All About Eve

US, 1950, 138mins, Cert.U

Film description

Known as ‘Hollywood’s Editor in Chief’, Barbara ‘Bobbie’ McLean was one of the industry’s most respected editors. In All About Eve, Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s witty and sophisticated portrait of a Broadway diva (Bette Davis, in a career-defining role) and her obsessed fan (Anne Baxter), McClean deftly edits to the rhythm of the razor-sharp dialogue. During her career, McLean became a powerful figure within 20th Century Fox, and Darryl F. Zanuck, the studio chief, rarely made a major decision without consulting her first.
