DESIRE UNDER THE ELMS MOVIE CAST: SOPHIA LOREN and ANTHONY PERKINS
Shown together in an intimate scene from the film
Photograph signed: "Sophia Loren", "Anthony Perkins". B/w, 8x10. Both are shown in a movie still from Desire Under the Elms (1958). Desire Under the Elms, which debuted in 1924 as a play by Eugene O'Neill, re-cast a Greek tragedy in an American setting. Sophia Loren stars as a woman married to an older man (Burl Ives) while adulterously involved with his son (Anthony Perkins). SOPHIA LOREN (born 1934), statuesque and sensuous, was an established star in Italy by 1954, competing with Gina Lollobrigida for audiences on both sides of the Atlantic. After arriving in Hollywood in 1958, Loren was cast in sexually charged roles in such films as Desire Under the Elms, The Black Orchid and Heller in Pink Tights. In 1961, she returned to Italy to star in a definitely unglamorous role in a most memorable film, Two Women, for which she received an Academy Award and the Cannes Festival Award. She also received a nomination for the 1965 Best Actress Oscar for portraying Filumena Marturano in Marriage Italian-Style. In 1991, Sophia Loren was awarded a Special Academy Award "for a career rich with memorable performances that has added permanent luster to our art form". Her other films include The Black Orchid, El Cid, Boy on a Dolphin, It Started in Naples and Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow. In 1995, 61-year-old Italian beauty Sophia Loren starred in Grumpier Old Men with Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau, proving that her beauty and sex appeal are timeless. ANTHONY PERKINS (1932-1992) began his film career auspiciously with roles in Friendly Persuasion (Oscar nomination, 1956), Fear Strikes Out (1957) and On the Beach (1958). He won the Best Actor award at the Cannes festival for Aimez-Vous Brahms? (1961). However, his career was forever changed by his powerful performance in Hitchcock's Psycho (1960). Many of his subsequent performances were Psycho sequels and other creepy roles. Perkins died of complications from AIDS in 1992. Compounding the tragedy, his wife, Berry Berenson, who had appeared in four films with Perkins, was killed aboard one of the hijacked airliners on 9-11, 2001. Lightly worn at corners. Otherwise, fine condition.
