Bella signora, the one and only Sophia Loren! (early 1960’s)
Pictured here is the great screen goddess of the sixties, Sophia Loren smiling beautifully. She got her start in the 1950s but she only had small bit parts. It wasn’t until her performance as Cesira in “Vittorio De Sica’s Two Women” that Loren’ talents were fully recognized. The role ended up earning her the Academy Award for Best Actress in 1962. This made her the first artist to win an Oscar for a foreign-language performance. She has worked hard to maintain her unique beauty over six decades in the entertainment industry, appearing in almost 100 film and TV roles.
