Woman of Straw


Basil Dearden

Tyrannical, wheelchair bound businessman acquires a new nurse.

A drama that finally becomes a murder mystery with no mystery.

Richardson makes an awesome monster, and Connery is suitably oily as his nephew.

Despite the US poster there are no fires or guns in this movie!
