Original title: 1964 Woman of Straw
English: Woman of Straw
German: Die Strohpuppe
Polish: doslownie to bedzie "Kobieta ze slomy" ale taki tytul nie pasuje do tresci filmu...

Gina plays as Maria and Maria is an Italian woman looking for a better tomorrow in England. She is a nurse and looks after rich Charles Richmond. The first scene with Maria shows how tiny person she is. Gina with her gestures (the way she moves or for example puts things or sits) brings to the movie the taste of a great cinema. As usual Gina co-operated with the movie director and scriptwriters. This irritated Connery. Once he told Gina- "Either he's directing the picture or you are. If it's you, I may not be in it". During one scene Sean had to rough Gina up, then slap her across the face. Connery slapped her too hard, than apologized. Full description soon. bartek
