Job Skeffington (Claude Rains): "A woman is beautiful when she's loved, and only then." // Fanny Trellis Skeffington (Bette Davis): "Nonsense. A woman is beautiful when she has eight hours' sleep and goes to the beauty parlor every day. And bone structure has a lot to do with it, too." -- from Mr. Skeffington (1944) directed by Vincent Sherman
