Swedish-born movie actress Anita Ekberg sits in a court room at Castrovillari, near Cosenza, southern Italy, on May 5, 1960, as she was questioned about injuries to ten persons, allegedly caused by a car in which she was participating in an “automobile rally of stars” in June 1959. In background sits the judge, Antonio Lupone. Miss Ekberg was riding in a car driven by Italian marchese Antonio Gerini, in a parade heading from Rome to Sicily. At Castrovillari a big group of fans gathered round the car during a rally halt. Police said the Marchese started to drive away while the fans were still around the car, injuring ten. Newspapers reported at the time that the fans were particularly attracted because a button was missing from Anita’s blouse at a most strategic point, but she denied that in court. The next hearing in the case will be May 12, 1960. (AP Photo)

      He died on the 7th of January and his birthday was the 11th the same day she died.
