Oh boy, I don't know WHAT they were trying to do with that movie. It could have been a compelling story because of Curtiz's stature, and also the subject matter, but it went way off the rails for...

All About Eve (1950) was rather a landmark film. Davis and Baxter, of course, but I enjoy George Sanders at his bastardly best. MM had a notable role, but it really wasn't anything special.
