Sophia Loren aka Sofia Villani Scicolone Ponti

Born September 20, 1934 in Rome, Italy.

Sophia Loren

Sophia Loren is an international star in the true sense, as her film career is a combination of American films and international films, and she can be categorized as an Italian film star, but just as easily labeled an American one, too, as her film list of Hollywood movies is very long and has her starring and co-starring with most of Hollywood's upper-tier of male stars: Clark Gable, John Wayne, Charlton Heston, Cary Grant, Gregory Peck, etc.

Loren won the Academy Award for Best Actress in 1962 for her performance as Cesira in director Vittorio De Sica's Two Women.

She has been the author of a number of books, has owned numerous businesses utilizing her fame to sell perfume, eyewear, and more.


Boy on a Dolphin - 1957

Sophia Loren at Sea

Probably the first "big Hollywood film" of Loren's career, Boy on a Dolphin has been roaming around television for many decades as a washed-out color movie with the question hanging in the air of whether decent film elements still existed for what had been a major production effort from 20th Century Fox back in 1957. Apparently the answer is yes, with a blu-ray restored version now coming Fall of 2016.

Review: Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow

Sophia Loren Memoir 2014

Sophia Loren uses the 352 pages of this book to chronicle her film career and to narrate the life of her family, particularly her mother who transfers her love for film (and ambition for acting) to her, and of Loren's long association with manager and husband Carlo Ponti.

Included in the tale is the impoverished desperation of her childhood and the pain of being an ignored daughter of a father who rarely enters the life of her and her sister, and when he does it often creates brutal emotional pain. She recounts her career rise through Italian photo-comic books, beauty pageants, and finally a long film career.

She talks about film productions and other Hollywood personalities like John Wayne, Cary Grant, Peter Sellers, among many others, and also discusses Italian movie production in general.
