By Cindy De La Hoz
Living legend Sophia Loren remains an international icon renowned for her Oscar-winning talent, timeless beauty, and uniquely Italian charm. Her life and films unfold through engaging text, quotes, and hundreds of stunning photos in Sophia Loren. Part of Turner Classic Movies publishing program.
From the humblest of beginnings in her native Italy, Sophia Loren would flourish on the world stage as one of the most beautiful and talented actresses the screen has ever known. A prize in a beauty contest at age 16 led to a career that has lasted more than sixty years and performances in a diverse canon of films, including The Pride and the Passion, Houseboat, Marriage Italian Style, Grumpy Old Men, and Two Women, for which she was awarded the first Best Actress Oscar given to the star of a foreign film.
Sophia Loren is a photographic tribute to the beloved icon, recounting the star's extraordinary life and notable films with famous costars and directors and quotes by Sophia and those who have known her best. Filled with hundreds of rare color and black-and-white photographs, it's a volume as stunning as its ageless subject.
Cindy De La Hoz is the author of several books on film and fashion- among them, Audrey and Givenchy, Lucy at the Movies, and Lana: The Memories, the Myths, the Movies, which Leonard Maltin called "one of the best books about a star I've ever read." She has also edited numerous books on film history and women's lifestyle subjects. Cindy lives in Philadelphia, PA.
