Margo Channing is one of the biggest stars on Broadway. But having just turned forty she is worried about what her advancing age will mean for her career. Tattered and forlorn, aspiring actress Eve Harrington shows up in Margo's dressing room, weaving a melancholy life story to Margo and her friends. Taking pity on the girl, Margo takes Eve as her personal assistant. Before long, it becomes apparent that naïve Eve is actually a Machiavellian conniver who cold-bloodedly uses Margo, her director Bill Sampson, Lloyd's wife Karen, and waspish critic Addison De Witt to rise to the top of the theatrical heap.
