On stage since age 17, British actress Rosalie Crutchley established her predilection for gloomy, tragic roles early on. She set a precedent for her film career by being killed off halfway through her first film Take My Life (1948). Slight, dark and sharp-featured, Rosalie found herself typed as mystery women, wronged wives and sinister housekeepers; among her best film assignments were A Tale of Two Cities (1958) (as Madame LeFarge), and The Return (1974). Like many "pigeonholed" film actors and actresses, Rosalie Crutchley enjoyed a wider range of roles on stage and in TV.

Mrs. Dudley says: I set dinner on the dining room sideboard at 6. I clear up in the morning. I have breakfast for you at 9. I don't wait on people. I don't stay after I set out the dinner, not after it begins to get dark. I leave before the dark.

Eleanor Vance says: Your husband?

Mrs. Dudley says: We live over in town, miles away.

Eleanor Vance says: Yes.

Mrs. Dudley says: So there won't be anyone around if you need help.

Eleanor Vance says: I understand.

Mrs. Dudley says: We couldn't hear you; in the night.

Eleanor Vance says: Do you have any idea when Dr. Markway...

Mrs. Dudley says: (cuts her off) - No one could. No one lives any nearer than town. No one will come any nearer than that.

Eleanor Vance says: I know.

Mrs. Dudley says: In the night; in the dark. - (she grins)
