All About Eve (1950)

Just as stage legend Margo Channing feels her star is dimming, she takes on a protege named Eve Harrington, a young and ambitious ingenue. With the help of sharp-eyed theater critic Addison DeWitt, this dreamy-eyed kid spins a deceptively cunning web around Channing's inner-circle, including Margo's director boyfriend Bill Simpson, playwright Lloyd Richards and his wife Karen --until she reaches her goal, which is Margo's spotlight on Broadway.
