  • Description

    SOPHIA LOREN, THE 26 YEAR OLD FILM STAR FROM NAPLES, WAS IN ROME, ITALY, ON APRIL 10, WHEN SHE WAS TOLD SHE HAD WON THE AMERICAN ACADEMY AWARD "OSCAR" FOR HER PERFORMANCE IN "TWO WOMEN". SHE CELEBRATED WITH A CHAMPAGNE PARTY IN HER LUXURIOUS HOME SOON AFTER THE AWARDS WERE ANNOUNCED AT THE CEREMONY IN HOLLYWOOD, U.S.A.

    WITH HER HUSBAND, CARLO PONTI, VITTORIO DE SICA, DIRECTOR OF THE FILM, AND HER MOTHER, SHE HAD STAYED UP ALL NIGHT TO HEAR THE AWARDS ANNOUNCED. "I COULDN'T SLEEP", SHE ADMITTED LATER.

    OF HER SUCCESS, SHE SAID; "IT IS WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL. I JUST CAN'T BELIEVE MY EARS. IT IS ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THINGS THAT HAS HAPPENED TO ME SINCE I MARRIED CARLO PONTI".

    WITH THE "TWO WOMEN" SOPHIA HAS WON TWO AWARDS. EARLIER, THE BRITISH FILM ACADEMY AWARDED HER THE TITLE OF BEST FOREIGN ACTRESS FOR HER PERFORMANCE. THE "OSCAR" FOR THE BEST ACTOR, WENT TO MAXIMILIAN SCHELL, FROM AUSTRIA, FOR HIS PERFORMANCE IN "JUDGEMENT AT NUREMBERG." IT WAS THE FIRST TIME THAT TWO FOREIGNERS HAVE WON THE TOP PRIZES SINCE 1939, WHEN TWO BRITISH STARS, VIVIEW LEIGH AND ROBERT DONAT, WON THE AWARDS.
