A Classic Beauty
Anita Ekberg (1931 – 2015) was a Swedish-born Italian actress, model, and sex symbol. She is best known for her role as Sylvia in the Federico Fellini film La Dolce Vita (1960). She worked primarily in Italy.
Today film is much more international with casts from multiple continents. But in the 1950s and 60s actresses like Ekberg were often pigeonholed as some strange type of "foreigner" and were not given prime roles in Hollywood based films.
Ekberg passed away last week. Bless her.
