Lady of the Tropics (1939)
Cecil Cunningham: Countess Berichi
Alfred Z. Harrison : [opening lines] Well, here we are. It's good to see old Saigon again.
Mrs. Hazlitt : I hope your Saigon is going to be better than Manilla.
Passenger on Yacht : They call it a jungle in a silk hat.
Countess Berichi : As far as I'm concerned, I'm sick of elephants and I'm frightfully sick of people with bare feet.
Father Antoine : His father is French. His mother is a native.
Countess Berichi : I adore half-caste! They're so vicious and fascinating.
Father Antoine : No, no. They're not vicious. Somehow they remind me of, well, flying fish. Very harmless. Born to the water, they spend half their life trying to soar above it. Only to fall back again into the sea and die there.
Countess Berichi : Good taste often goes with evil.
