The Great Ziegfeld (1936) Poster

Luise Rainer: Anna Held



  • Anna Held : [on the phone with Ziegfeld after learning of his marriage to Billie Burke]  Hello, Flo... Yes. Here's Anna... I'm so happy for you today, I could not help calling you and congratulate you... Wonderful, Flo! Never better in my whole life!... I'm so excited about my new plans! I'm going to Paris... Yes, for a few weeks, and then I can get back, and then I'm doing a new show, and... Oh, it's all so wonderful! I'm so happy!... Yes... And I hope you are happy, too... Yes?... Oh, I'm so glad for you, Flo... Sounds funny for ex-husband and ex-wife to tell how happy they are, oui?... Yes, Flo... Goodbye, Flo... Goodbye...

    [She hangs up] 

    Anna Held : Darling...

    [she falls to her bed, sobbing] 

    Marie : My poor, petite! If you love him so, why did you divorce him?

    Anna Held : Because I thought it would bring him back to me. I was sure that it would bring him back to me.

    [she cries]
