Abstract:

Born an illegitimate child in Fascist Italy, Sophia Loren grew up a sickly and undernourished girl who blossomed into one of the world's great beauties. After her screen debut as a teenager, she made several movies in Italy that left directors impressed with her stunning looks and range of emotion. But it was her Oscar-winning performance in Two women in 1960--under the tutelage of the great Italian director Vittorio DeSica--that made Sophia Loren an international star. Whether he is describing her impoverished childhood, discussing the making of her early films (such as The Pride and the Passion, when costar Cary Grant was smitten with her), or examining her enduring love affair with Italian producer Carlo Ponti, to whom she has been married for nearly 40 years, Harris gives depth to his portrait, with many new facts about Loren's personal life.
