This absorbing account of the fascinating Loren keeps one spellbound. From poverty and illegitimacy in Fascist Italy to the glamour and money of California moviedom, this is the life of a remarkable woman. Nadia May never skips a beat, never stumbles, and never loses (the listener’s or her own) interest, despite the length of this reading. She has perfect voices for the international players in this biography, especially for the Italian accent of Loren herself, as well as a masculine twist for her infamous producer-husband, Carlo Ponti. Movie buffs will appreciate the complete story lines of all of Loren’s movies. J.E.G. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 98]
