Day 6: All about Eve
All about Eve (1950) is a tough film for me and one I'm apt to fast forward through parts of if I'm watching alone as self-destructive angst can be annoying at times. The performances are wonderful from Bette Davis to Anne Baxter, both nominated for Best Actress, to Celeste Holm, to George Sanders as the conniving play critic (he won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor) so it is understandable why the movie overall won Best Picture. Plus you get to see Marilyn Monroe in one of her first film roles. I'm confident that by the end Margo Channing has learned a few important life lessons but I always wonder about Eve Harrington.
