Actress Ingrid Bergman

Ingrid Bergman biography

Ingrid Bergman was a Swedish actress. Ingrid Bergman was a student at Dramaten in 1933 and made her film debut in 1935 in the film Munkbrogreven. Her role in Gustaf Molander's Intermezzo (1936) caused producer David O. Selznick to persuade her to move to Hollywood in 1939 to remake the film.

However, Ingrid Bergman, whose mother was German-born, previously made an intermezzo in Berlin, where she recorded an apolitical melodrama, Die vier Gesellen (1938).

Ingrid Bergman became a celebrated star in 1940s Hollywood, where she shone in films such as Casablanca (1943), For Whom the Bell Tolls (1943), and Gaslight (1944), for which she received an Oscar, as well as in Alfred Hitchcock's Spellbound (1945) and Notorious (1946).

It caused immense outrage in the United States when, in 1949, she broke with her image as an honorable wife and mother. She left her Swedish husband (the doctor Petter Lindström) and their daughter in favor of the Italian director Roberto Rossellini. For him, she recorded i.a. the first highly criticized, then acclaimed films Stromboli (1949) and Viaggio in Italia (1953).

Ingrid Bergmann regained favor with the American film industry and the public with her Oscar-winning role in Anastasia (1956). Still, she worked mainly in Europe, where in 1956, she appeared in Jean Renoir's Elena et Les Hommes. In 1958 she married the Swedish theater publisher and producer Lars Schmidt (1917-2009).

In the latter part of his career, Bergman appeared mainly in theater and television. Her excellent film work includes, for example, Cactus Flower (1969), Murder on the Orient Express (1974), which again brought her an Oscar, and the Oscar-nominated significant role opposite Liv Ullmann in Ingmar Bergman's mother/daughter drama Höstsonaten (1978).

Ingrid Bergmann ended her career in 1982 in the most beautiful way with the title role in the TV series A Woman called Golda (about Israel's Prime Minister). Her daughter, Roberto Rossellini, the fashion model Isabella Rossellini, broke through as a film actress in the 1980s.
