LADY L MOVIE CAST: SOPHIA LOREN and DAVID NIVEN Black and white publicity photograph of the actress and actor in a scene from Lady L (1965) Inscribed Photograph signed: "To Ann/ sincerely/ Sophia/ Loren" in black ink and "For Ann/ Best/ Wishes/ David Niven" in blue felt tip, b/w, 10x8. In this 1965 comedy directed by Peter Ustinov, Sophia Loren plays a laundress, Louise, who ends up marrying Dickie, Lord Lendale played by David Niven, thereby becoming Lady L. Statuesque and sensuous SOPHIA LOREN (b. 1934) 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 (1958), The Black Orchid (1958), and Heller in Pink Tights (1960). In 1961, she returned to Italy to star in a definitely unglamorous role in Two Women, for which she received a Best Actress Academy Award and the Cannes Festival Award for Best Actress. She also received a nomination for the 1965 Best Actress Oscar for portraying Filumena Marturano in Marriage Italian-Style. In 1991, Loren was awarded a Special Academy Award "for a career rich with memorable performances that has added permanent luster to our art form". In 1980, the year she wrote this letter, the made-for-TV movie, Sophia Loren: Her Own Story, aired. In 1995, at age 61, Loren starred in Grumpier Old Men with Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau, proving that her beauty and sex appeal are timeless. DAVID NIVEN (1910-1983) served with the Highland Infantry in Malta before he worked as a lumberman, news reporter, gunnery instructor to Cuban revolutionists, representative of a London wine firm in the United States, and finally, in 1935, an extra in Mutiny on the Bounty. After several strong supporting roles in the late 1930s, Niven had just had his first role as a leading man (opposite Ginger Rogers in 1939's Bachelor Mother), when World War II broke out. He became the first, and one of the few, British actors to leave Hollywood to re-enlist. After the war, all his roles were starring ones. He notched a Golden Globe for The Moon is Blue (1953), and played Phileas Fogg in Around the World in 80 Days (1956). Moreover, he won the 1959 Academy Award for Best Actor for Separate Tables (1958). Although often cast in light comedies, such as the Pink Panther series (1964 and after), Niven could also play strong action roles, one of which being his performance in The Guns of Navarone (1961). Corners creased. Scattered surface impressions (barely visible head-on). Otherwise, fine condition.
