-->"''Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy night.''"
-->--'''Margo Channing'''


Featuring what is perhaps BetteDavis's most memorable performance, ''All About Eve'' is a 1950 TwentiethCenturyFox film, written and directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz, recounting the tale of Margo Channing, a seasoned veteran of the stage and the darling of Broadway, taking under her wing Eve Harrington, a young acolyte with nowhere else to go, whose motives are not what they seem. Other important characters include Addison [=DeWitt=], a jaded, cynical, and frighteningly influential drama critic; Bill Samson, Margo's director boyfriend; Lloyd Richards, Margo's playwright; and Karen, Lloyd's wife and Margo's [[TheConfidant closest friend and confidant]]. The costumes were by famed Hollywood designer Edith Head and the film score was by AlfredNewman.

''All About Eve'' was nominated for fourteen [[AcademyAward Academy Awards]] (including a whopping four nominations just for the actresses) and won six, including Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (for GeorgeSanders as Addison [=DeWitt=]), Best Costume Design for a Black-and-White film (Edith Head and Charles Le Maire), Best Director, Best Screenplay and Best Sound Recording.

----
!!This film provides examples of:
* AffablyEvil: Eve and Addison.
* AgentPeacock: Addison again.
* AmbiguouslyGay: At least to modern viewers, Addison comes off as more than a little [[CampGay camp]], which is odd considering he blackmails Eve into having sex with with him.
** There are a few (very subtle) instances in the film where you can also argue that Eve shows some PsychoLesbian tendencies as well.
* AmbitionIsEvil: Eve knows exactly what she wants and will stop at nothing to get it.
** Lampshaded by Addison. "''You're an improbable person Eve and so am I, [[NotSoDifferent we have that in common]]. Also [[MisanthropeSupreme a contempt for humanity]], an inability to love or be loved, insatiable ambition and talent. We deserve each other.''"
* AnguishedDeclarationOfLove: Bill to Margo.
* BadassBoast:
--> '''Margo''': A mass of music and fire? That's me.

--> '''Addison''': Take a good look at me Eve, it's about time you did. I am Addison [=DeWitt=] and I am nobody's fool, least of all yours.
* BadassLongcoat: Addison sports one of these.
* BadassInANiceSuit: Most of the males as well as Margo.
* BeamMeUpScotty: Margo's famous quote is "it's going to be a bumpy ''night''", not "ride"; she was actually referring to a party.
* BerserkButton: Trying to take Bill away from her has this effect on Margo. [[HairtriggerTemper Among others]].
** Don't laugh at Addison. Just. Don't.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Eve, oh so much.
* BreakTheHaughty
* BreakingLecture: Addison, to Eve.
* CampStraight: Addison.
* TheChessmaster: Eve, although she is OutGambitted by Addison.
* CynicalMentor: Margo has been in theater for many years, has seen it all, and knows just what makes audiences tick. Addison has much wisdom to offer to a promising young unknown, but certainly does not feel compassion for her or for anyone else.
* TheDandy: Addison.
* DawsonCasting: In-universe; Margo feels washed-up for playing a character so much younger than her actual age.
* DeadpanSnarker: Margo, in spades. Also Addison and Birdie, to nearly as great an extent.
* DealWithTheDevil: Eve's growing complicity with Addison comes to have unforeseen costs.
* DoubleEntendre:
-->'''Lloyd''': [Eve] apologized, didn't she?
-->'''Karen''': On her knees, I've no doubt!
* DrinkOrder: "I'll have a martini."
* EverybodySmokes
* EveryoneHasStandards: Addison admonishes Eve for insulting the memory of dead heroes and the women who loved them.
* ExtremeDoormat: Eve towards Margo, initially.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: A subtle example at the beginning; everybody applauds at the beginning when Eve is set to receive the Sarah Siddons award - everyone, that is, except Margo and Karen. Also, when Eve first meets Margo and Lloyd, she specifically mentions the play Lloyd is currently writing.. Finally, there's the scene later where Margo catches Eve taking a bow to an empty stage, holding the dress Margo just wore in the play.
* FunnyForeigner: Max Fabian.
* GentlemanSnarker: Addison.
* GeniusDitz: Loyd Richards and Bill Sampson.
* GenreSavvy: Birdie. Played for laughs at first ("What a story! Everything but the bloodhounds snapping at her rear end!"), but she's the first one to pick up on how Eve's devotion to Margo might not be all it seems to be.
* GratuitousFrench: Used by a few characters.
* GreenEyedMonster: Eve isn't at all an example of this! She loves Margo! Really!
* HairtriggerTemper: Margo in spades.
* HeelRealization: Margo has one partway through the film.
* HereWeGoAgain: At the end, it's rather heavily intimated that Phoebe may be planning to do the same thing to Eve that Eve has done to Margo.
* InfoDump: The opening narration of the film.
* InformedAbility: We see a sliver of the incredible performance Eve gives that's supposed to kick-start her acting career... but considering her character is performing ''fabulously'' throughout the film, we can assume she's great.
** And Margo Channing, the great lady of the theater, compared to Helen Hayes and Jeanne Eagels by Addison: all we see of her performance in ''Aged in Wood'' is a glimpse of the curtain call.
* InsufferableGenius: Margo, Bill and Addison.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Addison and Eve. Ironically, Margo is almost as self-centered as the woman who idolizes her.
* LadyDrunk: Margo.
* LargeHam: Margo and Addison.
* LemonyNarrator: The film is partially narrated by Addison, who has a rather low opinion of the other principal characters, and of humanity in general.
* LoonyFan: Margo is the only source of happiness in Eve's life from before the two even meet in person, and the focus of her activities for a long time afterward.
** The ending shows that Eve may have gained a LoonyFan of her own.
* LoveTriangle: Between Margo, Bill and Eve.
* LouisCypher: Some say there's a faint whiff of the demonic about Addison.
* ManipulativeBastard: Most of the important characters are skilled at manipulating others' emotions. Some elevate it to an art form.
* MeaningfulName; More than a few. Eve is named after the first woman while her surname, Harrington could be taken as a reference to "Red Herring", Margo is to Bill Sampson what Delilah was to Samson in that she robs him off his power, Addison [=DeWitt=]'s name is both a reference to the adder that offered Eve the apple in the garden and of course his wit: Addison The Wit.
* MultipleChoicePast: It turns out [[spoiler:Eve has been lying about her background and true identity as part of her plan to manipulate Margo into becoming her understudy.]]
* NaiveNewcomer: How Eve portrays herself.
* {{Narcissist}}: Addison.
* OneHeadTaller: Addison is this to Eve. This is particularly noticeable at the end, [[spoiler: when he hits her]].
* OnlySaneMan: Bill, to some degree, and also Karen, are the only characters in the film who aren't massively screwed up and manipulating others for their own gain.
* TheOnlyWayTheyWillLearn: [[DoubleSubversion Doubly subverted]]. Karen deliberates on her plan to help Margo to get over herself. She finishes with "there's not even a reason why I shouldn't tell her," then, as she picks up the phone, adds, "in time." Subverted again, when it turns out ''Karen'' is the one without a clue.
* PermissionToSpeakFreely: Bertie starts off her early rants about Eve with a variation on this.
* PimpedOutCape: Eve has one when she gets her award, that Phoebe tries on when she shows she has the same ambitions.
* PimpedOutDress: The lead role in ''Aged in Wood'' calls for one.
* PrettyInMink: Particularly when some of the ladies comment enviously on a sable coat.
** Marilyn Monroe wearing an ermine coat.
** Margo jokes that she'll just wear a fur coat and a nightgown to her wedding.
* PsychoLesbian: Whatever her feelings for Margo (or Phoebe), it's about as clear as the Hays code would allow that Eve leans toward women, one scene even closing with her and a female cohort ''retiring arm in arm to their boudoir''.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Given to both Margo and Eve.
* RichBitch: Margo.
* ShoutOutToShakespeare: ''Theatre/{{Macbeth}}'', specifically.
* TheSociopath: You could make a definite case for Addison and Eve.
* SpitTake
* SpockSpeak: Bill describing the time to Margo in the car.
* StalkerWithACrush: Eve is a stalker ''par excellence''. Whether what draws her to Margo can be called a crush depends on one's interpretation.
* SmugSnake: Eve
* TheStoic: Acerbic, icy, and unflappable, Addison is a Stoic to the very end, even when he would be entirely justified in showing some emotion. He feels passion only for the theatre, such as his joyful reverence for Margo Channing even when she is having a theatrical temper tantrum.
** In one scene, Eve is able to make him lose his temper, something no one else ever comes close to doing.
* TitleDrop: In Addison's opening monologue:
--> Eve...but more of Eve, later. All about Eve, in fact.
* UpperClassWit: Addison, complete with [[SmokingIsCool cigarette holder]].
* VillainousBreakdown / VillainousBSOD: Eve, whilst Addison coldly and efficiently obliterates her entire facade in private. She still goes on to win the award we see her win at the start of the film and is clearly going to be successful, but she's a shadow of her former self.
* WideEyedIdealist: Karen, which allows Eve to manipulate her with ease.
* WorldOfSnark
