Import from The Netherlands with English soundtrack
Widow Karen Stone is rich and beautiful. Her success as an actress are only a memory. She lives alone in a luxury apartment overlooking the steps of Rome where romances happen. And she waits. Oscar winners Vivien Leigh and Warren Beatty are the lady and the lover in this tender adaptation of a short story by Tennessee Williams, directed by Broadway veteran Jose Quintero. Leigh won her second Oscar for A Streetcar Named Desire, also from Williams. Their renewed cooperation creates a similar spell - romantic, sinister, and almost explosive. Two characters throwing oil on the fire by the main players. Lotte Lenya, nominated for an Oscar for best supporting actress as the countess who romances "arranger" in which she has a financial interest and Carol Brown and Karen scheming best friend. Picture: 16:9 Sound: Mono 1.0 Language: English, French, Italian Subtitles: Dutch, English, French, Italian, Arabic, Romanian

In real life Ms Leigh sadly developed significant psychological difficulties,became a manic depressive,and we are told,even developed tendencies to nymphomania,all of which caused severe problems for her in her relationships,and particularly in her great marriage to Sir Lawrence Olivier.. Against the background of these tragic circumstances,which contributed to her untimely death from tuberculosis,I've always wondered how much these events provided the generally "dark"aspect she brought to her later roles, in this film and also her final movie, "Ship of Fools",with Lee Marvin. A thought to conjure with.
Apart from Ms Leigh's towering performance here,a young Warren Beatty is a perfect match for her,and amply demonstrates exactly why he is such a name to be reckoned with,even to this day.
A highly recommended,classic movie,go for it!
