Bibbi Andersson, playing Mia (or Mary, in Swedish) is one of those people that make you wonder where all of the hot women were in the 1950s. If you watch most movies from then the "hot" actress looks like your grandmother after she's shaved. You see enough of that and you just assume that attractive people started being born around 1970 and that's that. Then you meet Bibbi Andersson, who in 1956 makes Heidi Klum look like a bag lady. This isn't "Audrey Hepburn beautiful" where she looks like a porcelain doll that would be great to hang clothes off of. This is mouth-drying, throat-clearing attractive. I'm seriously tempted to see if she has grandchildren (no luck).
