INGRID BERGMAN BIOGRAPHY & FILMOGRAPHY:

Ingrid Bergman was born August 29th, 1915 in Stockholm, Sweden.  She lost her mother at the age of three and her father at the age of thirteen.  Ingrid then went to go live with an aunt who sadly passed away six months later from heart failure.  She was then sent to live with another aunt and uncle who raised her along with five other children of their own.  When she was seventeen years old she auditioned for the Royal Dramatic Theater in Stockholm, and was accepted. 
 
On her first summer break from the school she got a part time job at a Swedish Film Studio which caused her to leave the Dramatic Theater in Stockholm to work in the film industry. She began with a small bit in, "Munkbrogreven" (1935) following just an extra role in the film, "Landskamp" (1932). 
 
At the age of twenty one, on July 10th, 1937, Bergman married Petter Lindstrom, a dentist and on September 20th, 1938, the couple had daughter Pia Lindstrom.  Bergman continued to be a mother and still work in the film industry in Sweden.  After about 12 film credits to her name, she was signed by a Hollywood producer to work as the lead in, "Intermezzo" (1939) which was an English remake of her 1936 Swedish language film. The film was a huge success and she became an overnight sensation in the United States.  She was different from many of the leading ladies in Hollywood in that she was quite tall for an actress, and rarely used make up.  
 
Her most recognizable role was when she worked with Humphrey Bogart on, "Casablanca" (1942) which also starred Peter Lorre, Claude Rains and Sydney Greenstreet, followed by her role on her first colored film, "Whom the Bell Tolls" (1943) co-starring Gary Cooper, Katina Paxinou, Akim Tamiroff and Duncan Renaldo, for which she received her first Academy Award nomination for Best Actress.  She did not win for this role, but shortly after in 1944, she won the Academy Award for Best Actress on "Gaslight" (1944) also starring Charles Boyer, Joseph Cotten, Terry Moore at age 14 and Angela Lansbury in her screen debut.  
 
She was admired by many of her fellow actresses and again received her third nomination for Best Actress with her role on, "The Bells of St. Mary's" (1945) co-starring Bing Crosby, Henry Travers, Rhys Williams, William Gargan and Una O'Connor and amazingly again in 1948 for the epic, "Joan of Arc" which also starred Jose Ferrer, Frances L. Sullivan and J. Carrol Naish.  The film itself was a flop, but her acting skills were still noticed.  The movie was remade to full length in 1998 and when released in 2004, audiences and critics could then appreciate the story
behind the film.
 
Bergman was juggling a career of motherhood, film and stage acting and she did not slow down.  In the 40's she starred in three more films, "Spellbound" (1945), "Notorious" (1946) and "Under Capricorn" (1949) and was also working on stage performances in, "Lilliom", "Anne Christie" and "Joan of Lorraine".   When working with director, Robert Rossellini, on her next film, "Stromboli" (1949), she fell in love with him and soon fell pregnant.  A son was born, Roberto Ingmar Rossellini on February 7th, 1950.  This overseas pregnancy caused a lot of problems for her in the US and she ended up exiling herself to Italy leaving her husband Peter and daughter behind.
 
Bergman married Rossellini on May 24th, 1950 and two years later gave birth to twin daughters, Isabella and Isotta. She again, continued to work in the industry appearing in a couple of Italian films such as, "Giovanna d'Arco al Rogo" (1954) for her husband but sadly just a couple years later, their marriage too ended in divorce.  

Bergman remained living in Italy and continued to pursue her career with a role on, "Elena and Her Men" (1956), this film was not well received, however, her performance is still remembered as one of her best, however her role on, "Anastasia" (1956), won her 2nd Academy Award for Best Actress.  Her award was accepted on her behalf by her friend Cary Grant.

Ingrid never slowed down throughout her entire career.  She continued to work on films, television appearances and even stage performances in America and Europe.  Ingrid appeared in the television drama, "The Turn of The Screw" (1959) for which she won an Emmy Award for single performance by an Actress. 

Bergman also entered her third marriage to producer, Lars Schmidt on December 21st, 1958, however again in 1975 she was divorced. 

Ingrid Bergman did not let anything get in her way from continuing to do what she knows best.  She received her third Academy Award and her first for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in," Murder on the Orient Express" (1974) and four years later again, she received her seventh Academy Award nomination for her role on, "Autumn Sonata" (1978) which was also her final film performance.  She did have one more television role on the mini series, "A Woman Called Golda" (1982) in which she was again honored with her second Emmy Award for Best Actress for her portrayal of an Israeli Prime Minister.

That same year, Ingrid Bergman lost her life to a long battle fighting with breast cancer on August 29th, 1982 on her 67th birthday in London, England.   Her body was cremated in her home country of Sweden.  Ingrid was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and is considered by many film critics to be a cultural icon of the 20th century.
