[ing-grid]
Bergman, Ingrid, 1915-82, Swedish actress, b. Stockholm. Specializing in portrayals of strong, dignified, and sophisticated women, Bergman was acclaimed for her performance in Joan of Lorraine (1946) both on stage and on screen (1949). Her most notable films include Intermezzo (1939), Casablanca (1942), Notorious (1946), Stromboli (1950) and, with director Ingmar Bergman, Autumn Sonata (1978). She won Academy Awards for Gaslight (1944), Anastasia (1956), and Murder on the Orient Express (1974). She also won an Emmy Award (1982) for her portrayal of Golda Meir in the made-for-television film Golda. Bergman was married to Roberto Rossellini.

See her autobiography (1980); biography by C. Chandler (2007); L. J. Quirk, Films of Ingrid Bergman (1970).

(born Aug. 29, 1915, Stockholm, Swed.—died Aug. 29, 1982, London, Eng.) Swedish film and stage actress. After appearing in Intermezzo in Sweden, she went to the U.S. to act in the English-language version (1939). Her radiance and unaffected charm made her a star in films such as Casablanca (1942), Gaslight (1944, Academy Award), and Alfred Hitchcock's Spellbound (1945) and Notorious (1946). The scandal caused by her love affair with Roberto Rossellini (1949) kept her off the U.S. screen for seven years, and she made films in Europe before being welcomed back to Hollywood in Anastasia (1956, Academy Award). Her later films include Indiscreet (1958) and Murder on the Orient Express (1974, Academy Award).
