Anita Ekberg, Star Of "La Dolce Vita", Dead At Age 83

11 January 2015 10:48 AM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

The cruel loss of legendary cinematic figures continues into the new year with the death of Anita Ekberg in Italy at age 83. The precise cause of death is not known at this time but she had suffered from a long illness. Ekberg was Swedish by birth but was often mistaken as a native of Italy because of her close association with Fellini and his films. She was named Miss Sweden as a teenager and competed in the Miss Universe contest before her statuesque figure ensured a career in show business during an era when full-bosomed sex sirens were all the rage. Hollywood studios were particularly on the lookout for the next exotic European beauty and Ekberg filled the bill perfectly. She slogged through bit parts uncredited in major studio productions before landing a prominent role opposite John Wayne and Lauren Bacall in the 1955 hit "Blood Alley" (in »

La Dolce Vita Star Anita Ekberg Dies at 83

11 January 2015 8:51 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Anita Ekberg, the Swedish pageant queen whose beauty bewitched director Federico Fellini in La Dolce Vita, died in a hospital outside of Rome at the age of 83. Known in some gossip rags as "The Iceberg," Ekberg was known as one of the sex symbols of Hollywood, and played opposite a number of Hollywood stars throughout her career like Audrey Hepburn in War and Peace and Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin in Four for Texas. She also toured with Bob Hope on a number of U.S.O. tours and starred in a number of movies with him. And long before the uproar over Scarlett Johansson's casting as the lead in Ghost in the Shell, Ekberg played a Chinese woman, Wei Ling in Blood Alley, for which she won a Golden Globe award in 1956.Ekberg was born in Malmo, Sweden in 1931, and grew up as one of eight children.

Anita Ekberg, ‘La Dolce Vita’ Star, Dies at 83

11 January 2015 5:24 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Anita Ekberg, the Swedish actress whose onscreen persona was best encapsulated by a scene of her wading sensually into the Trevi Fountain in “La Dolce Vita,” died Sunday in Rocca di Papa, near Rome. She was 83.

Ekberg, who had long been living in Italy, had been hospitalized recently due to several unspecified illnesses, her lawyer Patrizia Ubaldi said, confirming her death. She had been in a wheelchair for several years after breaking a hip.

Ekberg was one of cinema’s most famous “sex goddesses,” as renowned for her performances as she was for her alleged list of romances with major stars such as Frank Sinatra and Gary Cooper. In addition to “La Dolce Vita,” which made her an international film icon, Ekberg starred in “War and Peace” with Audrey Hepburn, “Artists and Models” with Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin and “Paris Holiday” with Bob Hope.

She auditioned for, but lost out on, »

Daily | Anita Ekberg, 1931 – 2015

11 January 2015 4:02 AM, PST | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

"Anita Ekberg, immortalized by her performance in Federico Fellini's 1960 film La Dolce Vita, died Sunday near Rome," reports the Afp. "She was 83." From TCM: "Coming to America after winning the Miss Sweden beauty competition in 1950, Ekberg soon secured herself a contract with Universal Pictures and began a string of appearances in such features as Blood Alley (1955), Hollywood or Bust (1956) and the historical epic War and Peace (1956). Often eclipsing her work on screen, however, were the alleged romantic liaisons with many of Hollywood's most powerful leading men, including Tyrone Power, Gary Cooper and Frank Sinatra. Sub-par genre pictures with titles like Sheba and the Gladiator (1959) were fast becoming Ekberg's stock-in-trade before Fellini cast the stunning actress in La Dolce Vita, instantly making her co-star Marcello Mastroianni an international superstar, but oddly, doing little to advance her career." » - David Hudson »
