I hope you enjoyed that gallop through Hollywood of 1949. All About Eve was a commercial success. I have invented Bette Davis’ comments to Marilyn Monroe, but it is true that during a scene that took 11 takes, Marilyn vomited from sheer nerves.
The film premiered in 1950, the same year that the Korean War began.
If you enjoyed the characters of Skip and Barbara, you can meet them again in my duel-timeline novel
The Lilac Cadillac
