VERY GOOD 1964 British film with terrific everything - including fab performances by Gina Lollobrigida, Sean Connery (and more).
High quality cinematography, plot, etc.
Glad I discovered this and watched it for the first time.

Excellent movie to see. Beautiful scenery and mansion located in Great Britain. Gina Lollobrigida plays a great actress in "A Woman of Straw". I have only seen her in another movie the "Trapeze" but she was very good in this movie

I agree with the DVD box when it states " A stylish and suspenseful thriller that is beautifully shot (in color) by the legendary cinematographer Otto Heller." "A Woman of Straw" stars Sean Connery, Gina Lollobrigida, Ralph Richardson and Alexander Knox. Basil Dearben, one of Britain's finest directors, keeps the movie suspenseful from beginning to end. Gina Lollobrigida never looked more beautiful and Sean Connery truly makes a tempting love affair. It is all wonderful and unpredictable. "Woman of Straw" is one of Britain's finest films and is not to be missed!
