Most observers agree that Rainer won her Oscar as the result of her moving and poignant performance in just one, single scene in the picture, the famous telephone scene in which the broken-hearted Held congratulates Ziegfeld over the telephone on his upcoming marriage to Billie Burke while trying to retain her composure and her dignity. During the scene, the camera is entirely focused on Rainer, and she delivers a tour-de-force performance. Seventy years later, it remains one of the most famous scenes in movie history.
In Ko« hln, a town of monks and bones, And pavements fang'd with murderous stones And rags, and hags, and hideous wenches; I counted two and seventy stenches, All well defined, and several stinks!

Yet through Alexander (the Great) Bactria and the Caucasus learned to revere the gods of the Greeks ... Alexander established more than seventy cities among savage tribes, and sowed all Asia with Greek magistracies ...

The choice was mine, and mine completely. / I could have any prize that I desired. / I could burn with the splendor of the brightest fire, / Or else... or else I could choose time. / Remember, I was very young then, / And a year was forever and a day. / So what use could fifty, sixty, seventy be? / I saw the lights and I was on my way. / And how I lived, how they shone, / But how soon the lights were gone.
