Yeah! They don't make them like this anymore! Vivien Leigh was always a deliciously sexy lady,sort of an arrogant piece of thinking mans crumpet,and in this story she positively reeks with lust as she 's drawn to realise that,alone in the world, her golden days are over!
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!

Beautifully shot and subtly acted. Manages to be simultaneously funny, sad and disturbing -- a rare feat. Vivien Leigh's Karen Stone and Lotte Lenya's 'Contessa' are mesmerising, but even the minor characters are finely nuanced and memorable.

I liked it for the fact that Vivien Leigh was in it, but it is not one of her best ones.
