Eve Harrington reçoit, des mains d'un vieil acteur, le Prix Sarah Siddons. L'entourage de celle-ci se souvient de son ascension.
Director Mankiewisz’s tragic comedy about the American show business is one of the darkest and most cynical films ever made. Bette Davis is brilliant in her roll as a once Broadway Diva who takes care of the promotion for the talented actress Eve (played by Anne Baxter). All together the film won six Oscars in 1951.
