ALL ABOUT EVE / THE MAN WHO CAME TO DINNER
ALL ABOUT EVE
1950, 20th Century Fox, 138 min, Dir: Joseph L. Mankiewicz

Seemingly timid fan Eve (Anne Baxter) ingratiates herself into Broadway mega-star Bette Davis’ inner circle in this backstage, backstabbing masterpiece by Joseph L. Mankiewicz. Eve wastes no time stealing Davis’ spotlight and man (Gary Merrill), but Davis takes nothing lying down. A superb supporting cast (George Sanders, Marilyn Monroe, Thelma Ritter and Celeste Holm) brings New York's theater set to life. "Fasten your seatbelts...it’s going to be a bumpy night."


THE MAN WHO CAME TO DINNER
1942, Warner Brothers, 112 min, Dir: William Keighley

In this wonderful comedy Monty Woolley is an acid-tongued New York critic and radio commentator who breaks his leg after slipping on ice in front of an upper-class Ohio family’s home. Forced to remain immobile while he recuperates, he takes over the household during the holidays, bringing in his secretary (Bette Davis) who promptly falls for a local newspaperman (Richard Travis). When Woolley begins to realize he may lose his prized assistant, he calls in sexy actress friend Ann Sheridan to put the moves on the object of Davis’ affection. With some poisonously funny dialogue and a sterling supporting cast, including Billie Burke, Jimmy Durante, Reginald Gardiner and Mary Wickes.
