Jill St. John
Stephen Boyd, Elke Sommer, Tony Bennett, Edie Adams, Ernest Borgnine, Milton Berle, Eleanor Parker, Joseph Cotten, Jill St. John, Ed Begley, Walter Brennan and Broderick Crawford co-star in this overheated camp-classic masculine version of All About Eve. Frankie Fane (Boyd) has clawed his way to the top of the Hollywood heap. Now, as he’s preparing to win his first Oscar, his friend Hymie Kelly (Bennett) reminisces about their life together, his ruthless struggle to the top and the people (see above) he’s stepped on to make it there. Nominated for 2 Oscars for Art Direction-Set Decoration (Color) and Costume Design (Color). Includes cameos by Hollywood legends Bob Hope, Frank Sinatra, Edith Head, Merle Oberon, Nancy Sinatra, Joan Crawford and Hedda Hopper. Directed by Russell Rouse (The Thief, The Fastest Gun Alive, The Caper of the Golden Bulls), with a screenplay by the great Harlan Ellison (The Outer Limits, The Twilight Zone), Rouse and Clarence Greene (Pillow Talk, D.O.A.), based on a novel by Richard Sale (The White Buffalo, Driftwood).
