All about "All about Eve" Summary


All about "All about Eve" by Sam Staggs

ALL ABOUT EVE is the classic, Oscar-winning tale of devious ambition that revived the career of failing Bette Davis, introduced a starlet by the then unknown name of Marilyn Monroe and produced some of the most talked about off-screen dramas in Hollywood history. With humour, grave and loving detail. Staggs' chronicle begins with the previously-unpublished story of the real-life stage actress and her less-than-sincere understudy who inspired Margo Channing and Eve Harrington. Staggs details the studio's struggles to revise the screenplay and provides us with a delicious play-by-play of the film's dueling divas, as well as Davis's on-set romance with Gary Marrill. With scathing backstage quips ALL ABOUT EVE will entertain and inform both the novice and the most dedicated buff.

All about "All about Eve" Reviews


"This is the best movie book I've ever read. I devoured it in one sitting. Staggs may not have invented the genre, but he's certainly perfected it." --Florence King, author of Confessions of a Failed Southern Lady

"Stagg's gossipy goulash celebrates all of Eve's incarnations, from the original tale...to the Broadway musical Applause...[He] provides thoughtful film analysis and a thrilling final coup: an interview with the real Eve." --People
