Melodrama at its best. 1001 movies to see before you die.

A classic. The pace and wit of the dialogue unmatched in most modern films.

Bette Davis is at the top of er game as successful actress Margo Channing in this brilliant, all time classic movie. All About Eve is an early example of what we'd probably call a "stalker" movie these days but it is done with such skill and care that the real creepy, horrific element of what is actually going on is easy to miss. Anne Baxter plays superman Eve who stalks and studies her idol, Margot, with the cunning and guile of a rattlesnake, only to find herself trapped by her own machinations. Joseph L. Mankiewicz's directs his stellar cast with enormous skill and the result is a movie that has become legend.

Magnetic. Deserving of its status as a classic.

This is one of the worst films I have ever seen. Normally I would switch off if I wasn't enjoying a film but this one was so egregiously bad I was compelled to keep watching, as if mesmerised by its awfulness - the hamminess of the acting, the direness of the dialogue, the one-dimensional characters. And to think that this is widely considered to be one of the best films of all time. Words fail me.

Perfect camera work and great use of character interaction. A balance of mystery, comedy and drama that maintains suspense at a steady yet attractive pace.

This is a brilliantly acted film from a tight script. It's a tale about greed, and dreams set in the theatre. And it only seems to get better with age.

This drama contains strong performances, especially from its female actors. Davis' performance in particular is outstanding. It contains a clever and witty script, which makes the film an entertaining view. Considered to be one of the best movies of all time. AAN 1001

A great film about an up and coming actress that achieved greatness while using no so great means to get there.

The highlight of All About Eve is the amazing cast and it's always brilliant star Bette Davis. Let's not forget this legendary script with witty and humorous situations and complex characters and twist. It's a must watch classic.

It's a gem. A gem of elegance and intelligence so superbly directed that it looks symmetric, the end joining the beginning, Eve becoming Margo. Mankiewicz's Hollywood classic is a brilliant tale of ambition and backstabbing within the showbiz, stunningly remarkable for its memorable performances, especially from a magnetic Bette Davis who portrays a fading but magnificent stage star, Margo Channing, overtaken by Eve (Anne Baxter). And the dialogues thoroughly sharpen 'All About Eve', making it delightfully fun and witty.

Si existe algo así como una película perfecta, tal vez "All About Eve" es una de ellas.

Eve Harrington, una joven actriz (Anne Baxter), intenta tomar el lugar de Margo Channing, una actriz en el ocaso de su carrera (Bette Davis), tanto en el escenario como en su vida privada y el enfrentamiento entre estas dos mujeres es llevado a cabo con un gran arsenal de comentarios mordaces.

"All About Eve" es una lección magistral sobre guión y dirección (ambos oficios a cargo de Joseph L. Mankiewicz). Cada diálogo es exquisito en forma y contenido, lo que hace pensar que junto con "Enfants Du Paradis" de Marcel Carné y Marcel Prevert, esta es tal vez la película mejor escrita de la historia.

Ni hablar de los actores: Bette Davis nos entrega la mejor actuación de su carrera (y eso ya es mucho decir), interpretando a una actriz banal, paranoica y de emociones extremas, Anne Baxter también hace su papel definitivo como una criatura tan superficial como despiadada y George Sanders es el cinismo encarnado interpretando al crítico Addison De Witt.

Nominada a 14 premios Oscar (obtuvo el merecido Premio a Mejor Película), esta cinta acerca del viperino ambiente del teatro de Nueva York, además de esos estupendos e inmortales diálogos, también posee una fotografía en blanco y negro de ensueño y una dirección de una gran precisión.

P.d. No se pierda la breve aparición de una joven Marilyn Monroe como una "graduada de la Escuela de Arte Dramático de Copacabana".

All About Eve is a classic about the endless cycles vanity and vicious ambition.

Great bitchy classic. Excellent cast. Every character stands out. Even Marilyn Monroe in a bit part has some memorable lines of dialogue. While I still don't like how the script makes Margo (one of the strongest female parts in cinema history) admit casually that she, and all women, are nothing without men, I still can't find fault with anything else in the picture. The acting is perfect. I love George Sanders and his snobby voice, and Ann Baxter's performance is sublime : she goes from squeaky-clean mouse to venomous back-stabber without missing a step... As usual, the story is stolen by the always wonderful Thelma Ritter, who's the only one who saw through Eve the second she met her. It's a shame Ritter never got to take home an Oscar. She sure came close a few times.

All I can say is, this film stands the test of time perfectly, based on the needs and troubles of human nature, the script is perfect, the acting is flawless, perhaps one of the greatest female performances of all time (Bette Davis), it is impossible to find something wrong, it was done perfectly.
