More info

Anita Ekberg (September 29, 1931) was elected Miss Sweden in 1950. As a result, the gorgeous beauty queen became internationally famous. Already in 1953, she was able to achieve her first big film success opposite John Wayne in “Blood Alley“. No doubt her most popular role was when she played Sylvia in “La Dolce Vita“. Especially the scene in which she takes a night-time bath in the Trevi Fountain obtained her international fame. This scene has contributed in making the biggest fountain in Rome extremely popular with tourists even today. Anita was also familiar to Bob Dylan – he even mentions her in his song “I Shall Be Free“. By means of her cool Nordic charm, the blond Swede, who is also known as “Ekberg, the Iceberg“, was brilliant over and over again.

About Hollywood Legends.

Despite obscurity and lack of funds, Bruno Bernard (1912-1987) set up his first darkroom in the basement of his Hollywood apartment in 1940. Shortly thereafter, he moved his studio to the famous Sunset Strip. “No one knew the name Bernard, but they all knew Hollywood“, and hence the optical trademark signature Bernard of Hollywood, which ensured the image of glamour visually for decades, was created.

Bruno Bernard was considered as “The king of Hollywood glamour” and Marilyn Monroe’s discoverer. In 1984 Bernard was the first still photographer to be honoured with an Oscar at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
