It isn’t quite “Rashomon”, but “All About Eve” forever codified a similarly useful and durable concept—the suckup who secretly wants to replace you. Bette Davis’ Broadway diva is on top when she meets Anne Baxter’s sweet-as-pie fan, but soon something else hits the fan, as it were. Writer/director Joseph L. Mankiewicz made a side career out of savaging show business itself, and this is perhaps his most gratifying bite. -LG
