Goodness Gracious Me

This song came up in conversation the other day. I thought it was Bridget Bardot, but it was Sophia Loren, of course. Apparently she is working this year on a biopic of her early life, based on her sister Maria's diary. That should be interesting, given that her story is of growing up fatherless and poor in wartime Italy.


  1. Is that Peter Sellers with her? What movie is that from????

  2. Helen + Ilana! Nice to have you visit!
    Yes, that's Peter Sellers. The song was put out to promote the movie "The Millionairess" and didn't actually appear in the film anywhere.

    Must come over to visit and see what you've been up to...
