All About Eve tells the story of Eve (Anne Baxter) trying to emulate Margo (Bette Davis) who is a famous theatre actress. From the outset we learn that Margo is much like the stereotypical modern movie stars - moody and demanding - but despite this, Eve is just pleased to be her friend. The storyline gradually changes through the film as Eve starts to move further into Margo's life, attempting to take her fame, relationships and ultimately her career.
Slowly Eve's lies start to unravel themselves and she finds herself on the end of her manager's on scheming ways and the ending is clever - further displaying elements of the shallow lives of those in the theatre.
