Leading Ladies

This week we celebrate some of Hollywood’s leading ladies from the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s who helped to inspire and open doors for future actresses with their incredible performances.


All About Eve

Backstage story revolving around aspiring actress Eve Harrington. Tattered and forlorn, Eve shows up in the dressing room of Broadway mega-star Margo Channing (Bette Davis) and tells Margo and her friends a melancholy life story. Margo takes Eve under her wing, only to have Eve use her and connive against her. Davis' line "Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy night" is legendary, but all of the film's dialogue sparkles with equal brilliance. (1950)
