Joseph L Mankiewicz Cleopatra
"All About Eve": The "dialogue is scintillating, characters. extraordinary, direction. perfect and production as fine as anything 20th Century Fox has turned out" in Joseph L. Mankiewicz's "captivating" (Variety) Oscar winner for Best Picture. From the moment she glimpses her idol at the stage door, Eve Harrington (Anne Baxter) moves relentlessly towards her goal: taking the reins of power from the great actress Margo Channing (Bette Davis).
