Bette Davis in All About Eve

ALL ABOUT EVE, is a compelling classic film about two vying actresses, one an established Broadway star, the other a young hopeful. Starring Bette Davis, Anne Baxter, George Sanders, Gary Merrill, Thelma Ritter and Marilyn Monroe. The 1950 film was nominated for 14 Academy Awards and won 6, including Best Picture. Having first met while shooting the film, Davis and Merrill married shortly after filming was complete.

This is an ArtWeek Massachusetts event presented by the Friends of the Cape & Islands Theater Coalition In association with The Cape Cod Museum of Art, The Cape Playhouse, The Cape Cinema, and the Guild of the Cape Cod Museum of Art.

ALL ABOUT BETTE: Bette Davis was an usher at the Cape Playhouse in 1928, but by July of that year was asked to join the theater’s Junior Players and played Elise Benedetti in the Charm School at Sears Memorial Hall in nearby East Dennis. Later that summer she managed to get a small part on the main Playhouse stage in Mr. Pimm Passes By, the seventh show of the season. Quickly rising to both theater and film stardom, by 1930 Davis had appeared in the last of her 12 Playhouse productions and was never to return. Her Hollywood rise was meteoric and just 5 years after her last Playhouse performance she won the first of her two Academy Awards.
