Ingrid Bergman was born on August 29, 1915. Her father, Justus Bergman, Swede, a painter by vocation, owned fotomagazinom in Stockholm, and painted portraits. Mother, German, came from a bourgeois family. They were happy together. Undoubtedly, the death of the mother Ingrid, when the girl was only three years as the death of his father, when she was thirteen, had a great influence. Justus Bergman saw the daughter of opera star. Ingrid was not eight years old when she began taking singing lessons.

After the death of their parents, Bergman brought Uncle Otto and Aunt Gould, shaped it into a lyceum - the most expensive school for girls in Stockholm. In autumn 1933, she entered the Royal dramatic school.

Her debut film was due to film director Gustavo Mulanderu. He quickly realized that Miss Ingrid Bergman has a so-called "magic of the stars."

After reviewing the first sample, the girl upset: "Maybe if I tried to, it could get better." This phrase in the Swedish cinema has become her trademark. Almost after every scenes footage she used to say: "I think I could be better." This led to what in film crew with her appearance joke went: "And here comes Could-be-better".

In eighteen years she has acted in a comedy Adolfsona "The Count of Munkbro, successfully coped with the role of servant Elzy. The Swedish film studio then offered her a contract. Bergman left drama school and began taking dance lessons, plastics and diction of the great actress Anna Nori.

Difficult to reconstruct a chain of events that led Ingrid in Hollywood. Undoubtedly, what has happened is largely due to the film "Intermezzo" (1936). The idea of staging it belonged to Gustave Mulanderu. The actress played a beautiful, lonely, very talented pianist - music teacher, who falls in love with the famous violinist and happily married. Due to the success of the picture in many countries around the world, the young performer drew the attention of Hollywood producer David Selznik wishing to re-screen "Intermezzo". At a meeting with an actress he had put forward conditions: first, to change the name, and secondly, vyschipat eyebrows, thirdly, to do something with teeth, and fourthly, to provide the rest of make-up artist. "Better, I never would you have taken," - cut Bergman. The famous producer was taken aback and took all the terms and conditions.

July 10, 1937 Ingrid Bergman married with three decades of dentists Peter Lindstremom to be met even while studying at the Royal School of Drama.

After seven months and ten days they were married. In the family, daughter Pia.

Bergman was happy "purchase" for Hollywood. However, her first job at Selznika - Intermezzo, a Love of History "(1939) - is not allocated to a standard Hollywood production. Reviews favorably, although it is cool enough, welcomed the debut of a young Swedish.

Ingrid did not immediately managed to find their own individual style to create a new type of heroine. She has successfully acted on Broadway, will be pleased to play in the summer season, Anna Christie, took part in three Hollywood films. One of them, "Dr. Dzhekile and Mr. Heide, Ingrid made the first attempt to escape from cooked for her exquisite line.

The film "Casablanca" (1942) Michael Bergman Kertitsa put forward in a number of leading Hollywood stars. The actress has created an outstanding image of women, is torn between feeling and duty. Along with the brilliant Humphrey Bogart, she told the touching story of the great Hollywood love. The film had a stunning success and remains one of the most popular in the United States.

"It was not cold majesty and proud detachment predecessor [Garbo], she was surprisingly earth, touchingly vulnerable, gives the impression of a natural modesty and charm, - says Vladimir Solovyov Russian cinema. - Individuality Bergman taila something fascinating in itself. Around her, it seemed, enjoyed the atmosphere of extraordinary freshness and purity. The game was a mixture of inexpressible grace, poetic grace and quiet realism, emotional generosity and inner freedom. "

Bergman luxuriously filmed in his first color film "For whom the bell tolls" (1943). Her partner Gary Cooper said: "Ingrid has a one of those actresses with whom unusually easy. I do not have to wait until it is dealt with her makeup. Or hair. It this just does not think. But it raises each episode, because it is extremely natural. "

"I loved his Mary - writes in his book" My Life "Bergman. - When I got this role, then started to work without sleep and rest. I have studied everything that Hemingway wrote about it. I disconnect from all over the world, trying to infiltrate the essence of my heroine. I knew: a woman who loves when completely forget about themselves, about their interests. The only thing as she thinks - it is about a man whom she loves, which means it is for him as it might make him happy. And is it just for him. x3c...x3e It was a wonderful, huge, beautiful role. A short hair became extremely fashionable in America. All the women wanted to have a haircut like my Maria. "

Ingrid came to the new proposals. At this time it was a main role in a pair of Charles Buaye in the thriller "Gas Light" (1944).

Husband-maniac puts the fear of torture refined beauty of a living hero: when the light in the gas horns merknet, freezes in the life of Ingrid, highlighted features of rounded person, to open eyes - waiting madness, suffering ... Bergman has shown a mature dramatic skills and gained the two most prestigious awards - Oscar and Golden Globe.

From 1940 until the end of 1945 on Ingrid acted in eleven movies, and her annual income was 60 thousand dollars. In New York, the joke went: "Look, today I saw a movie with Bergman." The point is that the screens were displayed simultaneously with the resounding success of several of its paintings.

In the movie "Zavorozhenny" (1945) Alfred Hitchcock, she played the role of a young woman - a doctor, a psychiatrist working at an expensive spa hotel. Here, the romantic heroine of Hollywood suddenly appears smart, independent, not "romantic" woman.

The painting has a lot of money. Building on the success, Hitchcock put "into disrepute". At this time, partner Ingrid appeared Cary Grant. When the film was finished, Grant made immortal phrase: "I think that the Academy should establish a special annual prize for Bergman, regardless of whether it was or not!"

Ingrid has long wanted to play Zhannu Orleans. Many theater argued that Ingrid can be considered a "movie only" in play "Jeanne Lorraine M. Anderson is waiting for its failure. But she still risked. In November 1946, a New York premiere. U Bergman, it was his own credo: "On the stage you a different person. You play the other person and become that person, somehow that exempts from your own problems. But you should go on stage and work. Vpolsily not work, thinking that you have to do it, and you own it all the same features poderi. No! If you open your mouth, open it as it should. Do not do anything by half. Do everything in your power. Otherwise, you will not believe. " To become Joan of Arc, to breathe life into it, there must be quite extraordinary, unusual gift. Ingrid had them off. At this time it subdued not only visitors, but also criticism. Howard Barnes wrote in The New York Gerald Tribune: Radiant Ingrid Bergman made a theatrical magic in a very loose contents of the "Joan of Lorraine." Her maid of Orleans leaves the memory of great satisfaction and gratitude. Celebrated screen actress said that she refers to just incomparable masters, which make us believe myself. "Victor Fleming hot pursuit shot the film" Joan of Arc "(1949) with Ingrid Bergman in the title role.

Impressed by the stunning actress at the movies directed by Roberto Rossellini Italian "Open City" and "Payza.

She then took a letter: "I saw your films" Open City "and" Payza, and they have made a deep impression on me. If you need a Swedish actress, perfectly speaking in English, not zabyvshaya its German, something understood in the French and in Italian, knowing only the "Ti amo" [ "love you"], I was ready to come to make with you the movie. It is already ten years old, I feel locked in a system which does not give me to become happy, and beyond that I want to break free. with you. Ingrid Bergman. "Rossellini says unknown Swede from Hollywood that he was going to shoot" ; Stromboli, land of God. "You can think about working together ... The meeting appointed a bar in Paris′ Saint-Georges.

They meet. She likes the role of Karina - live sinful woman who can lie, capable of betrayal ... Half a year later Ingrid again come to Rome - to Roberto. He shows it to Italy. Bergman comes into raptures. "I found a place where I want to live." Journal of Life publishes photo happy couple ...

Husband Peter Lindström receives from her a letter from Italy. She writes that in love with Roberto, and happy. Peter truly does not understand it. "This relationship is not fair and good hostess ..."

For four months, Bergman has lost the status of "First Lady of Hollywood", feeling miserable and dejected. It is believed that betrayed his friends and all those who participated in the financing and the creation of her paintings. Ingrid left her husband and ten-year daughter and it was ... was pregnant by a man who had not yet departed with his wife.

The film "Stromboli, land of God", or forbidden to show or be ostracized. Back in America, Ingrid, and could not for six years, shot at her husband. Shortly after the shooting of "Stromboli" Ingrid gave birth to a son, Roberto, and divorced from Peter Lindstremom, daughter Pia was left with his father. Many Americans′ behavior star plunged into shock.

March 14, 1950 at a meeting of U.S. Senate Edwin C. Johnson of the State of Colorado made a dramatic statement: "According to our laws, no foreign national, leading to so low, can not step back on American soil." Despite the scandal, the actress feel quite happy in Italy and soon gave birth to twins Izottu, Ingrid and Isabella.

Unfortunately, subsequent work tandem Rossellini - Bergman: "Europe" (1951), "We, the women" (1953), "Journey to Italy" (1954), "Fear" (1954) were not so successful from the of the different personalities of creative director and actress.

Rossellini made for Bergman Oneggera oratorio "Joan of Arc at the stake" (1954).

With this performance, will soon film, they overtake the whole of Europe. During the tour the tour creative differences spouses deepened. Ingrid Rossellini not allowed to play with other directors. But there have been a happy exception: it was successfully removed from Jean Renoir ( "Helen and the man") and Anatole Litvak ( "Anastasia"). During the execution of the role of Anastasia in the movie about the life of the daughter of last Russian tsar actress received a second "Oscar" (1956).

"Life with Robert was never boring." Ingrid Bergman deliver the words are already before the divorce: Rossellini fell in love with his wife, producer, and appeared with Ingrid fans, among them elegant Lars Schmidt - Swede engaged Private theater on Broadway. Bergman beginning to act in the play "Tea and sympathy", tied its fate to the theater: a direct contact with the audience excited her, making the play even better.

Divorce from Rossellini was humiliating to the struggle for children. Bergman finds happiness only in America, where it is not forgotten, but rather met with placards: "Happy return !"...

Lars Schmidt was looking for his wife′s play, finds directors. Almost every year for twenty years a new show with the participation of Ingrid. Some of them have become TV: "Turn of the Screw" (1959), "24 hours in the life of women" (1961), "Gedda Gabler" (1963), "Human Voice" (1967) and others for the role of The Turn of the Screw Bergman won his first televised award - an Emmy.

In staging the play Henrik Ibsen "Gedda Gabler" partners Ingrid were great actors Michael Redgrave, Ralph Richardson and Trevor Howard. "I always wanted to play Geddu - recognized Bergman. - An interesting role, and such a strange character. The play was a classic, but I wanted to try yourself in the classics. "

In the movie she filmed rare. The film "Do you like Brahms" (1960) showed that Bergman is still good, charming and attractive. While in America, this film criticized for immorality with the same vehemence with which praised in Europe for serious study of the problem of loneliness. But the funny comedy "cactus flower" (1969), in which the actress played a shine to the old girls who managed to marry his boss himself, enjoyed extraordinary success in the United States.

In 1970 Bergman was in American movies: "Walk a spring rain" (1970), "From mixed record Mrs Basil Frenkueyler" (1973), Detective "Murder in the Orient Express" (1974). In the latter she played a nurse-Swede Greta Olsen. In the modestly dressed unattractive heroine dish hardly could find fun hot lady, shine in the "Flower of the cactus." Bergman received the Oscar for the role of the second plan.

During the shooting of the famous detective Ingrid was already seriously ill - she underwent surgery for the breast cancer and received chemotherapy.

Despite that Bergman was able to create the deepest of the images, embodied by the on-screen ( "Autumn Sonata", directed by Ingmar Bergman).

Bergman partner, actress Liv Ullmann, recalls: "I thought, experiencing so much in life, she had the right to nurse a grievance, and being a Hollywood star, can be capricious and sentimental. Instead, I learned the most indomitable woman of all those encountered in life. "

Directed by Ingmar Bergman said: "Someone said it:" Ingrid is married to the camera and the camera loves Ingrid. "That is true. The camera loves these actors. x3c...x3e Ingrid always gets pleasure from his performance. In It is tireless passion for the game, it was a real actress. She has tremendous baggage of experience, technology, imagination, emotions, fantasies, and even black humor. I am very sorry that we did not worked before, because it is a wonderful property that promotes writing roles specially for the actor. "

The critics were ecstatic. In the United States Stanley Kauffmann wrote: "The game is Ingrid Bergman shocking. All of the past decade, we love it. But not many of us thought it an outstanding actress. In the hands of the master, she rose to heights of true. " All were unanimous in their opinion that the Liv midnight dramatic dialogue and Ingrid will be included in the category of classic episodes in the history of cinema. Actress won prizes in New York critics and the most prestigious Italian prize "Donatello".

She was very much like to play this role ...
