Woman Times Seven means a seven-segment showcase for the talents of Shirley MacLaine, playing in tragicomedy and dramatic fashion a variety of femme types. MacLaine is spotted in many different adult situations, and largely convinces with each switcheroo.

With Peter Sellers, she is the bereaved widow, trailing her late husband in funeral procession, as Sellers puts the make on her. Then, as a wife who surprises hubby Rossano Brazzi in bed with a neighbor, MacLaine shifts to the enraged female, determined on revenge. The major tour de force segment finds MacLaine and Alan Arkin alone in a flophouse room, plotting suicide together.
