Classic Icons: Anita Ekberg
Posted by Rincewind
[tweetmeme source="erotixx" only_single=false] OK, my 2nd swede in my classic sex symbols blogathon, I introduce Anita Ekberg. She entered the Miss Malmö competition at her mother’s urging, leading to the Miss Sweden contest, which she won. She consequently went to the United States to compete for the Miss Universe title, despite not speaking English.
Although she did not win Miss Universe, as one of six finalists she did earn a starlet’s contract with Universal Studios, as was the rule at the time. In America, Ekberg met Howard Hughes, who at the time was producing films and wanted her to change her nose, teeth and name (Hughes said "Ekberg" was too difficult to pronounce). She refused to change her name, saying that if she became famous, people would learn to pronounce it, and if she didn’t become famous, it would not matter. LOVE THAT….
Federico Fellini gave Ekberg her greatest role in La Dolce Vita (1960), in which she played the unattainable "dream woman", La Dolce Vita was a sensational success, and Anita Ekberg’s uninhibited cavorting in Rome’s Trevi Fountain remains one of the most celebrated images in film history.
Words fail to explain what I feel for this woman so put your bib on and check out for yourself.
