Anita Ekberg in 1958. It’s wrong but the coat is gorgeous! Oops, didn’t say that! She was born in Malmo, Sweden and is famous for her fountain scene in  “La Dolce Vita”. She was romantically linked with Tyrone Power, Marcello Mastroianni, Errol Flynn, Yul Brynner, Frank Sinatra and Gary Cooper; she also had a three-year affair with Fiat chairman Gianni Agnelli. In his autobiography,  Robert Wagner claims to have had an enjoyable one-night stand with Ekberg. She lives near Rome.

As a fan of old cinema, this is a lovely picture of those vintage days! Clark Gable, Van Heflin, Gary Cooper and James Stewart 1957 New Year Eve Party in Beverly Hills
