SHE will never let you forget her!  (taglines)


Evelyn Heath: You make her very beautiful.
Douglas Proctor: I had a lot to start with. Until I found her I had to use two different models.
Evelyn Heath: How do you mean?
Douglas Proctor: One from the neck down and one from the neck up, but Miriam's got it both ways.
Miriam: I didn't know you cared darling.

Ann Proctor: That's a cheap chamber maid trick and I won't stand for it.
Hilda: If you would just let me go please ma'am.
Ann Proctor: I'll let you go for good if I catch you doing a thing like that again.

Evelyn Heath: You always feel the sea out their. Rough and cruel and mean.
Aunt Martha: Well, in Winter it is.
Evelyn Heath: I like it that way though.

Evelyn Heath: You're sending me away because you're jealous of me!
Ann Proctor: Why should I be jealous?
Evelyn Heath: Because he prefers me to you, because you've lost him.
Ann Proctor: You nasty little fool, you're in love with my husband.

Evelyn Heath: You can paint me and my love for you. You made me strong so I could be like this.
Douglas Proctor: Little Saint Cecilia... no wonder I couldn't paint a saint.

Aunt Martha: How can you do this to him? You can't really love him.
Evelyn Heath: It's odd how sure you can be of today and so unsure of tomorrow. Today I love him very much. You'll be lonely for a while but you'll get used to it. I've been lonely all my life. Only one thing I regret, I would've liked this house, quite pretty for a little one.
