    Well, here is another R.I.P. thread. Film buffs should appreciate it, thought.

    First Rod Taylor, then Anita Ekberg. A lot of film history has passed the past few days.

    A true cinema classic. Fellini isn't for everyone, though.

    Sad news indeed. I had no idea Rod Taylor died. Just the other day I watched The Time Machine on DVD:(

    La Dolce Vita

    Great actress and one of my favorite movies. I have the DVD and pull it out to watch every couple years or so.

    Neither had I. Indeed, it was only on reading this thread that I realised that Rod Taylor had died - as a child I loved the TV series 'Bearcats' and was surprised that it only lasted one season.

    Re Anita Ekberg, well, La Dolce Vita is one of cinema's classics, and a defining film of the 1950s.

    R.I.P. Ms. Ekberg.

    I am a post Fellini Italian cinema fan but I can and do appreciate La Dolce Vita.

    Ah, well, I even ordered the soundtrack of La Dolce Vita a few years ago……..on a CD and played it for my mother, who loved it and said it brought back memories.

    I just noticed Amazon has the movie on Blu-Ray. Looks like a nicely restored version that was released in October 2014. Ordered.
