In this chapter Rosemary makes the trip to Monte Carlo to see the producer Earl Brady, "nearly as sulkily as it was possible for her to be." But once there, she feels comfortable in the familiar environment of a movie set. She does not really care for Brady, but has mixed emotions because he so desires her and wants her to make a picture with him.
Again Rosemary's rather childlike responses to the world show up. She enjoys the fact Brady admires her so much, and she even feels drawn to him for a moment. Yet she knows she will "forget him half an hour after she left him."
A rather cryptic paragraph ends this chapter, referring to Mrs. Speers as tired, with a reference to people on their "death beds." Is she sick, and is this why she is so intent on setting her daughter up for success in all aspects of life? Or is it a reference to her having outlived two husbands? This idea, or Mrs. Speers's personal life outside Rosemary, is never followed up on in the novel.
