  • Notes 
    • Both of her parents died when she was still a young girl, and she was raised by relatives. Because of her inheritance, however, she was able to pursue a course of study at the Royal Dramatic Theater in Stockholm.
      In 1934, she had a small role as a maid in her first film, Munkbrogreven. She continued to act in the Swedish cinema, eventually earning leading roles and making a total of twelve films in Europe over a five-year period. She came to Hollywood on a one-time picture deal in 1939, to star in Intermezzo. It was an immediate hit, signing her to a seven-year contract. After a stint on Broadway, she starred in three successful 1941 films before she made the leap to superstardom, including Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
      In 1942, she starred with Humphrey Bogart in one of the greatest love stories the movies have ever produced, Casablanca. The film was a smash hit, establishing Bogart as a romantic leading man and Bergman as a sexy, vulnerable star with an enormous box-office appeal. She was the hottest female star in Hollywood. Every film she graced was a box office bonanza, including the last three she made under her contract to Selznick: Spellbound, The Bell of St. Mary's, and Notorious.
      Unfortunately, Bergman's personal life caused her spiraling downward. Her descent, however, was not fatal until she made Stromboli (1950) for Italian film director Roberto Rossellini. Though Bergman was married to Dr. Peter Lindstrom and had a child be him, she fell in love with Rossellini, and had a baby by him. She became a pariah in America virtually overnight.
      She was even denounced on the floor of the U.S. Senate, where she was called "Hollywood's apostle of degradation." The public flames of indignation and outrage over her infidelity were fanned by the fact that her image had been particularly pure and wholesome. It didn't matter that she quickly divorced Lindstrom and Rossellini. The damage was done.
      Bergman's turnaround occurred when Twentieth Century-Fox took a chance and hired her to star in Anastasia. Not only was the film a huge hit, she even won her second Oscar for Best Actress. The love affair between America and Ingrid Bergman was on again. In fact, over the ensuing decades, despite relatively few significant films, the actress became even more adored and admired by her fans than ever before, perhaps because she survived the scandal with so much dignity.
      Perhaps the best performance of her later years was given in her very last film, Autumn Sonata (1978), in which her life became full circle. It was made by Swedish director Ingmar Bergman and concerned the coming to terms of a dying concert pianist with her estranged daughter. Ingrid Bergman's haunting, autobiographical performance, for which she was nominated for yet another Academy Award as Best Actress, was a fitting end to her long and illustrious career. She died of cancer in London on August 29, 1982.
