All About Eve. Although I did find the movie lacking. I was expecting more when I heard it won Best Picture. Seeing Marilyn Monroe was nice though.

All About Eve without question. A fabulous screenplay masterfully directed.

I love The Ghost and Mrs. Muir (if you search this forum you'll find my review), but it's really All About Eve.
