Ingrid Bergman Introduction
Ingrid Bergman (born August 29, 1915 in Stockholm, Sweden) was a Swedish actress who starred in a variety of European and American films. She won three Academy Awards, two Emmy Awards, and the Tony Award for Best Actress. She is ranked as the fourth greatest female star of American cinema of all time by the American Film Institute. She is best remembered for her roles as Ilsa Lund in Casablanca (1942), a World War II drama co-starring Humphrey Bogart and as Alicia Huberman in Notorious (1946), an Alfred Hitchcock thriller co-starring Cary Grant. Before becoming a star in American films, she had already been a leading actress in Swedish films. Her first introduction to American audiences came with her starring role in the English remake of Intermezzo in 1939. In America, she brought to the screen a "Nordic freshness and vitality", along with exceptional beauty and intelligence, and according to the St. James Encyclopedia of Popular Culture, she quickly became "the ideal of American womanhood"...
Casablanca and other memorable stage and screen works
Ingrid's most famous and enduring role came in 1942, when she played Humphrey Bogart's long-lost love, Ilsa, in the wartime romance Casablanca. The film was a box office smash at the time and has become an enduring classic, giving Ingrid a place in the hearts of fans for years to come. She then took the role of Maria in the film version of Ernest Hemingway's novel For Whom the Bell Tolls in 1942, beating out Norwegian ballet dancer Vera Zorina. While she had not been nominated for Casablanca, Ingrid was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in "For Whom the Bell Tolls." The Oscar still proved elusive, however: she lost the award to Jennifer Jones for "The Song of Bernadette."
Ingrid was to win her first Best Actress Academy Award for her portrayal of a Victorian housewife who was being driven to insanity by her husband in the 1944 film Gaslight. That next year, she was nominated for Best Actress again, for the film The Bells of St. Mary's, but lost to Joan Crawford. Then, Ingrid worked on two films with Alfred Hitchcock: Spellbound (1945), and Notorious (1946), opposite Cary Grant. Many consider this second Hitchcock film to be Ingrid's finest work.
Over the next decade, Ingrid worked in films, television and on the stage. She won an Emmy in 1959 for the television miniseries adaptation of Henry James's The Turn of the Screw. She made her London theater debut in 1965 with the play A Month in the Country. Ingrid also starred in the play More Stately Mansions back in the States in 1967.
In 1974, Ingrid won a Best Actress in a Supporting Role Oscar for Murder on the Orient Express. In the years since her separation from Rossellini, Ingrid had regained much of her previous adoration from her American fans. Her career was coming to a close, however. In 1975, in the same year she divorced third husband Lars Schmidt, Ingrid found out that she had breast cancer. Despite her failing health she continued to work and completed her last film, Ingmar Bergman's Autumn Sonata, in 1978.
Ingrid's last acting role was in the 1982 television miniseries A Woman Called Golda, in which she portrayed Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir, a role that won her both an Emmy and a Golden Globe. Then, on August 29, 1982, on her 67th birthday, Ingrid lost her seven-year battle with cancer, and died in her London home. Her funeral was held in the Swedish church in West London. Her remains were cremated and her ashes were scattered off the coast of Sweden except for a tiny part, which were kept to be interred in the Norra Begravningsplatsen cemetery in Stockholm.
In her absence, Ingrid Bergman has left fans worldwide with an enduring legacy of over 50 films that are evidence of her lifelong dedication to the art of acting.
Family, personal life, relationships
Ingrid first married Dr. Petter Aron Lindstrom on July 10, 1937; she gave birth to their daughter, Pia Lindstrom on September 20, 1938. Pia, a veteran TV newscaster, is a longtime anchor and a Theater & Arts critic for WNBC-TV Channel 4 News in New York City. The couple divorced on March 1, 1950. Her second marriage to Rossellini, which occured on May 24, 1950, produced a son Robertino, and twin daughters, actress Isabella Rossellini, and Isotta Rossellini. On December 21, 1958, Ingrid married television producer Lars Schimdt; they divorced on February 1, 1978.
