Sophia Loren (*20.9.1934) comes from a poor background. Her father left the family very early whereupon her mother tried to capitalise on Sophia’s prettiness in order to support the family. Therefore the future actress participated in various beauty competitions, worked as a model and received a few extra appearances in films. In 1950 Sophia met the Italian film producer Carlo Ponti. He backed her up and also contrived her stage name. In 1957 she was able to shoot her first film in the USA. In the 60s and 70s she featured in the most successful films in Hollywood. In 1962 she won an Oscar for the best leading actress for her role in the film “La ciociara“ (Two Women).
About Hollywood Legends.
Despite obscurity and lack of funds, Bruno Bernard (1912-1987) set up his first darkroom in the basement of his Hollywood apartment in 1940. Shortly thereafter, he moved his studio to the famous Sunset Strip. “No one knew the name Bernard, but they all knew Hollywood“, and hence the optical trademark signature Bernard of Hollywood, which ensured the image of glamour visually for decades, was created.
Bruno Bernard was considered as “The king of Hollywood glamour” and Marilyn Monroe’s discoverer. In 1984 Bernard was the first still photographer to be honoured with an Oscar at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
