ABOUT THE PRODUCER
Darryl F. Zanuck (1902-1979), produced three films that won
the Best Picture Oscar: HOW GREEN WAS MY VALLEY (41), GENTLEMAN'S
AGREEMENT (47), and ALL ABOUT EVE (50).
He started as a writer in the twenties, and then became Production
Chief for Warners Brothers in 1931, then in 1933 he co-founded 20th
Century, which merged with Fox in 1935. He was Production VP of
20th Century-Fox from 1935 to 1952, and then he became an independent
producer. In 1962 he returned as executive president. Darryl F.
Zanuck is considered by some as Hollywood's most efficient mogul.
His other works include: IN OLD CHICAGO, DRUMS ALONG THE MOHAWK,
THE GRAPES OF WRATH, TWELVE O'CLOCK HIGH, VIVA ZAPATA, ISLAND IN
THE SUN, and THE LONGEST DAY.
NOTES & TRIVA
Joseph L. Mankiewicz received the Screenplay Oscar. While Edith
Head and Charles LeMaire was awarded the Oscar for B&W Costume
Design. ALL ABOUT EVE also got the Oscar for Best Sound Recording.
It was based on a short story, "The Wisdom of Eve", by
Mary Orr. Some say (but denied by all) the story was based on Tallulah
Bette Davis met her fourth husband, actor Gary Merrill, during the
filming of this film.
