Movie Quote of the Day (‘All About Eve,’ As a Critic Introduces His 'Actress' Date for the Night)

Margo Channing [played by Bette Davis]: “I distinctly remember, Addison, crossing you off of my guest list. What are you doing here?”

Addison DeWitt [played by George Sanders]: “Dear Margo, you were an unforgettable Peter Pan. You must play it again, soon. You remember Miss Casswell.”

Margo:” I do not. How do you do?”

Miss Casswell [played by Marilyn Monroe]: “We've never met. Maybe that's why?”

DeWitt: “Miss Casswell is an actress, a graduate of the Copacabana school of the dramatic arts.”—All About Eve (1950), screenplay by Joseph L. Mankiewicz based on the story “The Wisdom of Eve” by Mary Orr, directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz
