Happy Birthday Sophia Loren


September 20, 1934 marks the Italian maven Sophia Loren’s birthday. In this image opposite Alan Ladd, she appears in Boy on a Dolphin, a 1957 20th Century Fox romantic film shot in Greece, noteworthy as her English language debut.



  1. I remember watching 'Boy on a Dolphin' in 1957 as a young boy at the original Jamaica Greek Orthodox Church in Jamaica, Queens, NYC. What stands in my memory is the proud faces of the congregants viewing this flick shot in mother Greece!

    Loved loved loved this movie ~ the dialogue's a little silly to me now, but the movie is beautifully filmed and who can resist Alan Ladd & Sophia Loren?
