All About Eve (1950)

‘Feelgood’ in this instance is actually more like ‘gloriously bitchy satire’, but same, right? Aspiring actress Eve (Anne Baxter) turns up backstage of stage star Margo’s (Bette Davis) play and insinuates herself into her life in order to make it. Six Oscars, including a well deserved Best Writing gong, for lines like: “I'll admit I may have seen better days... but I'm still not to be had for the price of a cocktail, like a salted peanut.” A comedy classic.
