All About Eve is considered one of the greatest films of all time with outstanding performances by Bette Davis, Anne Baxter, and Celeste Holme. Go behind-the-scenes of the Oscar-winning film with these photographs below.

Bette Davis took a very special guest to the premiere of the film -- her mother, Ruth Augusta Davis. Davis wrote about her beloved mother in The Lonely Life, “She was made up of so many things, my mother. Brutal honesty and silly deceits; self-indulgence and endless sacrifices; love and loyalty and that abundance of joy of living.”


In this picture, Anne Baxter prepares to win the award as Eve. For her performance in the film, she was nominated in real life for an Academy Award.


George Sanders poses for a publicity shot looking dapper, as usual.


Director Joseph L. Mankiewicz stands beside Gary Merrill and Anne Baxter, delivering notes. Baxter was especially pleased with the film and said, “When do you have a script you can read as a play? Egads, that was fantastic.”


Mankiewicz speaks with Marilyn Monroe who had a small part in the film. Monroe's agent Johnny Hyde was crucial in her getting cast in the role, as he wanted her to work in a film which he knew would be important.
