• Sophia Loren

A white 5x3 card signed by Sophia Loren, the international film star and Italy's most renowned and honored actress. She began her career at age 14 after entering a beauty pageant in 1949. Encouraged to enroll in acting lessons, Loren appeared in several bit parts and minor roles until the late 1950s when a five-picture contract with Paramount launched her international career. Notable film appearances around this time including; Houseboat, That Kind of Woman and It Started in NaplesIt was not until her deglamorized performance as Cesira in Vittorio De Sica's Two Women that her talents as an actress rather than a sexpot were recognised, and her performance earned her the Academy Award for Best Actress in 1962 making her the first artist to win an Oscar for a foreign-language performance. After starting her family in the early 1970s, Loren spent less time on her acting career and chose to make only occasional film appearances. In later years, she has appeared in American films such as Grumpier Old Men and Nine. Would make a terrific display piece, mounted with a portrait (see Unsigned Portraits category)
