Marian Marsh as Trilby O'Farrell

  • (Marian Marsh) "Svengali, I've tried to love you, but I --"
  • (John Barrymore) "Ja, ja, ja, ja -- But you know very well why you can't. It is the magnificent young Englander. The head of the Purity Brigade. Sir Galahad. This stiff-necked little Billie -- What is he, Liebchen? With his silly paints in one hand, and these twiddling brushes of pig's bristles in the other -- What does he amount to, compared to Svengali? Ah, he paints his silly pictures and sends them to London, where they hang up on the wall like -- dead soldiers on parade. And the people pass in a long procession; "ah"; and yawn."
  • (John Barrymore) "Svengali will go to London himself, where he will be all alone on the platform. And princesses, and countesses, and serene highnesses will fling him their jewels, and applaud him, and invite him to their palaces. And he will take you with him, Liebchen, and never look at them. Da, we could be so happy."
  • (Marian Marsh) "But I -- I don't like palaces."
  • (Marian Marsh) "What'd he do?"
  • (Lumsden Hare) "He hypnotized you."
  • (Donald Crisp) "Yeah, and don't you ever let him do it again. Those fella's can make you do anything and say anything they want. Lie, steal, anything."

  • (Lumsden Hare) "And where are you going?"
  • (Bramwell Fletcher) "After him."
  • (Lumsden Hare) "Svengali's not running away from you."
  • (Bramwell Fletcher) "Not from me, Taffy, but from his fear of the day when his spell over Trilby will be broken, as it was for a moment last night."
  • (Donald Crisp) "Eh? And what will you do when you catch up with him?"
  • (Bramwell Fletcher) "Just wait till the day comes. I'll get her back; - if I have to follow them 'round the world."

Luis Alberni as Gecko

  • (Luis Alberni) "Maestro, I don't know what we are going to do. We have borrowed from everyone we know. We cannot go back to Bernard's. He will throw us out."
  • (John Barrymore) "Oh, possibly, possibly -- But there are other people -- Our English friends; - they have not enjoyed the fragrance of our society, for a week. We will go there."
  • (Luis Alberni) "But Maestro, the last time we were there, Monsieur Taffy, and Monsieur the Laird, and even little Billie -- he's so kind."
  • (John Barrymore) "Now listen. Gecko. You know, the trouble with you is you have not sufficient optimism. Little things discourage you. Remember, in the bright lexicon of youth, there is no such word -- as "Fail.""
