All About Theater.
Like all major art forms, theater has been in a constant evolutionary process for centuries. The origins of theater can be traced to the 6th century BC and stamping it's footprint in Ancient Greece. Around 1750, the art of theater was introduced to New York City, where it flourished. "All About Eve", directed and written by Joseph L. Mankiewicz, is a based on the novel "The Wisdom of Eve", written by Mary Orr. All About Eve is a movie about Broadway theater and the harsh competition that it brings. It is a film that entertained so many people because of its clever story line and unique sense of portraying human nature. Joseph L. Mankiewicz's clever writing and good directing helped capture the audience in All About Eve. Later to become Academy Award winner in Three Coins in the Fountain (1954), Milton R. Krasner's cinematography projected Joseph L. Mankiewicz's vision with good angles and clever techniques. Alfred Newman's musical score was ranked 5 out of 5 on the Turner Classic Movie database, and set a good background for the movie setting the right moods at the right times.
