EDITOR'S NOTES

Ciao Blasetti - February 1
As Sophia is dubbing her voice into Italian for the movie Courage, which premieres on Italian TV on February 15, she is apprised of the death of director Alessandro Blasetti who directed her three times in the 1950's. She does not attend the funeral service because she does not want her memories into a flash of photographers.

Goodbye to Levine - July 31
Producer and movie mogul Joseph. E. Levine dies at Greenwich Hospital in Connecticut at age 81 after a short illness. He co-produced many films with Ponti and distributed most Sophia's films in the USA in the 60's.

Ponti's Trial - November 9
Italy's Supreme Court of Cassation finds Carlo Ponti innocent of exporting funds charges.
