“There are certain movie images that come to stand for more than just the picture itself — they come to define an entire era, and it seems to happen instantaneously: Humphrey Bogart waiting at the bar for Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca, James Dean in his red jacket in Rebel Without A Cause and, of course, Anita Ekberg in the Trevi Fountain in Fellini’s La Dolce Vita. This brief moment conjures up a vast universe that’s gone now — the international ‘jet set’ of the 60s and 70s, the world of international moviemaking, the very special cinematic world of Federico Fellini. He and Marcello Mastroianni and Ekberg made magic together. It was her one great moment in movies, but it was legendary.”
