  • Famed for her saintly, natural beauty, Ingrid Bergman was the most popular actress of the 1940s; admired equally by audiences and critics, she enjoyed blockbuster after blockbuster -- until an unprecedented scandal threatened to destroy her career. Born August 29, 1915, in Stockholm, Sweden, Bergman was only two years old when her mother died; her father passed on a decade later, and the spinster aunt who had become her guardian perished only a few months after that. Her inheritance allowed her to study at Stockholm's Royal Dramatic Theatre, and in 1934 she made her screen debut after signing to Svenskfilmindustri with a small role in Munkbrovregen. Bergman's first lead performance followed a year later in Brunninger, and with the success of the 1936 melodrama Valborgsmassoafen, she rose to become one of Sweden's biggest stars. Later that year, she starred in the romance Intermezzo, which eventually made its way to New York where it came to the attention of producer David O. Selznick. After signing a Hollywood contract, she relocated to America where her first film, 1939's Intermezzo: A Love Story, was an English-language remake of her earlier success. Bergman's fresh-scrubbed Nordic beauty set her squarely apart from the stereotypical movie starlet, and quickly both Hollywood executives and audiences became enchanted with her. After briefly returning to Sweden to appear in 1940's Juninatten, Selznick demanded she return to the U.S., but without any projects immediately available he pointed her to Broadway to star in Liliom. Bergman was next loaned to MGM for 1941's Adam Had Four Sons, followed by Rage in Heaven. She then appeared against type as a coquettish bad girl in the latest screen adaptation Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. However, it was 1942's Casablanca which launched her to superstardom; cast opposite Humphrey Bogart after a series of other actresses rejected the picture, she was positively radiant, her chemistry with Bogart the stuff of pure magic. Now a major box-office draw, she won the coveted lead in 1943's For Whom the Bell Tolls with the blessing of the novel's author, Ernest Hemingway; when her performance earned an Academy Award nomination, every studio in town wanted to secure her talents.Bergman next starred in Sam Wood's Saratoga Trunk, but because the studio, Warner Bros., wanted to distribute more timely material during wartime, the picture's release was delayed until 1944. As a result, audiences next saw her in Gaslight, starring opposite Charles Boyer; another rousing success, her performance won Best Actress honors from both the Oscar and Golden Globe voters. The 1945 Spellbound, directed by Alfred Hitchcock, was another massive hit, and a year later they reunited for Notorious. Sandwiched in between was The Bells of St. Mary's, and all told, the three pictures helped push Bergman to the position of Hollywood's top female box-office attraction. Upon fulfilling her contract with Selznick, she began freelancing, starring as a prostitute in 1948's Arch of Triumph; the public, however, reacted negatively to her decision to play against type, and later that year she was even more saintly than usual as the title heroine in Joan of Arc. Expected to become a blockbuster, the film performed to only moderate success, and after a similarly tepid response to the 1949 Hitchcock thriller Under Capricorn, she began to reconsider her options. Like so many viewers around the world, Bergman had been highly moved by director Roberto Rossellini's Italian neorealist masterpiece Roma Citta Aperta; announcing her desire to work with him, she accepted the lead in 1950's Stromboli. During production, Bergman and Rossellini fell in love, and she became pregnant with his child; at the time, she was still married to her first husband, Swedish doctor Peter Lindstrom, and soon she was assailed by criticism the world over. After divorcing Lindstrom, Bergman quickly married Rossellini, but the damage was already done: Stromboli was bann

QUOTES FROM Ingrid Bergman CHARACTERS

Anna Kalman
Can't you count to 12?
Carl Banks
I can count fine, but this stepping out and stepping back...
Rick Blaine
Last night we said a great many things. You said I was to do the thinking for both of us. Well, I've done a lot of it since then, and it all adds up to one thing: you're getting on that plane with Victor where you belong.
Ilsa
But, Richard, no, I... I...
Rick Blaine
Now, you've got to listen to me! You have any idea what you'd have to look forward to if you stayed here? Nine chances out of ten, we'd both wind up in a concentration camp. Isn't that true, Louie?
Capt. Louis Renault
I'm afraid Major Strasser would insist.
Ilsa
You're saying this only to make me go.
Rick Blaine
I'm saying it because it's true. Inside of us, we both know you belong with Victor. You're part of his work, the thing that keeps him going. If that plane leaves the ground and you're not with him, you'll regret it. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life.
Ilsa
But what about us?
Rick Blaine
We'll always have Paris. We didn't have, we, we lost it until you came to Casablanca. We got it back last night.
Ilsa
When I said I would never leave you.
Ilsa
Play it, Sam. Play 'As Time Goes By.'
Dr. Anthony Edwardes
Oh, by the way - why are we going to Rockester for?
Dr. Constance Peterson
Well we're going to visit Dr. Brulov.
Dr. Anthony Edwardes
Oh oh oh, that's the gut who doesn't like sore-spotters
Dr. Constance Peterson
He was my analyst and psycho-analyzed me.
Dr. Anthony Edwardes
Really, and what was wrong with you?
Dr. Constance Peterson
oh all analysts get psycho-analyze by other analysts, before they start practicing.
Dr. Anthony Edwardes
Ohh; that's to make sure that they are not too crazy.
Dr. Constance Peterson
Apparently the mind is never to sick to make jokes ABOUT psycho-analysis.
Dr. Anthony Edwardes
I'm sorry. I'm a pig.
Dr. Constance Peterson
No, I'm am; I keep forgetting you're a patient.
Dr. Anthony Edwardes
So do I. When I hold you like this I feel entirely well. Will you love me just as much when I'm normal?
Dr. Constance Peterson
Oh I'll be insane - about you. [girlish giggling]
Alfred Munson
There is no sincerity like a woman telling a lie.
Anna Kalman
How dare he make love to me and not be a married man?
Anna Kalman
The one who looked like a Greek statue. He talked like a Greek statue. I don't think he knew more than a dozen words. Scotch and soda and one or two more.-

Ugarte
Heh, you know, watching you just now with the Deutsche Bank, one would think you've been doing this all your life.
Rick Blaine
Oh, what makes you think I haven't?
Ugarte
Oh, n-n-n-nothing, but when you first came to Casablanca, I thought...
Rick Blaine
You thought what?
Ilsa
You thought what?
Ugarte
What right do I have to think?
Ilsa
Play it once Sam,for old time's sake.Play it Sam.Play, "As time Goes By".

Ilsa

Rick Blaine
And you never will. But, I've got a job to do, too. Where I'm going, you can't follow. What I've got to do, you can't be any part of, Ilsa. I'm no good at being noble, but it doesn't take much to see that the problems of three little people don't amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world. Someday you'll understand that.
Ilsa

[singing] You must remember this / A kiss is but a kiss / A sigh is just a sigh / The fundamental things apply / As time goes by / And when two lovers woo / They still say "I love you" / On that you can rely / No matter what the future brings . . .

They grab Ugarte and she walks in. Well, thats the way it goes, one in one out.
Capt. Louis Renault
Realizing the importance of the case, my men are rounding up twice the usual number of suspects.
Carl Headwaiter
The second largest? That wouldn't impress Rick. The leading banker in Amsterdam is now the pastry chef in our kitchen.
Rick Blaine
