Blu-ray Review - Woman of Straw


As a twisty crime picture, 1964's "Woman of Straw" is a slow-burn affair, attempting to beguile audiences with a little heat generated between stars Gina Lollobrigida and Sean Connery (in the same film year, the actor would conquer the globe with "Goldfinger"), and incite some hatred for Ralph Richardson, who plays a broadly loathsome character.
