Filmography / Photos

The first complete book dedicated to Sophia Loren's films is an excellent reference guide and was for two decades the only source available. Many newspaper film reviews from the UK and the US with lots of black and white movie stills for each film, from Quo Vadis up to Verdict.

First French book dedicated to Sophia Loren signed by French AFP journalist.
Interesting filmography section (1950-1984) documented with anecdotes and facts, followed by an impressive 134-page black and white photo album  taken from archives and movies.
A must for every Loren fan even if you don't speak French.

Short biography, complete filmography with plot description, notes and small pictures. The problem is - just as for Meyer-Stabley book - that the it is filled with errors of all kinds. It is the work of an author who compiled information from various sources but who does not know much about Sophia's career. It is worth reading but one has to cautious about the accuracy of the notes.

Fumetti / Photos

<>Two complete stories and excerpts from three other fumetti stories - all featuring Sophia - published by Sogno and Cine Illustrato magazines between 1950 and 1952. The book also includes iconographical documents of the same period plus some examples of other fumetti publicatons from South America. Very nice work and a must for all early Loren fans.
