Len Wiseman & Kate Beckinsale Present All About Eve
Kate Beckinsale and her then husband Len Wiseman hosted a screening of All About Eve at Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles. The evening was sponsored by Martin + Osa and benefited FilmAid, a humanitarian aid organization that uses film and video to entertain and to educate refugees around the world.
“Choosing a movie for tonight wasn’t easy. My husband and I are hosting it together, so it was actually quite tricky, since he’s a boy and I am a girl, so we had a few arguments. But this one we both love.”
All About Eve
All About Eve (1950)
was written and directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz and based on the 1946 short story “The Wisdom of Eve,” by Mary Orr. Highly praised by critics at the time of its release the film was nominated for 14 Academy Awards and won six including one for Best Picture.
In All About Eve an aspiring actress Eve Harrington (Anne Baxter) maneuvers her way into the lives of Broadway star Margo Channing (Bette Davis), playwright Lloyd Richards ( Hugh Marlowe) and director Bill Sampson (Gary Merrill). This classic story of ambition and betrayal has become part of American folklore
