Plot Summary

In this adaptation of Françoise Sagan's best selling novel, Paula is a beautiful and highly successful 40-year-old businesswoman. She is deeply in love with Roger, her mature consort of five years. Roger is a very charming gallant who loves Paula but is too selfish to give up his freedom to be promiscuous. When Paula meets Phillip, the 24-year-old immature lawyer son of one of her rich clients, he falls hopelessly in love with the glamorous, sympathetic older woman and insists that the age difference will be no barrier to a romance. Paula resists the young man's persistent advances, but she finally succumbs when Roger initiates yet another affair with one of his young Maisies. An affair begins, and society does not approve. Written by Mike Rogers

Did You Know?

Trivia One of the first scenes to be filmed called for Ingrid Bergman and Anthony Perkins to share a passionate kiss. Bergman had found a similar situation while she was filming Gaslight (1944) extremely uncomfortable. In that film, she was forced to shoot an intimate and romantic scene with Charles Boyer on the first day of production, minutes after meeting the man. Bergman so disliked the experience of kissing a man she had just met on screen that she vowed never to do it again. When she was once again asked to film a romantic scene with a man she hardly knew for this film, Bergman took action. She asked Perkins to practice kissing her privately, in her dressing room, before their scene was filmed on camera. According to Bergman, Perkins obliged, and by the time they performed their scene in front of the camera neither actor found the scene uncomfortable. See more »

Quotes Roger Demarest: You certainly brightened up that party. It was dying, until young love came along. Now they've got something to talk about. Have you heard about Van der Besh's interior decorator? She did over the apartment and seduced her son at no extra charge. I think you've got something there Paula. If you'll go in to do the young master's bedroom, why not do the young master? Makes the work so much more interesting.
