#Fact
1During the shooting of Claude Chabrol's Bluebeard (1963), he was so appalled by Stéphane Audran's performance that he asked 'who's that slut who's playing Fernande?' Chabrol (who was already engaged to Audran) slapped Ponti in the face and screamed 'that's my woman!' The director and the actress married one year later.
2Produced every motion picture made at Lux Films in Rome between 1945 and 1949.
3Was considered for the role of Vito Corleone in The Godfather (1972) despite the fact that he was not an actor.
4Is portrayed by Joseph Long in The Life and Death of Peter Sellers (2004).
5The controversy surrounding his first marriage to Sophia Loren, was that he was still legally married to his first wife Giuliana Fiastri at that time in the eyes of Cathoilc Italy, even though they had already divorced by 1957. In order to marry Loren he obtained a divorce in Mexico where they also got married by proxy, but this was not recognized back in Italy where Ponti was condemned and told he would be charged with bigamy should he return. Thus Ponti and Loren lived in exile in the States for a while until matters could be resolved. In the end the solution was for all three: Ponti, Loren and his ex-wife Fiastri to adopt French citizenship so that he and Fiastri could be legally divorced, and he and Loren could be legally married.
6Founded the production company "Ponti-De Laurentiis" together with Dino De Laurentiis, which produced Totò a colori (1952), the first Italian movie in color.
7After he had divorced from Giuliana Fiastri in Mexico, he married Sophia Loren in 1957. As the divorce was not legalized in Italy, he was accused of bigamy and his marriage to Loren was annulled in 1962. Thus, the couple and Ponti's first wife acquired French citizenship, so that he and Loren could marry again in 1966.
8Got to know his future wife Sofia Villone Scicolone at the "Miss Rome" competition and gave her the stage name Sophia Loren (1952).
9Studied law at the University of Milan.
10Earned a law degree from the University of Milan. Practiced law in Milan in the late 1930s.
11Member of the jury at the Cannes Film Festival in 1959
