An ingenue insinuates herself into the company of an established but aging stage actress and her circle of theater friends. (IMDb) ( )

A fan attaches herself to an aging actress.

There are probably only four or five actresses in the history of movies that could have taken Davis' character and made her sympathetic; Davis makes her downright lovable. Every now and then a movie like this, that I otherwise might never have seen, reminds me why I'm doing my IMDb's Top 250 project.

Margo Channing (Bette Davis) on menestynyt näyttelijätär, joka ystävystyy nuoren, kovia kokeneen ihailijansa Even (Anne Baxter) kanssa. Margo ottaa nöyrän ja työpaikasta kiitollisen Even henkilökohtaiseksi avustajakseen, mutta Eve ei ole aivan kaikkea mitä antaa ymmärtää. Valehdellen ja huijaten Eve saa lopulta Margon huippuroolin itselleen. Näyttelijätärten valtataistelu kulminoituu Margo 'n murhayritykseen, jossa Eve kuitenkin epäonnistuu. "Show business" näyttäytyy elokuvassa varsin synkässä ja satiirisessa valossa. ( )

An aging star is coming to terms (badly) with an up and coming replacement. Full of biting remarks and sideways looks, sarcasm and digs. Great to watch with a glass of wine. Leaves you feeling rather glad you've never faced Bette Davis in a bad mood. ( )
