Ingrid Bergman: The Magical Star of Cinema

4 mins read

Ingrid Bergman was one of the first artists who insisted on repeating the scene even when the directors were satisfied, who received fan letters from stars like James Stewart, and who played a role in the destruction of the studio contract system in Hollywood. She was one of only six actresses in the history of the Academy Awards to receive more than two Oscars. She was not only one of the greatest actresses of Hollywood’s Golden Age; she also worked with countless important directors from European cinema. Casablanca, Autumn Sonata, Notorious, Spellbound, Murder on the Orient Express were just a few of the productions she became legendary for.

We wanted to commemorate Ingrid Bergman on August 29, the day she was born and the day she passed away, with some little known details about her.

* In 1939, Hollywood producers wanted to change her name to Ingrid Berriman or Ingrid Lindstrom, but she rejected the offer because she thought she was too busy with her acting career in Europe.

* She is fluent in English, Swedish, French, German, German, Italian and has performed in all five languages.

* Sergio Scaglietti, one of the most important designers of Ferrari, was inspired by her to design the “Ingrid” model

* Folk singer Woody Guthrie wrote a song called “Ingrid Bergman” to honor her, but she died before he had a chance to record it. The song can be heard on Billy Bragg & Wilco’s 1998 album Mermaid Avenue.

* She played the role of Joan of Arc three times in her career: on stage in 1946 (Joan of Lorraine by Maxwell Anderson), in Joan of Arc in 1948 and in Giovanna d’Arco al rogo in 1954.

* She was a close friend of the writer Ernest Hemingway, whom she called “father”. He also called her “my daughter”.

She was not related to the Swedish director Ingmar Bergman, but it is a great coincidence that the director’s wife was a Swedish actress named Ingrid Bergman.

* When She died, his ashes were scattered in a sea off the coast of Sweden.
