Like Liz Lemons Sugarbaker Meltdown? See Bette Davis in All about EveBy Judy on Mar 20, 2014 From Cary Grant Won't Eat You
I always love a comedic meltdown, and 30 Rock‘s Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) is brilliant at them. In one of my favorite episodes, The C Word (Season 1, Episode 14), Lemon tries to earn a reputation as a nice boss by spoiling her staff. Of course, her subordinates quickly exploit her kindness, resulti... Read full article
All About Eve (1950) (1)By Brandy Dean on Nov 16, 2013 From Pretty Clever Films
For Hollywood actresses old age is at best a limbo of obscurity and at worst a slow descent into the hell of being unknown. To wit, just look at two of Hollywood’s most famous portrayals of the aging actress, Gloria Swanson as the waxily preserved Norma Desmond in Billy Wilder’s Sunset B... Read full article

Eve Harrington: Why not?
Addison DeWitt: The mark of a true killer: Sleep tight, rest easy, and come out fighting.
Addison DeWitt: It's important right now that we talk, killer to killer.
Eve Harrington: Champion to champion.
Addison DeWitt: Not with me, you're no champion. You're stepping way up in class.
Eve Harrington: Addison, will you please say what you have to say, plainly and distinctly, and then get out, so I can take my nap?
Addison DeWitt: Very well - plainly and distinctly - though I consider it unnecessary because you know as well as I do what I'm going to say: Lloyd may leave Karen, but he will not leave Karen for you.
Bill Sampson: We have to go to City Hall for the marriage license and blood test.
Margo Channing: I'd marry you if it turned out you had no blood at all.

Though most of the score is original music by Alfred Newman, the music during the car scene with Karen and Margo is an instrumental version of "Liebestraum" ("Love's Dream") by Franz Liszt, the same music the drunken, maudlin Margo had the pianist play over and over again during the party scene. The joke is that when she hears it again in the car (now sober, of course), she condemns it as "cheap sentimentality" and quickly turns it off.
Zsa Zsa Gabor kept arriving on the set because she was jealous of her husband George Sanders in his scenes with the young blonde ingénue Marilyn Monroe.
