Academy Award winners Warren Beatty and Vivien Leigh star with Lotte Lenya in this film adaptation of Tennessee Williams' novel. Middle-aged American actress Karen Stone (Leigh) takes an apartment in Rome after her career fades and her wealthy husband dies. Intending to take advantage of the lonely widow's money, the Contessa Magda (Lenya), introduces Karen to Paolo (Beatty), a handsome young gigolo. But when the Contessa receives no financial return from the liaison, she introduces Paolo to another American--leaving Karen Stone emotionally devastated ... and susceptible to even less scrupulous young men.
