Background: Britain's entry to the Brussels International Film Festival is represented by two 'foreign' artists - Italian and American.
Miss Sophia Loren, her husband Carlo Ponti, William Holden, and Carol Reed - the director of the film 'The Key' in which Sophia Loren and William Holden have just starred - flew into Brussels today and a film star's welcome. Air hostesses curtsied and handed flowers to the lovely Italian star as she stepped down from her aircraft.
Sophia Loren, and British actor Trevor Howard have won unanimous praise from the critics for their performances in the film The Key, chosen by Festival President Vermeylen's committee to open the proceedings at Brussels.
Crowds gathered outside the theatre as King Badouin arrived to honour this glittering occasion with his presence.
