What a Woman!

Genre: Romance, Comedy; Starring: Charles Boyer, Sophia Loren, Marcello Mastroianni; Director: Alessandro Bonsetti; MPAA Rating: Unrated

Better known as Lucky to Be a Woman, What a Woman! is a romantic comedy lighter than lint and about as enchanting, but it captures Loren on the road from homemade Italian sex bomb to vulgarized Hollywood pinup. As a shop girl with modeling aspirations, she’s wooed by a raffish photographer (Mastroianni) and a sugar daddy agent (Boyer). Muddy dubbing renders Mastroianni charmlessly glib, but Loren, of the twin-missile bosom and incendiary eyebrows, duly detonates. C
