Ingrid Bergman was one of the greatest actresses of Hollywood’s lamented Golden Era. Ingrid Bergman, a Swedish actress, was born in Stockholm on August 29, 1915. Bergman starred in a variety of European and American films. In 1933 she enrolled in the Royal Theatre of Dramatic Art but later changed to films instead. Before she came to Hollywood in 1939, she was already an established actress in Sweden.

Ingrid Bergman

Bergman suffered a sudden and disastrous fall from grace after her affair with Italian director Roberto Rossellini, which began when she filmed Stromboli (1950) with him and caused a scandal in the US because she was married at the time. After being exiled from Hollywood for seven years, she came back with Anastasia (1956), which garnered her a second Academy Award. After all the years she spent away from Hollywood, she still managed to maintain her status as a major star, as the success of films like Indiscreet (1958) and The Inn of the Sixth Happiness (1958) showed. In the 1960s she concentrated in stage work and television appearances, collaborated with her third husband Lars Schmidt, who was also a theatrical producer, in such plays as The Turn of The Screw (1960) and Twenty-Four Hours in a Woman’s Life (1961). She didn’t appear in as many films after the 1960s as she had before, but she continued to win awards and accolades from the film industry.

One of her last performances was in Murder on the Orient Express (1974), for which she won her final Academy Award. Later she worked in Ingmar Bergman‘s Autumn Sonata (1978) and a TV mini-series, A Woman Called Golda (1982) (TV). In these two pieces, Bergman gave the performances of her lifetime, a fitting end to an extraordinary career and life. She died in her sleep at the end of her 67th birthday, 29th of August 1982.
