At AFI Fest, Sophia Loren recalled an interesting moment between her, Marlon Brando, and Charlie Chaplin

When asked about Marlon Brando, she said, “Eh” with an expressive shrug of the shoulders that had the aud bursting into laughter. Laughing herself, she admitted that initially the two didn’t get along. She recalled an incident when Charlie Chaplin and she were kept waiting by Brando on the set of “A Countess in Hong Kong.” She said Chaplin took Brando to task for the delay. “Marlon Brando didn’t have a very good voice, very small,” she said, and after being berated by Chaplin, “it went away.” Loren herself was famous for being on set early, Marshall said, but the actress said since it irritated people she’s modulated her arrival.
