Goofs:
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): As he lays sick, the governess has Raynald count the segments of tangerine. She starts out counting the first three with him. She interrupts her own count to speak with the Duke, but Raynald continues on. When the governess resumes the count with Raynald, the actual tangerine piece is segment number 7. She mistakenly calls it number 10 and continues with the count from there.See more »
Quotes:
Duchesse de Praslin:Mademoiselle Deluzy, just a moment.
Henriette Deluzy-Desportes:But madame, I'm supposed to... monsieur's downstairs...
Duchesse de Praslin:Monsieur's downstairs, yes. I am here to make sure that you understand this time you've gone too far, mademoiselle. You are to leave this house into which you've brought evil and sin!
Henriette Deluzy-Desportes:Yes, madame, there is evil in this house, but it was here before I came. Twas not I who brought it.
Duchesse de Praslin:What intrigue there is beneath that mask of innocence! It was not enough for you to be a governess! No, you had to conspire to become the mistress of my household! To steal from me everything that was mine, including the affections of my children!
Henriette Deluzy-Desportes:Affections can not be stolen, madam, they are given freely or not at all. If you'd ever been a mother to your children, if you'd earned their love instead of driving them away nothing I could've done would ever make them turn away from you to...
Duchesse de Praslin:You've used them shamelessly to attract him! To separate him from me!
Henriette Deluzy-Desportes:Is it possible you've finally deceived yourself into believing...
Duchesse de Praslin:Have you not one shred of decency? How dare he'd entice you to come here to confess that you and he... to admit openly without delicacy that you...
Henriette Deluzy-Desportes:Why do you stop? I challenge you to accuse me of what you know is not true!

surprisingly moving soap opera of sorts, 1 August 2005
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

This is among my favorite Bette Davis movies. While not perfect, the story and romance suck you right in and make it hard to stop watching.

Ms. Davis plays against type, as she is the almost sickeningly wonderful nanny who ultimately beguiles married Charles Boyer. You see, Bette is hired to care for his children because his wife is a self-centered hypochondriac and has less maternal instincts than the average hamster. However, despite Boyer falling for the nanny, the nanny is chaste and won't consider breaking up the marriage--even if it is such an unhappy one. Eventually, the wife realizes that her husband has fallen head over heels and what she does in response is too good to divulge--it would help to ruin the movie for you.

If you want great acting, a tight script and a bit of a soapy romance (and who doesn't now and again?), give this movie a try.
