Sophia's voice is dubbed by:
Mario Degler (German)
Carlo Ponti for c.c. Champion (Rome) / Les Films Concordia (Paris)
"Rosi would have preferred Marcello Mastroianni for the role of the prince, but he had to accept Omar Sharif because Carlo Ponti felt that the film would have a wider market that way and because Sophia had never digested having had to give up being Sharif's co-star in the legendary epic film Doctor Zhivago."
Stefano Masi & Enrico Lancia, Sophia.
The movie is simultaneously filmed in Italian and in English, but only for the three main characters.
Filming is interrupted after three
months as Sophia's new pregnancy turns to
miscarriage again on January 13, 1967.
Whether on-screen, stunningly shot by Giuseppe De Santis, or in the Tazio Secciaroli (sic) stills, the impeccably buoyant Loren features had, indeed, never been more radiant."
Tony Crawley, The Films of Sophia Loren.
"Sophia Loren, back in her imperious native cadences, sparkles in the rags of a disturbing Cinderella."
Onorario Orsini, La Notte. (20 oct 1967)
"In addition to be a beautiful movie star and an actress of real talent, Sophia Loren a one-woman anti-poverty program."
Vincent Canby, New York Times, 2 nov 1967
"Sophia's personality goes way beyond what she wants to show. She has the eyes of a common girl, possesses all the caracteristics of an aristocrat brought up by poverty and suffering. We were the only two Neapolitans in the troup. We would understand each other without even saying a word."
