There are TWO Jenny Hagers... Innocent... Evil!  (taglines)

Jenny Hager[edit]

  • I wanted so many things. I wanted the whole world, but... it was really only you!


Lena Tempest: Honey, listen, with your looks you don't have to worry. You can get the youngest and best-looking man on the pier.
Jenny Hager: I don't want the youngest. I want the richest.

Jenny Hager: But... the rain. You know what happens to the roads in the rain.
John Evered: Yes, they get very muddy, but they don't change the direction.

Jenny Hager: Your mother must be a wonderful woman. I hope that someday you'll say that I'm just like her.
John Evered: That won't be easy. Mother had nine boys.

Jenny Hager: Why does everything frighten you? You're going to make me very angry. And if I get angry and go on wanting you, I might tell him what happened between us.
Ephraim Poster: Nothing's happened between us.
Jenny Hager: No, but which of us will he believe?


  • There are TWO Jenny Hagers... Innocent... Evil!
  • So shocking she could only be spoken about in whispers!
  • "There was something in Jenny Hager that many men sensed...and it set men burning..."
