Updated for her centennial – of one of Hollywood’s most beloved and enduring figures, Ingrid Bergman. A fantastic actress and stunning beauty, Bergman’s appeal has not waned through the decades, her long career admired by several generations of movie-goers.
I hadn’t the time or inclination to publish a post on this day. But it’s bothering me that I would choose to ignore my father’s favorite, Ingrid.

Great post, Ingirid Bergman was an amazing star.
Thanks! Glad you liked it.
Love this Aurora! Thank you for posting 🙂
This was great! I loved the first two photos, Ingrid looked so cute in her early 20’s!
Thanks as always, Le! Glad you liked it.
Ingrid Bergman is probably in my all time top 3 of actresses along with Claudette Colbert and Greer Garson.
I love all the photos here and films mentioned. I would love to add two films I don’t see mentioned here which I think are worth a viewing: Adam Had Four Sons and The Inn Of The Sixth Happiness. The latter being a real good one.
If you ever saw Gregory Peck in The Keys Of The Kingdom, you would definitely enjoy The Inn Of The Sixth Happiness. The only negative is that is shown in letterbox. Well negative to me because I still have the old flat screen TV’s. I don’t know what I will do when my flat screen TV’s break, most of my favorite films/DVDS are 4:3 aspect B/W movies. I really don’t know why the classic film community isn’t up in arms over television manufacturers only making them rectangular type TV sets now.
Haven’t seen either of the films you mention, John. I’m gonna have to quit my day job to watch everything I haven’t seen!
I have a fairly large widescreen TV and love it, but 4:3 movies appear as such within the screen. The aspect ratio stays true to the original with dark stripes, if you will, on either side filling in the screen. I would be up in arms if they stretched the movie to fit.
