Happy Birthday to Ingrid Bergman! Born 99 years ago in Stockholm, Bergman became known as “Sweden’s illustrious gift to Hollywood.” Her stunning beauty was matched only by her acting chops, as evidenced in her three Oscars for Gaslight (1944), Anastasia (1956), and Murder on the Orient Express (1974). Bergman was nominated four more times for For Whom the Bell Tolls (1943), The Bells of St. Mary’s (1945), Joan of Arc (1948), and Autumn Sonata (original Swedish title Höstsonaten; 1978). Oh, and she starred in a forgotten little film called Casablanca in 1942.
