Dir. Joseph L. Mankiewicz. 1950, 138 mins. 35mm. With Bette Davis, Anne Baxter, George Sanders. Broadway star Margo Channing (Davis) is introduced to a young and seemingly charming fan, Eve (Baxter). Unaware that the girl is scheming to take over her career and romantic life, Margo offers Eve work as her live-in assistant. Receiving access to all spheres of the celebrated actress’s life, Eve becomes Margo’s understudy in the most sinister of ways. Mankiewicz’s endlessly witty script is at the heart of this classic film, which won six Academy Awards.
