    A seemingly timid but secretly ruthless ingénue insinuates herself into the lives of an aging Broadway star and her circle of theater friends.

    Сast and Crew

    Production

    The story of All About Eve originated in an anecdote related to Mary Orr by actress Elisabeth Bergner. While performing in The Two Mrs. Carrolls during 1943 and 1944, Bergner allowed a young fan to become part of her household and employed her as an assistant, but later regretted her generosity when the woman attempted to undermine her. Referring to her only as "the terrible girl," Bergner related the events to Orr, who used it as the basis for her short story "The Wisdom of Eve" (1946). In the story, Orr gives the girl a more ruthless character and allows her to succeed in stealing the older actress' career. Bergner later confirmed the basis of the story in her autobiography Bewundert viel, und viel gescholten (Greatly Admired and Greatly Scolded).

    Chamber drama, deceptively simple and verbally lacy. Eva is Salieri in a skirt and the catalyst for Margot’s existential crisis. Margot, who finally chose a man rather than a profession (yes, "part-time work" is impossible)), becomes almost a biblical Eve. The finale is wonderful. Translated to English

    Oh, this little Eva turned out to be not a little girl at all. Every famous actress has such an "Eva". But any glory has a high price! Translated to English

    Probably the best thing I watched in 2022. A black and white film with charming actors and a stunning Marilyn Monroe in an episode where every situation is pleasant to watch, and you get ecstasy from the denouement. Strong and confident characters are always a pleasure to watch. Good. Translated to English

    An incomparable thing, two powerful character studies about actresses, beginning and aging, in one bottle. Long before Birdman and Premiere, Cassavetes helmed All About Eve. There may not be such a strong theatrical vibe here, but the cinema is extremely expressive, and every dialogue is the height of wit. Translated to English
