Sophia in L.A. 4 May 2011

AN EVENING WITH SOPHIA LOREN - an evening it would have been great to attend was the occasion of the 50th (!) anniversary of her Oscar win for TWO WOMEN, as the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences paid tribute to Sophia Loren at the Samuel Goldwyn theater in Beverly Hills on 4th May. Pity it was not televised as the audience were treated to clips from her career, comments from co-stars and family and Sophia herself looking marvellous at 76. Maybe I can persuade our London National Film Theatre to do something similar with her .... There is now a segment of it on YouTube at:

As mentioned on my many other posts on Sophia here, at least I got to see her up close in 1979 ...
