Library Film Features All About Eve

The 1950 drama film All About Eve was written and directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz and produced by Darryl F. Zanuck. The film stars Bette Davis as Margo Channing, a highly regarded but aging Broadway star. Anne Baxter plays Eve Harrington, an ambitious young fan who insinuates herself into Channing's life, ultimately threatening Channing's career and her personal relationships. George Sanders, Celeste Holm, Hugh Marlowe, Barbara Bates, Gary Merrill, Thelma Ritter, and Marilyn Monroe also appear.

Praised by critics at the time of its release, All About Eve received 14 Academy Awards nominations and was selected in 1990 for preservation in the United States National Film Registry and was among the first 50 films to be registered. It also appeared at #16 on AFI's 1998 list of the 100 best American films

Join us at the Greenville Public Library on Thursday April 20th at 7 p.m. Ryan Carpe will be leading a brief discussion after the movie and as always there will be free theater popcorn, candy, coffee, and Jones Soda. We hope to see you there!
