Zampano, traveling strongman, buys young Gelsomina from her mother for 10,000 lire; he treats her poorly, takes advantage of her sexually, and uses force to make her to learn the trade of street performing. Yet even given opportunity, she refuses to actually leave the brute. Anthony Quinn's finest performance.
