"In Girls Marked for Danger Sophia's pièce de résistance is a scene lasting a minute and some seconds in which she faints during the dance marathon, is carried to Silvana Pampanini's room and reveals that she is pregnant. Legend has it that during a break in the filming one of the member of the crew exclaimed: 'This one will steal the scene from Pampanini'".
