Synopsis / Plot
Bette Davis stars as the lovely and virtuous governess Henriette Deluzy in the film version of Rachel Field's epic historical romance novel ALL THIS AND HEAVEN TOO. Charles Boyer is charming and ultimately heartbreaking as the debonair Duc de Praslin, a royal subject to King Louis-Philippe and the husband of the volatile and obsessive Duchesse de Praslin (intensely played by Barbara O'Neil). When Henriette comes to educate the duke and duchess's children, she instantly incurs the wrath of her mistress, who is insanely jealous of anyone who comes near her estranged husband. Though she saves the duchess's little son from a near-death illness and warms herself to all the children, she is nevertheless dismissed by the vengeful duchess. Meanwhile, the attraction between the duke and Henriette continues to grow, eventually leading to tragedy. Director Anatole Litvak's gripping drama bears the distinction of featuring Davis in a unusually innocent and endearing role.
