'An antidote to conventional star biographies'

'Small has uncovered a wealth of information, changing our perceptions of
Italian popular cinema’ (Professor Mary Wood)


ABOUT THE BOOK
European stardom is very different from that of Hollywood, where the
industry concentrates intensively on establishing and promoting major stars.
This unique book sets out to highlight the career of Sophia Loren as a prime
example of a highly original rise to fame in a European context. Pauline
Small emphasizes that although primarily an Italian star, Loren’s career
crossed the boundaries of a shifting network of film-making ventures that
spanned Italy, Hollywood and Europe.

Loren was one of the leading figures in the 1950s whose professional
achievements, Small argues, were undervalued and to a degree remain so.
Using written and visual materials ranging from government archives to
academic journals, from the popular press to her major films, 'Sophia Loren:
Moulding the Star' gives a fuller understanding of the forces, commercial,
industrial and cultural, that combined to forge her enduring star status and
the cult of a major film personality.

 
CRITICAL RECEPTION
‘An antidote to conventional star biographies which explain a star's career
in personality terms, Pauline Small's careful research into the realities of
a film industry usually described as 'Byzantine' puts Sophia Loren into a
much more rounded and interesting context. This book will be immensely
valuable for students and teachers of Italian cinema, giving fascinating
insights into Italian society and the Italian and Hollywood film industries,
and how the star functioned within them. Pauline Small has uncovered a
wealth of information, changing our perceptions of Italian popular cinema.’
– Mary Wood, Professor of European Cinema, University of London.

 
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Pauline Small teaches courses on Italian, European and Hollywood cinema
at Queen Mary, University of London. Her research interests focus
mainly on stardom in 1950s Italy, and contemporary Italian cinema.

She has forthcoming publications with Intellect with a book chapter, ‘The
Films of Emanuele Crialese’ in 'Italian Film Directors' in the 'New
Millenium' edited by W. Hope (Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2010). Further
to the 2005 publication on Giordana’s 'I cento passi' she is at present
writing an article on two more recent Italian Mafia films, 'The Consequences
of Love' (Sorrentino, 2004) and 'Gomorrah' (Garrone, 2008).
