All About Eve was filmed in the 1950's and won six Academy Awards. The leading lady character, Margo Channing, on stage and personally, feels defeated by the wiles of a younger woman, Eve Harrington.
If you haven't watched All About Eve, it is a must for all women who have worked outside the home, whether you are a Broadway star or an administrative assistant - - you will relate. Through the working years outside the home, I have certainly met the notorious Eve. Oh hell, what am I talking about? Even when I have freelanced from home, I have had to deal with the notorious Eves'.
The movie is very sophisticated, smart, and even bits of dry humor are spattered about. It is truly a lesson on human behavior. This is also a good movie for our male counterparts to watch as they will learn some great insights. If you have seen the movie - - see it again. All about Eve is timeless classic.
"Funny business, a woman's career - the things you drop on your way up the ladder so you can move faster. You forget you'll need them again when you get back to being a woman. That's one career all females have in common, whether we like it or not: being a woman. Sooner or later, we've got to work at it, no matter how many other careers we've had or wanted. And in the last analysis, nothing's any good unless you can look up just before dinner or turn around in bed, and there he is. Without that, you're not a woman. You're something with a French provincial office or a book full of clippings, but you're not a woman. Slow curtain, the end." - Margot Channing, All About Eve
