Anita Ekberg


Anyone else like her? In terms of 50's blonde bombshells, I think I prefer her to Marilyn Munroe.

She was great in La Dolce Vita....very stylish really.



the famous Fontana dress....

Yes, she did have a great body, in her hey day. I haven't seen anything other than 'La Dolce Vita' but from my understanding many of her films exploited that, much like Brigitte Bardot's career. Unfortunately as she got older she became heavier and her career started to dwindle...

Your welcome!

Here is a small blurb on her from wikipedia.org, for those who aren't familiar with her:
Kerstin Anita Marianne Ekberg (born on September 29, 1931 in Malmö, Sweden) was a model and actress. A 1951 Miss Sweden -- she competed in the Miss Universe pageant -- she is best-known for her role as Sylvia in La Dolce Vita, directed by the late Federico Fellini. Ethel Merman dubbed the well-endowed Ekberg (measurements 40-22-36) "the thinking man's dunce cap: two of them." Bob Hope joked that her parents had received the Nobel Prize for architecture.

She made many movies, but few in English. Among her most prominent films are the low-budget Screaming Mimi in 1958, Fellini's La Dolce Vita in 1960, in which she played the unattainable "dream woman"; Boccaccio '70 in 1962, a movie that also featured Sophia Loren; two films in 1966, The Alphabet Murders and Way...Way Out, the latter introducing Linda Harrison in her first movie; Woman Times Seven in 1967, with Shirley MacLaine; and a small role in If It's Tuesday, This Must Be Belgium in 1969.

Ekberg was married to the British actor Anthony Steel from 1956 to 1959. From 1963 to 1975, she was married to the actor Rik Van Nutter; during their marriage, she had several miscarriages, but no successful pregnancies.

She reportedly also was romantically involved with Tyrone Power, Marcello Mastroianni, Errol Flynn, Yul Brynner, Frank Sinatra, and Gary Cooper; she also had a three-year affair with the late Fiat chairman Gianni Agnelli.

She has lived alone in Rome, Italy for many years.

Thanks for the pictures lady stardust. As far as acting, she was good in La Dolce Vita, but I suppose she would have to be, since she was mainly playing herself!

Anita won Miss Sweden in 1950. When she won Miss Sweden her measurements were 39 1/2-22-36. She is such a gorgeous woman. Unfortunately I haven't seen La Dolce Vita yet but I have seen her in Back From Eternity (1956) and War and Peace (1956).
