What more can be said about one of the all-time great backstage movies ever made! It has EVERYTHING: Sparkling, witty script ( Joseph Mankiewicz's finest hour both as writer AND director ), fantastic performances from a stellar cast ( Bette Davis, Anne Baxter, George Sanders, Celeste Holm, Thelma Ritter - just to name a few ) and wonderful dramatic power both as scintilating comedy and icy cold soap opera! One terrifc scene after another in this story of a conniving young actress as she snakes her way to the top of Broadway by using everyone in her path! Well worth a look - even for the 50th time!!

Classic, simply put... a classic

This is one of those films (like 'Gone with the Wind') that simply beyond reproach. Every line of dialogue, every nuance of acting is done with such great care. This movie will live on as one of the greatest classics of American cinema.

The Movie stands on it's own..what could I possibly say about it..
The audience was great and the free drinks at the reception area were a nice surprise.
I along with three other friends were encouraged to see and support the american cinemateque based on the recommendation of DAVID GROTH.
He highly promoted the movie ...
