I have a new favorite tumblr and it’s called Reading In Movies.  These are some of the stills from this lovely curation of images from films where characters are reading.

There’s something moving about seeing them all together, no?  You can follow this tumblr here.

In order, the stills are from One Day (2011, dir. Lone Scherfig), Some Like it Hot (1959, dir. Billy Wilder) Pierrot le Fou (1965, dir. Jean-Luc Godard), and Psycho (1960, dir. Alfred Hitchcock)

La dolce vita (1960) - Anita Ekberg as Sylvia wearing a strapless velvet gown with sweetheart neckline and layered tulle overskirt, accessorized with a white fur stole, in the iconic scene set at Fontana di Trevi in Rome.

The costumes were designed by Piero Gherardi.

The Swedish actress, who was 83, passed away today. May she rest in peace.
