      All This And Heaven Too features one of my favorite actresses, Bette Davis. The movie was made in 1940 when Bette was young and still very beautiful.

      The story involves Bette portraying a governess, Henriette, hired to care for the children of a French Duke and Duchess.

      The Duke is played by Charles Boyer and the

      Duchess is Barbara O’Neill.

      It’s apparent from the start that the Duke is enamored with Henriette, and he is not happy with his wife.

      Of course the standard story unfolds as the Duchess grows unhappier and doesn’t want Henriette around.

      In a frightening scene, the Duke kills his wife, although this is not shown, just the drama ...

      • and passion conveyed in the Duchess eyes as she draws her last breath.

        Henriette is blamed for the murder, and promptly jailed.

        In the end, there is a surprise that I won’t give away, but I do recommend you watch this thriller.

        I adore classic movies that rely heavily upon great acting, facial expressions and words spoken

        only through the character’s eyes.

        Bette Davis is excellent in this film (as are the other actors) and I had no idea the film even existed until today.

        This is a great story and the entire family will enjoy it, although I would not recommend for younger children, as they probably will not understand what is transpiring.
