Okay enough with the “woe is me” posts. ha
Continuing with this month's film flashbacks, today it's All About Eve.
Yes there was a time when Hollywood made movies about women who were complex, acted like grown ups and looked somewhat around their age.
This movie is one of my favorites. The dialogue is fantastic. I wish I had the opportunity to say to someone, “you’re too short for that gesture.” Since I’m short myself, it wouldn’t be verticalism on my part.
Bette Davis brought it! George Sanders as theatre critic Addison De Witt was priceless.
This was Marilyn Monroe's first movie and even in tiny part she stood out. All About Eve won six Oscars including Best Screenplay and Best Picture. It was released in 1950.
I hope everyone has a great weekend.
The scene with one of the most famous line in cinema, "Fasten your seat belts, it's going to be a bumpy night".
Bette is at her snarky best in this scene.
