Dr. Mabuse the Gambler (1922) Poster

Gertrude Welcker: Countess Dusy Told



  • Countess Dusy Told : I have learned of something that until recently I didn't believe, that there still apparently exists in this world something more valuable and more deeply moving than the strongest thrill. Love , , ,

    Dr. Mabuse : There is no love. There is only desire! There is no happiness. There is only the will to power!

  • Prosecutor von Wenk : What's a woman like yourself doing in such a place, amongst pushers, gamblers and call girls?

    Gräfin Dusy Told : We have weary hearts, Mr. von Wenk. We need thrills of a very special nature in order to endure this life.

  • Countess Dusy Told : I'm afraid there's absolutely nothing in this world that can hold my interest in the long run. Everything that can be observed from a car, from a theater box or from the window, is part repulsive, part uninteresting, and, at least, boring.

    Dr. Mabuse : You're right, Countess. Nothing in this world is interesting in the long run, except for one thing: Gambling with people and with the fates of people.

  • Countess Dusy Told : I prefer to observe the passions that gambling arouses, reflected in the mirror of others, without coming into close contact with such players themselves.

  • Countess Dusy Told : I need in life a strong breath of extraordinary thrills and adventures; but, I fear such things have become extinct.

  • Countess Dusy Told : The smart thing is to give in.
