Graumans Chinese -- Sophia Loren -- March 3, 2018

In July, 2012 we paid a return visit to Hollywood and Grauman's Chinese Theater. Sid Grauman was a San Francisco showman who came to Los Angeles and built three major houses, the Million Dollar, the Egyptian, and the Chinese. The theater has hosted many film premieres, but is most famous for the hand and footprints (and hoofprints and nose prints and other types of prints) in the forecourt.
Next door to last month's subject Marcello Mastroianni is his frequent co-star, Sophia Loren. She left her hand and footprints three years earlier, on 26-July-1962. Does "Solo per sempre" mean "Always alone"? I'm not sure why she would have put that.

When I was young, lots of people talked about Sophia Loren. She was a wonderful actress and a great beauty.
