Summary, etc.:
Anita Ekberg became an international symbol of lush beauty and unbridled sensuality in the 1960 Federico Fellini film ́La Dolce Vita." Fellini cast Ms. Ekberg as a hedonistic American actress visiting Rome. A single moonlit scene ́ in which she wades into the Trevi Fountain in a strapless evening gown, turns her face ecstatically to the fountaińs waterfall and seductively calls Marcello Mastroiannís character, a jaded journalist, to join her ́ established her place in cinema history.. BECOMING ANITA EKBERG is an exploration of how Anita Ekberg became an internationally famous actress and sex goddess as a result of the careful cultivation of her image in various movies, both in Hollywood, by Frank Tashlin, and in Europe, by Fellini.
