Bette Davis is outstanding. Remarkable. In fact, the entire cast is superb. No weak links in the chain. From Margot Channing, Davis' benevolent volcano character, through to George Sanders' portrayal of the cool, calculating Addison DeWitt and Anne Baxter as the ‘butter wouldn't melt’ Eve Harrington, the desperately wannabe actress who climbs the stardom ladder by stepping on anyone who provides the best foothold, ‘friends’ notwithstanding. The film is wonderful a real treat. Do yourself a favour, grab it with both hands and step back in time to a totally different era in filmmaking.
