Movie Info

Vivien Leigh plays Karen Stone, a middle-aged actress whose career is in a tailspin. To assuage her hurt feelings, Karen goes on a vacation to Rome with her husband, who dies en route. Her best friend (Coral Browne) compassionately arranges for a young Italian escort (read: gigolo) to keep Karen from wallowing in her grief in Rome. The man hired for the task is sneering, contemptuous Pablo di Leo, played by Warren Beatty. Despite Pablo's rude behavior, the lonely Karen throws herself at him,

As the aging actress, Vivien Leigh is good but Warren Beatty is miscast as the gigolo in this weak screen adaptation of Tennessee William's novella.

The tagline says that they called it love and it was for sale, to which the appropriate response is that one hopes they kept the receipt.

The prose is so purple and the tone so overripe that ... what wants to be mature, sensual romance-novel boilerplate becomes instead a plodding exercise in intriguingly cast camp.

Audience Reviews for The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone

A very real side of Roman life is shown in this film ~ love for sale. In the train station or on the beaches of Ostia, the ragazzi barter with male or female for cash. Young men parade themselves in hopes of bedding old, wealthy, foreign woman. Vivien Leigh is haunting in Williams' treatise on withering beauty, aging and diminishing chances for love. While Beatty's looks fit the part of a gigolo, he is unbelievable as an Italian, an unfortunate miscast. Leigh's abandonment brings the film to a chilling conclusion.
