When I signed up for the LitFlicks Challenge, I originally wanted to view movies that had won the Best Picture Oscar and read the books that were the story source for the adaption to the screen.
I had bookmooched The Wisdom of Eve by Mary Orr and Reginald Denham thinking this was a book. However, it is a play adapted from the story by Mary Orr on which the film All About Eve was based. I believe it was first a story published in a magazine. I didn’t mind reading the play but would have preferred it in prose.
Then, I watched the film… AWESOME! It was delightful! and funny! and had witty banter!! Won Best Picture Oscar 1951. and slew of other categories – wins and nominations. Check the movie details here.
I loved it.
Maybe this isn’t much of a review, but it’s all I got.
