Wilder's "Sunset Boulevard," Joseph Mankiewicz's "All About Eve" made 1950 one of the most seminal years in cinema history.

Apart from the monochrome photography, all that dates the film is the chain-smoking and the fact that these are theatre folk rather than movie stars (frequent in-jokes about the low art of Hollywood pepper the script).

The presence of All About Eve, while a relief, is also a sad reminder of how in certain ways movies have regressed in the past 50 years.
