"All about Eve"-The movie with ratings that rival "The Titanic"

"It's all about women---and their men!"-Suggests the tagline to this 61 year old smash hit film.This 1950's release (available on re-mastered DVD version under the Fox Studio Classics label) will have you glued to your sit for the entirety of the movie. Made in 1950, it rates high in the movies scenario and is definitely worth adding to your movie collection. All about Eveis rate alongside James Cameron's Titanicin terms of awards. The classic movie also has high ratings on the Internet Movie Database (Imdb).

Synopsis

Eve will stop at nothing to rise in the world of theatre. All about Eve examines relationships and careers in theatre through a very well written script and a cast that has great chemistry. The backbiting and backstabbing meets the vanity.

The Cast

Bette Davis, Anne Baxter, George Sanders, Marilyn Monroe among others.

The classic movie was directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz

Accolades

The film won 14 awards and led to Oscars for best Writer and best Director forJoseph L. Mankiewicz. It also won Best Picture Academy Award.

What drives the movieAll about Eve?

The movie is extremely well written. Dialogue driven, a wonderful cast who deliver 5 star performances supports it. One has to watch the movie to appreciate its thrust and drive.

This is an interesting point in a time when movies are driven mostly by the Star cast, special effects, sex and violence. It goes to show where the real power of a good movie lies. There is not much action at all in the movie All about Eve except one scene where Margo Channing (Bette Davis) runs down the stairs!

Rating

Personally I rate All about Eve as a straight 10/10 movie. It definitely ranks very high on the classic movie list. The re-mastered version is also brilliant in terms of Video and Audio quality. The movie comes highly recommended.

...I am quite a film buff myself so I love your creative output/input with this hub subject and perhaps you could make a series out of this theme - and I love your music hubs too .....

This movie is actually on my PBS station next Friday night. Yeah! The famous line "Fasten your seatbelts. It's going to be a bumpy night." comes from this film. I've lost track of the number of times I've seen it.
