Heroes & Villains
Bette Davis, Anne Baxter, George Sanders (1950)
In this Machiavellian story of ambition and betrayal Bette Davis stars as Margo Channing, a highly regarded but aging Broadway star. Anne Baxter plays Eve Harrington, an ambitious young fan who insinuates herself into Channing’s life, ruthlessly threatening Channing’s career and personal relationships as she climbs the greasy pole towards success. Marilyn Monroe co-stars in this acclaimed classic, recipient of the most nominations in film history and winner of six.
