Listen to Dallas Morning News writer and Mixed Media contributor Michael Granberry's conversation with 81-year-old screen icon Sophia Loren. Loren has shared the silver screen with Charlton Heston, Peter Sellers, Clark Gable, Marcello Mastroianni, Paul Newman, Cary Grant and Gregory Peck. But it's a director she remembers most fondly. Plus: Find out what Loren really things of that famous photograph of her staring incredulously at Jayne Mansfield's ample bosom.
