This is last minute people, so I apologize. I am actually not organizing this event, because Lindsie and I are seeing PANDORA'S BOX downtown. So, join Laura tomorrow night for one of the best films: ALL ABOUT EVE. It starts at 8PM and the tickets are going fast, so buy yours here now:

I think that Laura is planning dinner as well. When she sends me the info, I will post it here later.

Film Summary:

"Fasten your seatbelts. It's going to be a bumpy night," says Margo Channing (Bette Davis) at the start of Bill's birthday party, and her protegee Eve Harrington (Anne Baxter) is all ears. Eve, a young starlet who models herself on Margo, is far from naive; she has an innate understanding of female insecurity and how to manipulate it for her own ends in a win-at-all-costs rise to stardom. Mankiewicz's classic tale of rivalry in the late 1940s New York theater world offers as much insight into gender games and role-playing today as it did then. ALL ABOUT EVE, one of only two films in Academy Awards history to receive 14 nominations, was awarded six Oscars, including best picture, director and screenplay nods for Joseph L. Mankiewicz, and best black-and-white costume design for Edith Head and Charles Le Maire. Bette Davis is the #2 female legend of the AFI 100 Years' 100 Stars: America's Greatest Screen Legends, he film is #28 on the AFI 100 Years' 100 Movies - 10th Anniversary Edition list, and the line, "Fasten your seatbelts. It's going to be a bumpy night," ranks #9 on the AFI 100
