Henriette Deluzy-Desportes: You will think I am very silly I'm afraid, but standing here like this with the snow falling reminds of something I used to know. Do you remember a little round glass globe that Duc de Praslin: Oh yes, I know, with a snow scene inside. We had a paper weight on a desk at home like that. You shook it and the snow whirled around out from nowhere in a blinding storm. Duc de Praslin: And if you looked closely enough the whole world seemed to be obliberated and shut out.
Pierre: There on the left, the lights in her rooms are burning, and there on the right, the lights in his room are burning and between them is that long passage where the lights never burn. Suppose some night you saw that passage lighted? Would you share your feeling then with all the world? Pierre: I'll go.
I'll go, because I see it's too late to give you any warning. Your caught in the net and you don't even wish to escape. Goodnight mademoiselle. Duchesse de Praslin: Theo, last night I poured my heart out to you in a letter. I crept to your doorway which I am foridden to enter and stooped in humility and pushed it under the seal! Duchesse de Praslin: But look! You didn't even open it! Oh Theo, do you suppose this empty pretense is what I hoped for? Lastnight I begged for you to come to me!
I hoped we might start this journey today united as we once were! Theo, Theo! Have you completely forgotten the life we once shared together?
Duchesse de Praslin: Oh no! You only say that! In reality you delight in torturing me! As one day heaven willing, I will torture you!
See a Problem?
Duchesse de Praslin: [She grabs for his hands and he pulls it away] Does even the touch of my hands feel you with aversion? Duchesse de Praslin: It must be aversion you feel since you always avoid me, never giving me a moment's thought or attention! Duc de Praslin: I have no wish to avoid you Frances. I would talk to you by the hour if we could do so with calmness and sanity, but it always ends the same.
Duchesse de Praslin: Wait! Oh how cruel you are my darling! Take the children! Take them! I care nothing about them, about anyone but you! If I promise never again to torment you with my anger, with my unreasoning mistrust Sibyl Harris Mlle. Janet Beecher Miss Haines. Montagu Love Marechal Sebastiani. George Coulouris Charpentier.

The producers thought her appearance would be a bit too uncooth for viewers to endure, but that decision robbed O'Neil of a far more effective characterization.
As Henriette, Davis is much more subdued than normal, and her performance is genuinely affecting: another victorious portrait added to her quickly growing gallery of unforgettable heroines and vixens. Charles Boyer is fine as the Duc; he and Davis have a most interesting, classy chemistry between them.
