Footsteps on the Ceiling
Starring Bette Davis, Anne Baxter and George Sanders with Thelma Ritter, Celeste Holm and Marilyn Monroe
“Footsteps on the Ceiling” is a meditation on ambition and careerism utilizing altered footage from All About Eve, with a soupçon of reflection on the themes of memory, film within gay culture and video image processing.
In the film All About Eve, three plays become part of the plot: “Aged in Wood” is the play that features Margo Channing (Bette Davis). “Remembrance” is the play that Eve Harrington (Anne Baxter) supposedly saw Margo perform in San Francisco. “Footsteps on the Ceiling” is the play for which Eve wins the Sarah Siddons Award.
