• Sophia LOREN - Goodness, Gracious! - A Musical Portrait of Sophia Loren

Sophia Loren was described as the world's most voluptuous, beautiful, sensuous woman, and was undisputedly the finest female actress of her generation. In fact she is the most decorated Italian actress ever, winning dozens of industry trophies including an Oscar, several Golden Globes, a Grammy, a BAFTA - the list goes on!

Although never a regular recording artist, back in the early '50s Sophia recorded a handful of cash-in novelty records such as: 'Mambo Bacan'; 'I Wanna A Guy'; 'Che M'e 'Mparato A Fa'; 'Felicità' and 'Perché Domani?' all of which were huge hits in Italy.

She also recorded film music: 'S'Agapò' is from 'Boy on a Dolphin'; 'Almost in Your Arms' and Bing! Bang! Bong! From 'Houseboat'; 'Tu Vuo Fa L'Americano' and 'Carina' from 'It Started in Naples'; whilst 'Goodness Gracious Me' is from 'The Millionaires'.

All are gathered herein with incidental theme music from several other movies, to give an intimate musical portrait of one of the silver screen's truly iconic figures.
