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.

Very interesting to see the Best Pic Oscar of 1950. But was it really? It's a showbiz show & a fascinating look at mink-coat'ed but unvarnished femininity. Women are hard on men, but they're harder on each other here. In reality, this is a stage play on film & maybe deserves a special Tony. Why the critics fall all over themselves on this picture is difficult to explain, interesting as it is. Good casting & a Bravo send-off for Bette Davis. A must-see for any film buff ...

"It Is One Career All Women Have In Common, Whether We Like It Or Not, Being A Woman' - Margo (Bette Davis) - A Film Far Ahead Of It's Time, On The Cusp Of The Women's-Lib Movement It Chronicles WIth Dry Wit & Sharp Satire The Aspects Of Downfall From Grace In Light Of What May Come. Within The Mix Is The Politics Of Relationships, Prowess & Fame. It Is So Hard To Let Go Of What Defines You & This Highlights Those Quandaries So Very, Very Well. Marvelous Performances Drive A Good Character-Developed Story That Really Does Shine On Through The Ages. Loved It.

To sum up in one word: boring. Gets a little more interesting in a soap opera kind of way as it goes on but I can't help but see this classic film as being really overrated.

The atmosphere it creates, the acting, it pulls you into another world.

In the 21st century, this classic about an aging actress is still relevant.
