Can’t Cramp Her Style

The Giphy is taken from the film ‘All About Eve‘ with Bette Davis. It is about a forty-year old actress who is being sabotaged by a younger rival. This role did not cramp her style at all. Isn’t she gorgeous and not old or over the hill except maybe by Hollywood standards.

      I thought the screenplay and original short story were very insightful. I read she was 42 when she played this role. I am sure she was well aware of ageism in Hollywood, especially toward women. She always impressed me as very strong and I think she fought to be independent of the studio system of the time. Thank you, Linda. 🙂
