Sophia - happy birthday
Happy 82nd to Sophia Loren, still going strong.
Here she is back in 1962 in a slight thriller FIVE MILES TO MIDNIGHT, with Tony Perkins. Any film that begins with La Loren at her peak dancing the twist in a Paris nightclub, before Tony Perkins comes in and slaps her face, has to be watchable ... (its directed by Anatole Litvak, and scripted by Peter Viertel. Litvak had already done Tony in Paris with Ingrid in GOODBYE AGAIN).
