All This, and Heaven Too

Synopsis: When lovely and virtuous governess Henriette Deluzy comes to educate the children of the debonair Duc de Praslin, a royal subject to King Louis-Philippe and the husband of the volatile and obsessive Duchesse de Praslin, 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.

You must accept my resignation.

- What?

- They have found out.

- I was a fool to think they wouldn't.

- What have they found out?

I should have told you before

I accepted this post dishonorably.

I let you take me in

as Henriette Desportes...

when you're also Henriette Deluzy,

the notorious Mademoiselle D.

Is that it, my dear?

You knew?

Naturally when Mr. Field recommended you,

he told me everything.

We agreed that old scandals

might be forgotten in your case.

- It was you, Henry?

- Miss Haines...

...would you allow me to speak

to Mademoiselle Desportes?

Certainly. And I hope whatever

you decide will be for the best.

It isn't any use, Henry.

Though you've done me this last kindness,

even you must realize it is hopeless.


That girl asked me how

to spell Conciergerie. That child...

All that is past.

No. It's crossed the ocean

and followed me.

It's down there in that schoolroom now

in the way that girl looked at me.

Henry, I have nothing left

to fight with anymore.

Yes, you have.

If you could only see yourself

as I know you can be.

Proud, looking up with clear eyes,

ashamed of nothing.

If you can face your conscience,

you can face those children.

And don't beg for their respect,

demand it.

If I only had your courage.


Please, Henriette.

I suppose I owe it to you to try.

Mademoiselle Deluzy.

This sign will teach her a lesson.

- Why do they call her Mademoiselle D?

- Her name is Desportes or Deluzy.

- I wonder if the duke was as handsome...

- Shh. Here she is.

The rest of the lesson today

will be conducted in English.

You may lay aside your books,

for it is to be entirely oral.

I am going to tell you a true story.

Perhaps I am wrong in telling it to you...

...but in a few years you will be women
