Showbiz Showdown: Gloria Swanson vs. Bette Davis
(NR) USA – 2 hr 18 min
1950 · d. Joseph L. Mankiewicz
Starring Bette Davis, Anne Baxter
“Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy night.” Broadway legend Margo Channing (Bette Davis) admits luckless mega-fan Eve Harrington (Anne Baxter) into her inner circle, only to discover that the apparent ingénue is bent on stardom at any cost. With its top-notch cast and cuttingly funny script, this Oscar-winning smash remains one of the classic showbiz showdowns.
The Thursday, August 1, screening will be presented in conjunction with a Cinema Classics Seminar, taught by Jennifer Fleeger, Ph.D. On this date, seating for screening-only attendees will begin at 7:00 pm. Just want to see the film? Purchase your tickets from this page.
