its on AAE (all about Eve)
The film conveys that the pursuit of fame, rather than fame itself, may be a catalyst for corruptive behaviour. While Max Fabian is a renowned insider in the theatrical realm, there is a juxtaposition between him and Eve in terms of their consciences and interactions with others. Max disregards people in society who “beat their brains out for a buck” and declares that “it is friends that count”, mounting a diversion from the corruptive nature of Eve. By having ability to maintain genuine friendships, such as that with Margo, Mankiewicz highlights how fame itself does not need to be affiliated with and connote exploitation. Furthermore, Max’s interaction with Miss Casswell, where he announces to “leave it to him” when asked to “get [her a drink]” demonstrates his kind-hearted character and tendency to think well of everyone, while not being blinded by the thrill of fame. In a contrasting light, Eve “[imagines] to know…that hundreds of people love [her]” which displays how her concept of fame is mistaken with acceptance and love, and her chase of applause is symbolic of the satisfaction of her yearnings. Moreover, after receiving the prestigious Sarah Siddons Award, Eve undresses out of her costume, representing how fame, for Eve, is provisional and does not deliver emotional fulfilment or long-lasting satisfaction, therefore establishing a dichotomy between expectation and reality. Thus, Mankiewicz praises that unchecked pursuit and longing for fame may generate corruptive consequences, rather than the short-lived fame itself.
