All About Eve is a American drama film written and directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz, and produced by Darryl F. Zanuck. It was based on the short story "The Wisdom of Eve" by Mary Orr, although screen credit was not given for it . The film stars Bette Davis as Margo Channing, a highly regarded but aging.

Turning classic movies into plays is just plain wrong

Margo Channing, played by Davis, is among the most divine monsters in the history of cinema Photograph: 20th Century Fox. For my heart is here in the theatre. Such artistic hierarchies are common. Some remain in place. Some eventually get dismantled.

She has it all: fame, talent, wealth, beauty, a devoted partner, loyal friends. She should be on stage but she is stuck, in the cold and dark, in a car that has run out of petrol, acidulously contemplating what it is — and what has to be sacrificed — to be a successful woman. It is a monologue so painfully fresh it could have been written yesterday. That is perhaps why this barbed tale of female ambition that is so deft in its depiction of the inner lives and complexities of women continues to fascinate audiences and artists. I went to an all-girls school where this was going on all the time.
