Cary Grant and Sophia Loren
Two of Hollywood’s most popular and beloved stars ever, Cary Grant and Sophia Loren star in the 1957 film The Pride and the Passion. Directed by the wonderful Stanley Kramer, the film also stars Frank Sinatra and Jay Novello (love them both!).
Sophia Loren, about Cary Grant: “I learned many things working with Cary Grant. He has such tremendous concentration. Many actors do not have the courage to stand still. Cary Grant knows how to concentrate, how to look directly at you, but always with great relaxation.”
You can find The Pride and the Passion on DVD (Amazon link). It’s a film that you don’t hear a lot about and one that, unfortunately, isn’t shown on television often (probably why you don’t hear more about it!) but it is VERY good and very much worth watching. The performances by the leads are outstanding and Jay Novello is never anything but completely entertaining.
