Harold Pruett, who plays the outsider on the new "Hull High," tells a story about Sophia Loren: He was filming "The Fortunate Pilgrim" in Yugoslavia with the actress. "The food was really greasy and I wasn't eating. After a month and a half she noticed that I was getting thin. I told her I didn't like the food. About three days later I got a call. And she said, 'I'd like you to come up.'
"She was in a suite and they had a kitchen there for her. She invited me to dinner. I came up and she'd flown in pasta and fresh meats from Italy and she cooked for three or four days like that for me. And I've never been so full in my life."
