All About Eve

In the classic 1950s film All About Eve, Bette Davis plays Margo Channing, an aging actress who often manipulates her friends.

How We Determine Our Grades

It is rumored that Bette Davis based her portrayal of Margo on actress Talullah Bankhead. Davis later denied it. Bankhead can be seen in Alfred Hitchcock’s Lifeboat where she stars as a survivor of a German submarine attack. Actress Anne Baxter also plays the role of Nefretiri in The Ten Commandments. Backstage manipulations and maneuverings are the focus of the plot in the movie Me and Orson Welles.
