Movie Info

Disheartened by suggestions that she is too old to for her role in a play, 50-year-old actress Karen Stone (Vivien Leigh) travels to Rome. After her husband dies on the plane, Karen rents an apartment and meets a conniving countess (Lotte Lenya) who introduces her to Paolo (Warren Beatty), a young Italian gigolo. Karen and Paolo begin a steamy affair, but the countess insists on paying for Paolo's services and ensures that the romance will not last long.

Audience Reviews for The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone

  • Feb 26, 2017
    Very nearly a comedy in the same vein as Reefer Madness, this cautionary tale told to keep older women from even considering younger men is exaggerated to the point of rue. Warren Bratty interestingly plays an Italian so vain I bet he thinks this song is about him. Pass it by unless you could use some sad in your life

    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.
