From the moment she glimpses her idol at the stage door, Eve Harrington (ANN BAXTER) is determined to take the reins of power away from the great actress Margo Channing (BETTE DAVIS). Eve maneuvers her way into Margo's Broadway role, becomes a sensation and even causes turmoil in the lives of Margo's director boyfriend (GARY MERRILL), her playwright (HUGH MARLOWE) and his wife (CELESTE HOLM). Only the cynical drama critic (Oscar winner GEORGE SANDERS) sees through Eve, admiring her audacity and perfect pattern of deceit. THELMA RITTER and MARILYN MONROE co-star in this acclaimed classic, which won six Academy Awards and received the most nominations (14) in film history.

TIME Magazine | February 18, 2009

It crackles with smart, smarting dialogue.

Abel Green Variety | January 30, 2008

The Zanuck production investiture is plush in every department.

Dave Kehr Chicago Reader | December 12, 2006

The hoped-for tone of Restoration comedy never quite materializes, perhaps because Mankiewicz's cynicism is only skin-deep, but the film's tinny brilliance still pleases.

Douglas Pratt Hollywood Reporter | June 14, 2003

Mankiewicz's flair for dialog is so perfected that all three actresses shoot fireworks whenever they open their mouths.

Bosley Crowther New York Times | May 20, 2003

A fine Darryl Zanuck production, excellent music and an air of ultra-class complete this superior satire. The legitimate theatre had better look to its laurels.

James Berardinelli ReelViews | February 20, 2003

A motion picture that, because of its priceless dialogue and unforgettable lead performance, will never lose its luster.

Edward Guthmann San Francisco Chronicle | June 19, 2002

Is there anyone alive who hasn't seen All About Eve -- anyone who doesn't love movies, that is?
