I made so many films which were more important, but the only one people ever want to talk about is that one with Bogart
In 1949, Ingrid became the centre of a major scandal when it was revealed that she had abandoned Pia, her ten year old daughter, to live with the Italian film director, Roberto Rossellini.
Ingrid was born in Stockholm, Sweden. Despite shyness she enrolled in the Swedish Royal Theatre but decided that stage acting was not for her. Her screen debut in Munkbrogreven, The Count of the Monk's Bridge (1935), was followed by challenging roles in such Swedish films as the original Intermezzo (1936) and En kvinnas ansikte, A Woman's Face (1938).
Bergman went to the USA to reprise her role in Intermezzo opposite Leslie Howard. The film's critical and commercial success instantly established Bergman as a star. She achieved tremendous popularity through a series of critical and commercial successes that included Casablanca (1942) with Humphrey Bogart1, For Whom the Bell Tolls (1943), Gaslight (1944) and two thrillers directed by Alfred Hitchcock2, Spellbound (1945) and Notorious (1946).
She fell in love with the Italian director Roberto Rossellini, while performing in his film Stromboli (1950). Bergman left both her husband and daughter for Rossellini. The ensuing scandal3 led to her ostracization from the US film industry and forced her to return to Europe, where she appeared in Italian and French films. Ingrid returned to the Hollywood scene4 in 1956 to play Anastasia (1956).
Her last role was that of Golda Meir, the Israeli prime minister, in A Woman Called Golda (1981). She was posthumously awarded an Emmy Award in 1982.
