- Bonjour, madame.

- Bonjour.

I want a small suite, please. Must be quiet.

I have a very charming one

facing the courtyard.

Will Madame please sign her name?

Merci, madame.

To save inconvenience later,

- will you kindly leave your passport here?

- Passport?

- I showed my passport at the airport.

- I'm sorry, but it's a government regulation.


Travelling's becoming

quite complicated, isn't it?

Merci, madame. S'il vous plat.

- Bonjour, madame.

- Will you show madame to 54?

Par ici, s'il vous plat.

Is there anything wrong?

Not at all.

Everything will be all right, I assure you.

- Mrs Brown.

- Thank you.

- Trente-cinq francs.

- Don't you speak English?

Pas Anglais, monsieur.

Merci, monsieur. Merci.

- Don't I get anything back?

- Merci, monsieur. Merci.

No, no, money. Er... change.

- Er... back.

- Merci, monsieur. Merci beaucoup.

Oh, don't rub it in.

You want me to wait?

Merci beaucoup.

Amazing! You know,

I'm going to like Bolshevism.

Why, could you earn your own living?

No, that's the bad part about Bolshevism.

But it has merit.

Without the Revolution,

the Grand Duchess would be in Russia

instead of providing such a delightful salon.

And perhaps I should never have met you.

One for Your Highness.

- Who is this Mr Halton?

- I've never seen him before.

I think, an Englishman. He brings

best regards from Captain Buckler.

Captain Buckler? Oh, yes.

Let him wait in the reception room.

I'll be a few minutes.

The Grand Duchess will be delighted

to see you, but it will be a few moments.

If you will be so kind as to step in here.

- Rue de la Tour, 314.

- Pardon, madame.

- Oh, Rue de la Tour, trois quatorze.

- Ah, oui, madame.

Whom may I announce, madame?

Oh... Just say an old friend.

Listen, my man, this is very important.

How can I reach Miss Field?

What's that you say?

3467. What is it you want?

- Pardon me.

- Who's playing the piano?

- The Englishman.

- I'd forgotten him.

Pardon me.

There is a lady waiting to see you.

- Who is she?

- She said, an old friend.

Tell her to leave her address

and don't let her in again.

All I want is a cup of tea and a sandwich.

- Now!

- Mm-hm.

- It isn't possible.

- It is I.


You look marvellous. You know, I haven't

seen you, not since I opened the salon.

- And I haven't heard from you in...

- In six years, Anna.

Six? Why didn't you write to me?

You know I always like

to keep track of my friends.

That's why I didn't write to you.

Oh! Oh.

Well, now, tell me everything.

How was Rome?

Rome? I haven't been in Rome for years.

Has your husband been transferred?

Husband? Oh, you mean Savoldi?

- That's right.

- Oh, I didn't marry him.

- I broke the engagement.

- Why?

- Forgotten.

- Oh.

- What are you doing now?

- At the moment, I'm in Paris.

By the way, I'm not in Paris. Can I trust you?

I swear.

Anna... Im in a rather difficult situation.

- Serious?

- Very.

I really came to Paris to ask your advice.

- You know I always give sensible advice.

- Yes, I know.

Driving up here, I realised that

I don't want any sensible advice.

I want no sense, no logic, no reason.

It can't help me at the moment.

- What's going on in Paris?

- Well...

Will you excuse me?

Hello. Hell...

Oh, it's you.

Look, may I call you back in ten minutes?

- Do you want me to go out?

- Just a moment.

You're so understanding.

- How do you do?

- How do you do?

So kind of you to see me.

I bring you best regards

from Captain Buckler.

- Captain Buckler?

- You remember Willy Buckler.

He always talked so much about you, and...

He told me, "If you want an amusing time

Samson Raphaelson

Samson Raphaelson (1894–1983) was a leading American playwright, screenwriter and fiction writer. While working as an advertising executive in New York, he wrote a short story based on the early life of Al Jolson, called The Day of Atonement, which he then converted into a play, The Jazz Singer. This would become the first talking picture, with Jolson as its star. He then worked as a screenwriter with Ernst Lubitsch on sophisticated comedies like Trouble in Paradise, The Shop Around the Corner, and Heaven Can Wait, and with Alfred Hitchcock on Suspicion. His short stories appeared in The Saturday Evening Post and other leading magazines, and he taught creative writing at the University of Illinois. more…
