Film details

Introduction

Mankiewicz’s witty portrait of a Broadway diva (Davis) fending off age, rivals, and anxieties about the loyalty of a fan-turned-assistant (Baxter) is packed with bitchy banter. A superb cast (including Thelma Ritter and a cameo from Marilyn Monroe) does Mankiewicz’s pithy dialogue proud, none more so than Davis, and Sanders as a supremely supercilious drama critic.
