Directed by Joseph Mankiewicz with Bette Davis, Anne Baxter, George Sanders, Celeste Holm.
One of the screens great sophisticated dramas about theater life and what makes actors act. Jealousy, connivery and betrayal run rampant as a ruthless unknown sets out to steal the spotlight from celebrated stage actress Margo Channing (Bette Davis at her best). Insecurities, delectably quotable dialogue, and designer gowns splash across the screen as Margo desperately tries to hold onto her friends, her lover, and her career. Watch for young Marilyn Monroe in a knockout supporting role.
The film broke records with 15 Oscar nominations, winning for: Best Picture, Director, Supporting Actor, Screenplay, Costumes, Sound.
An all-time classic to be “savored for its language, performance, psychological insights and proof that all the world’s a stage.” — Observer
