Film Genres - Blog About Eve

Even though she wasn't given screen credit it's obvious that the film All About Eve is adapted from Mary Orr's short story "The Wisdom of Eve" (which was actually taken from a story she heard from someone else).  The story within a story approach is a similarity between the two works, though there are many differences.  In your opinion (backing up with specifics) what adaptation choices did Joseph Mankiewicz make that were driven more by the medium (film versus fiction) and what were more individual choices he made as an artist.  Be sure to think about both similarities and differences.
