From the moment she glimpses her idol at the stage door, Eve Harrington (ANN BAXTER) is determined to take the reins of power away from the great actress Margo Channing (BETTE DAVIS). Eve maneuvers her way into Margo's Broadway role, becomes a sensation and even causes turmoil in the lives of Margo's director boyfriend (GARY MERRILL), her playwright (HUGH MARLOWE) and his wife (CELESTE HOLM). Only the cynical drama critic (Oscar winner GEORGE SANDERS) sees through Eve, admiring her audacity and perfect pattern of deceit. THELMA RITTER and MARILYN MONROE co-star in this acclaimed classic, which won six Academy Awards and received the most nominations (14) in film history.

But none of her listeners would ever guess that her own painful marriage has left her bitter and disillusioned towards the institution. After all, who would take advice from someone who doesn't believe in love? Jake Murphy has tried for years to be a success on his own—without the aid of his trust fund and despite the constant disapproval from his parents.

When he hears a voice that sounds like sin and sex on his answering machine, begging for help with her crumbling historical home, Jake pushes Eve Lovegood's project to the top of the pile just so he can meet the woman who belongs to that voice. Jake knows it's love at first sight, and that's hard for him to admit considering he's done his best to never get caught in the marriage trap, but softening Eve's heart is a challenge he never expected. She wants nothing to do with the man who shows so many similarities to her dead husband—a man she came to hate in the end. But Jake takes his love to new levels and romances Eve on her nightly radio show, ultimately making her fall in love with him in front of millions.
