Joseph L. Mankiewicz: Fasten Your Seatbelts
(NR) USA – 2 hr 18 min  
1950 · d. Joseph L. Mankiewicz   Reviews
Starring Bette Davis, Anne Baxter, Thelma Ritter, Marilyn Monroe

Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy night.” Broadway legend Margo Channing (Bette Davis) may have her best years behind her, but she’s still got a tongue as sharp as a straight razor. Moved by the sob story of megafan Eve Harrington (Anne Baxter), Margo admits the apparent ingénue into her inner circle, only to discover that Eve is actually a Machiavellian schemer bent on stardom at any cost. With its top-notch cast (including Thelma Ritter and Marilyn Monroe) and cuttingly funny script, Mankiewicz’s Oscar-winning smash remains the showbiz showdown to end them all. 

Shown in conjunction with the film course All About Elegance: The Films of Joseph Mankiewicz, this screening will be introduced by the course's instructor, Jennifer Fleeger, Ph.D.
