Her First Affaire (1932) Poster

Ida Lupino: Ann Brent



  • Brian : Now, who do you love? Carey Merton or me?

    Anne : I've never met Carey Merton...

    Brian : Then it must be me.

    Anne : I bet he's fascinating.

    Brian : I bet he's potty!

    Anne : I bet he knows how to make love.

    Brian : Meaning, I don't?

    Anne : Oh, you're not bad, for an amateur.

    Brian : I suppose he's a professional?

    Anne : Of the highest rank.

    Brian : Hmm. Rank is right!

    Anne : You should read some of his books and learn some new ideas.

    Brian : 'haven't learnt all the old ones yet.

    Anne : Oh, strange. Didn't your granny teach you?

    Brian : I scarcely remember.

    Anne : Dear me, I thought you were quite old friends. I always think of you as grandma's boy.

    Brian : Just the same, you love me.

    Anne : Do I?

    Brian : You wouldn't promise to marry me, if you didn't.

    Anne : Well, marriage is a little old-fashioned, isn't it?

    Brian : Is that what Carey Merton thinks?

    Anne : He understands.

    Brian : What?

    Anne : Me. Every woman.

    Brian : Now you're talking absolute rot.

    Anne : You approve of convention, of course? A man can be free but a woman must be chained. Well, Carey Merton thinks differently. He isn't stuffy.

    Brian : He ought to be horse-whipped! And you ought to be spanked.

    Anne : Brian!

    Brian : I'm sorry, Ann.

    [grabbing her book] 

    Brian : But somehow this old fossil infuriated me.

    Anne : If he were old, he couldn't write so beautifully.

    Brian : If he were young, he wouldn't write so disgustingly.

    Anne : We'll settle this, Brian.

    Brian : How?

    Anne : We'll call on him and find out.
