By ruthlessly exploiting the older woman's kindness and hospitality, she manages to achieve her present success while almost destroying her "friend" in the process. The ending of the film returns to the awards banquet to find the starlet clinging to her trophy -- the only thing left in her life to cling to.

Synopsis

As the film opens, a rising young actress accepts an award for best newcomer on the Broadway scene. Then, in a flashback, we see the starlet insinuating herself into the life of her idol, an aging but accomplished actress. By ruthlessly exploiting the older woman's kindness and hospitality, she manages to achieve her present success while almost destroying her "friend" in the process. The ending of the film returns to the awards banquet to find the starlet clinging to her trophy -- the only thing left in her life to cling to.

Description

This brilliant, acerbic look at theatre life features Davis as an aging Broadway star who takes a seemingly naive fan under her wing, only to discover the waif is scheming to take her throne. Wit and sarcasm reign supreme as the determined divas duke it out. Davis is often cited for this role, but George Sanders as the viperish columnist is oily perfection. Academy Award Nominations: 14, including Best Actress-Anne Baxter, Best Actress-Bette Davis. Academy Awards: 6, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Supporting Actor--George Sanders.
