  1. ‘La Dolce Vita’ Bombshell Dies at 83

    Anita Ekberg, best known for the 1960 Federico Fellini flick La Dolce Vita , died yesterday in Rome. Famed for her fully clothed on-screen frolic through the Trevi Fountain, Ekberg got her start as Miss Sweden in 1951. She set off for Hollywood shortly thereafter. The sexy star — who used her first paycheck to buy a mink stole — also appeared in three other Fellini films, was romantically linked to Frank Sinatra, and once threatened paparazzi with a bow and arrow.
