Ingrid Bergman biography: After school graduation, the lonely and shy girl decided to become an actress. In 1934 she debuted in the Swedish film Munkbrogreven (1935). She soon rose to stardom and by 1936 was Sweden's leading film star. In May 1939 she arrived in New York to do a remake of Intermezzo (A Love Story). In Casablanca (1942) premiered and made her a star of the first rank. Her acting in her next film, For Whom the Bell Tolls (1943), won her an Academy Award nomination. In 1943 she began working on Gaslight (1944), which won her the 1944 Academy Award. She followed that film with such classics as Alfred Hitchcock's Spellbound (1945) with Gregory Peck and Notorious (1946) with Cary Grant. She returned to Europe after her affair with Italian director Roberto Rossellini. From 1951 to 1955 she and her husband did a series of films that were ahead of their time but were generally not received well. Tired and convinced that she would never make a successful film with Rosselini, she returned to Hollywood and triumphed in Anastasia (1956), for which she received another Oscar. She received a third Oscar for
her role in Murder on the Orient Express (1974). She and Roberto Rossellini made 6 movies together: Europa '51 (1952), Giovanna d'Arco al rogo (1954), La paura (1954), Siamo donne (1953), Stromboli (1950) and Viaggio in Italia (1954). In 1960 she became the third performer to win the Triple Crown of Acting: Oscars for Gaslight (1944), Anastasia (1956), Murder on the Orient Express (1974), a Tony for "Joan of Lorraine" (1947) and Emmys in 1960 and 1982. In 1978 she starred in Ingmar Bergman's Höstsonaten (1978), probably her best film from an artistic standpoint. Her last role was in the television film A Woman Called Golda (1982). She died in London on August 30, 1982, the day after having a small birthday party with a few friends.

Ingrid Bergman quotes

"I've gone from saint to whore and back to saint again, all in one lifetime." "I have no regrets. I wouldn't have lived my life the way I did if I was going to worry about what people were going to say." "I don't regret a thing I've done. I only regret the things I didn't do." "Happiness is good health and a bad memory." "A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous."

Her luck was as phenomenal as her talent. In New York City, a Swedish couple praised a film of hers to their son, an elevator operator in the apartment building where one of film producer David O. Selznick's young talent scouts lived. Six months later, Ingrid was on her way to Hollywood. "I owe my whole career to that elevator boy", she would say laughingly. She had a reputation as a tough negotiator. David O. Selznick said of her, "Her angelic nature is not above being tarnished by matters of mere money".

During the making of Casablanca (1942), Humphrey Bogart's wife Mayo Methot continually accused him of having an affair with Bergman, often confronting him in his dressing room before a shot. Bogart would come onto the set in a rage.

Her former French estate was up for sale for $3 million. The country compound, comprising five buildings on 18.5 acres in the pastoral town of Choisille, is located 30 minutes from the center of Paris. The property includes 10 bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a greenhouse, a 55-foot indoor-outdoor pool and a small barn.

At Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank, there's a special area at the museum devoted strictly to Casablanca (1942) that includes Humphrey Bogart's and her clothes from the film, the film's script, its costumes, and even the small piano on which Sam "played it again" for Rick and Ilsa.

Was a good friend of Ernest Hemingway, whom she called "papa" He, in turn, called her "daughter".
