For those who adore Sophia Loren, here’s a theater preview from 1963 of Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow, which was the winner of the 1964 Oscar® for Best Foreign Film.
The film remains one of the most beloved Italian films of all time, and if you watch it all the way through, you’ll see one of the reasons why: a lovely Loren lingerie strip-tease!
There are two versions of the scene. One prudish American version where Loren stops stripping at her bra and panties, and a European version where she takes her bra off. (I’ve not been able to find that on YouTube yet.)
No wonder Loren posed in lingerie (under a sheet too it seems) for The Pirelli Calendar at the age of 71. The calendar, which often features nude models, is distributed to a select group of just 30,000 people (including royals) each year. Loren was photographed in 2006, just months before her 72nd birthday, for the 2007 calendar.
