All about Eve

1950, 135m
Winner of many awards, this acclaimed film shines on account of a scintillating script, Bette Davis' possibly best performance, and a dramatic story that never wavers. Eve is a woman unrelentingly driven by the desire for fame, ruthlessly employing all means on the way to stardom. The story has the ring of truth, at least in as much as it underlines the importance of drive and determination, even as it it may exaggerate the lack of scruple, as the prime ingredient.

A pungent masterpiece full of sardonic wits and barbed lines - it is something you can watch again and again for many years.

This film certainly escapes the fault of forgettability..
