MINI BIO:

For six decades Danielle Darrieux played pretty well every kind of woman, with perhaps a slight preference for the experienced woman with something to teach the younger man. Made a star by the first version of Mayerling, she has made fewer international appearances than her contemporaries, but that was France's gain, and she remained beautiful into middle age.

Danielle Darrieux Quotes:

Comtesse Louise de...: [praying for her lover who is about to go on a duel with her husband] Save him, dear saint. You know that we were guilty in thought only. And what are thoughts? Will you save him, my dear saint? I thank you in advance. Blessed be your name in heaven as on earth. Amen.


Nectenabus: There were signs of greatness at his birth! Quakes and storms shook the earth - and in the skies, a star fell... and two eagles perched upon the roof of the Queen's chamber. And in far-off Asia... the Temple of Ephesus was struck by lightning and burnt to the ground.
Philip of Macedonia: And how did you read these signs, soothsayer?
Nectenabus: The two eagles - that he was born to rule two worlds. The burning of the Temple - that a torch was kindled that day that would one day consume all the world. And this torch... your son.
Philip of Macedonia: And the falling of the star?
Olympias: That a god was born to me... *of* a god.


[repeated lines]
Comtesse Louise de...: I don't love you, I don't love you...
