Lotte Lenya as "Contessa Magda Terribili-Gonzales"
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.
