Rating:

A classic of unrequited love, based on the best-selling Rachel Field novel set in 19th-century France. Governess Davis falls in love with nobleman Boyer who has engaged her to care for his children. Litvak's smooth, understated treatment produces restrained, ageless performances from both

stars. Oscar nominee Barbara O'Neil (best remembered as Scarlett O'Hara's mother in GWTW) almost steals the picture in a serpentine portrayal of Boyer's possessive, neurotic wife. This moody, elaborate production, greatly enhanced by its Steiner score, is a deft example of the "women's

picture."
