All About Eve ★★★★★

Wow! All About Eve is on the list of greatest films for a reason. Bette Davis gives a tour-de-force acting performance as Margo, an insecure theater mega-star who is on the verge of aging out of the roles she is known for. Anne Baxter is fantastic as Eve, the starry-eyed eyed girl who Margo takes under her wing. The themes explored in All About Eve are universal to the human condition. This 68 year-old-film could have easily been shot yesterday, except perhaps the acting and writing wouldn't have been as good.
