In her painting for WFUNA which she has entitled 'HOPE,' Miss Loren shows the outstretched arms of both children and adults reaching from the depths of darkness for the light and hope of the sun...From a little girl who was called stuzzicadenti (toothpick) and later being one of 10,000 slave girl extras in 'Quo Vadia,' Sophia has risen to the top of her profession, an Oscar-winning artist (for 'Two Women') of the first rank...Miss Loren has made over seventy films...In the world of films, no one personifies the word 'star,' no actress embodies 'glamour,' 'womanliness,' and 'talent,' the way Sophia Loren does...." Fine condition. Two items.
