Now this is a tough choice. Both are superb movies, but something about All About Eve strikes a chord that's just not there with Sunset Blvd (even though I love Billy Wilder).
The dark side of Hollywood gets a grand double-feature! Both great films, but I honestly prefer SUNSET BOULEVARD by a large margin. One of the most brilliant original screenplays ever written, scarier today than ever before...
Wow this is great,Right now I'm pretty unsure.so I'll go with EVE temporarily.
I love both films dearly. I think overall, 'All About Eve' had better performances, while 'Sunset Blvd.' had a more fascinating storyline and tighter narrative drive. I would probably go with Sunset Blvd. because it turned out to be so prescient and more influential than 'Eve'. As for who should have won the Best Actress Oscar during this year, it definitely goes to Bette Davis in 'Eve'.
Kim Carnes was fucking right. I've always liked the song, but it makes that little bit more sense now. All About Eve has some excellent dialogue, wicked tongues, a wondrous sociopath, a lamentation on ageing and of course Bette Davis' peering at you with some sort of bright-eyed malice. Oh and Marilyn Monroe looked very boner-worthy in it. I just wish they would've cut the final scene; it's too on the nose. Sunset Blvd means nothing to me one way or the other.
Both of these stand the test of time. But the Blvd wins for me...
Two Hollywood classics released in the same year. All About Eve wins.
I prefer all about eve, but it is so close
