Summary

The first book on Sophia of its kind, Sophia Loren: Movie Star Italian Style is a photographic tribute to the beloved icon, recounting the star's extraordinary life and notable films.

From the humblest of beginnings in her native Italy, Sophia Loren has gone on to have one of the most interesting paths in motion picture history. In a career spanning close to seven decades, she starred in epic blockbusters of the '50s, '60s, and '70s; dazzled in dramatic roles opposite the likes of Cary Grant, Marcello Mastroianni, John Wayne, Gregory Peck, and Marlon Brando; and turned heads in classics like Houseboat, Marriage Italian Style, Grumpy Old Men, and Two Women, for which she was awarded the first Academy Award for Best Actress in a leading role given to the star of a foreign film.

Sophia Loren is a photographic tribute to the beloved icon, taking you on an illustrative journey through her remarkable life, dearest relationships, and diverse film canon. Filled with hundreds of rare color and black-and-white photographs and featuring quotes by Sophia and those who have known her best, it's a volume as stunning as its ageless subject.
