Rest in peace, Anita Ekberg

Another classic movie star has left us. The glamorous Anita Ekberg passed away this morning in a hospital in Italy. She was eighty-three years old. Anita was born in Sweden on September 29 1931 and started out as a model. In 1956 she played Helene in "War And Peace", also starring Audrey Hepburn and Henry Fonda.

But Anita is best remembered for her role in Federico Fellini's "La Dolce Vita" from 1960, in which she took a memorable bath in Fontana di Trevi.

Rest in peace, angel. You will be missed.
