“Fasten your seatbelts. It’s going to be a bumpy ride.”

Famous line said by movie character Margo Channing played by Bette Davis in the film ALL ABOUT EVE (1950) Written by Joseph Mankiewicz, Mary Orr (story)


Aspiring actress Eve Harrington maneuvers her way into the lives of Broadway star Margo Channing, playwright Lloyd Richards and director Bill Sampson. This classic story of ambition and betrayal has become part of American folklore. Bette Davis claims to have based her character on the persona of film actress Talullah Bankhead. Davis’ line “Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy night” is legendary, but, in fact, all of the film’s dialog sparkles with equal brilliance. Written by Jeanne Baker <>
