A virtual unknown when All About Eve was made, Monroe leaves a lasting impression during her brief screen time.

Anne Baxter plays Eve, a young fan of actress Margo Channing (Bette Davis) who manipulates her circle of friends in her drive to become Broadway's biggest star. Filled with memorable, sharp-witted dialogue, this quintessential tale of backstage rivalry won the Oscar for best picture. (138 mins., 35mm)
