All This, and Heaven Too is a 1940 epic from Warner Brothers intended as that studio's answer to Gone With the Wind from the year before. Based on a novel by Rachel Field, it tells the story of an American high school French teacher, Henriette Deluzy-Desportes (Bette Davis), who recounts to her students her time spent in a French prison. Told in flashback, Henriette is hired as a governess for the wealthy Duc de Praslin's (Charles Boyer) family. Praslin's wife, the Duchesse de Praslin (Barbara O'Neil), is a selfish and inattentive parent to the Duke's children. When the Duke sees how kind and gentle Henriette is with the children he falls in love with her. Although the Duke never has an affair with Henriette, he reluctantly stays away from her after hearing about local gossip spreading around town. When the Duchesse attempts to get her revenge on Henriette, the Duke comes to her rescue but causes everyone even more trouble. All This and Heaven, Too is directed by Anatole Litvak from a screenplay by Casey Robinson.moreless
