   The actress recently toured the United States with An Evening With Sophie Loren, which recounted her childhood in war-time Naples, the beauty contest she won at the age of 14, and her spectacular career in film. She has received a multitude of honors, including an Academy Award for her dramatic role in Two Women in 1961. Loren starred in over 100 films during her career, and worked with such acclaimed directors as Vittorio de Sica, George Cukor, Charlie Chaplin, and Robert Altman.

   In 1991, Loren was honored by the American Film Academy with a Lifetime Achievement Award; and in 1999, she was recognized by the American Film Institute as a screen legend of Hollywood’s Golden Age. More recently, the actress had a shade of lipstick named for her, and she also appeared in a Dolce & Gabbana commercial for a new fragrance.

   Other cinematic stars celebrated at the Transylvania fest in recent years have included Claudia Cardinale, Vanessa Redgrave, Catherine Deneuve, and Geraldine Chaplin.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
