But [director] Alfred Hitchcock didn't say anything. He just sat there next to the camera, pulling on his cigar. Finally, around 11 a.m., I began to see in Ingrid's eyes that she was starting to come around. And for the first time all morning, the lines were coming out right. And just then Hitchcock said, 'Cut.' Hitch just sat and looked up at Ingrid and said, quietly, 'Good morning, Ingrid' ".

104 Industrialist Howard Hughes once bought every available seat from New York to Los Angeles to be sure she would accept a ride in his private plane.
105 Her luck was as phenomenal as her talent. In New York City, a Swedish couple praised a film of hers to their son, an elevator operator in the apartment building where one of film producer David O. Selznick's young talent scouts lived. Six months later, Ingrid was on her way to Hollywood. "I owe my whole career to that elevator boy", she would say laughingly.
106 When Ernest Hemingway told her she would have to cut off her hair for the role of Maria in For Whom the Bell Tolls (1943), she shot back, "To get that part, I'd cut my head off!"

107 Her famous love affair with the war photographer, Robert Capa was the basis for Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window (1954).

112 She wasn't nominated for Best Actress in her role as the sultry Ilsa, but for her role in For Whom the Bell Tolls (1943), losing to her close friend Jennifer Jones for The Song of Bernadette (1943).

Bergman said, "No, Jennifer, your Bernadette was better than my Maria.".
113 At her funeral service held at Saint Martin's-in-the-fields Church, there was nothing that was as touching as the moment when, a violin played the strains of 'As Time Goes By'.
114 Sergio Scaglietti, Ferrari's master coachbuilder and aluminum sculptor, shaped some the most beautiful Ferraris of the '50s and '60s, including the 375MM built in 1954 for her.

118 Turned down the role opposite Charlton Heston in Planet of the Apes (1968).

123 Attempts were made by Hollywood producers to change her name in 1939, with possibilities discussed such as Ingrid Berriman and Ingrid Lindstrom (actually her legal married name). Bergman refused, in part because she felt she had worked too hard to establish herself as an actress in Europe under her real name.

1 Performances in dramas where her characters were put through harrowing emotional wringers
2 Tall, naturally-curvaceous frame


1 [on Jean Renoir]: A force for life in everything he touches. A god and a poet!
2 [on Casablanca (1942)] I never knew how the picture was going to end, if I was really in love with my husband or Bogart. So I had no idea how I should play the character. I kept begging them to give me the ending but they'd say, 'We haven't made up our minds. We'll shoot it both ways'. We did the first ending and they said,'That's good, we won't bother with the other'.
3 [filming Anastasia (1956)] Yul Brynner was shorter, I suggested putting a little block under him. 'You think I want to play it standing on a box? I'll show the world what a big horse you are!' I never had a complex about my height after that.
4 Because I'm a Swede I always suffer in films, drive audiences out into the night sobbing. Look at The Bells of St. Mary's (1945). I was happy and gay but there had to be something wrong. So they gave me TB.
5 Hollywood was a terribly lonely place for me. I had wonderful associations with Humphrey Bogart, Gregory Peck, and all the others while I worked with them, but after they left the studios at night, they retired to their own circle of friends.
6 I work so hard before the camera and on the stage that I have neither the desire nor the energy to act in my private life
7 I am happy I was born Swedish because this means having a tough education -- at least it was in my time. But I couldn't live there, even when I was in my 20s. Sweden is too far from the rest of the world psychologically. There you feel confined on an island.
8 I always wanted to do comedies but nobody discovered this until my old age. They think all Swedes are like [Greta Garbo].
9 No form of art goes beyond ordinary consciousness as film does, straight to our emotions, deep into the twilight of the soul.
10 [Cary Grant] is quite remarkable, you know. I think [Audrey Hepburn] is now too old for him, and in his next picture he will be making love to someone like Jane Fonda.
11 Cancer victims who don't accept their fate, who don't learn to live with it, will only destroy what little time they have left.
12 Acting is the best medicine in the world - if you're not feeling well, it goes away because you are busy thinking about something that isn't yourself. We actors are very fortunate people.
13 If you took acting away from me, I'd stop breathing.
14 Having a home, husband, and child ought to be enough for any woman's life. I mean, that's what we are meant for, isn't it? But still I think every day is a lost day. As if only half of me is alive. The other half is pressed down in a bag and suffocated.
15 I made so many films which were more important, but the only one people ever want to talk about is that one with [Humphrey Bogart].
16 I have had my different husbands, my families. I am fond of them all and I visit them all. But deep inside me there is the feeling that I belong to show business."
17 I have grown up alone. I've taken care of myself. I worked, earned money and was independent at 18.
18 I can do everything with ease on the stage, whereas in real life I feel too big and clumsy. So I didn't choose acting; acting chose me.
19 I don't think anyone has the right to intrude in your life, but they do. I would like people to separate the actress and the woman.
20 I always felt guilty. My whole life.
21 There are advantages to being a star, though - you can always get a table in a full restaurant.
22 It is not whether you really cry. It's whether the audience thinks you are crying.
23 A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous.
24 Be yourself. The world worships the original.
25 You must train your intuition - you must trust the small voice inside you which tells you exactly what to say, what to decide.
26 In Paris, when the picture came out [Casablanca (1942)], they weren't too pleased with it. They didn't like the political point of view. The picture was taken off immediately and was never sold to television. A while ago, it was brought in and opened in five theatres in Paris, as a new movie. They had a big gala opening where I appeared and people were absolutely crazy about it.
27 I was the shyest human ever invented, but I had a lion inside me that wouldn't shut up.
28 Time is shortening. But every day that I challenge this cancer and survive is a victory for me.
29 I don't worry about it because we are all growing old. If I were the only one I would worry. But we're all in the same boat, and all of my friends are coming with me. We all go toward old age. How many years left we don't know. We just have to accept it.
30 Happiness is good health and a bad memory.
31 I don't regret a thing I've done. I only regret the things I didn't do.
32 Until 45 I can play a woman in love. After 55 I can play grandmothers. But between those ten years, it is difficult for an actress.
33 I have no regrets. I wouldn't have lived my life the way I did if I was going to worry about what people were going to say.
34 I remember one day sitting at the pool and suddenly the tears were streaming down my cheeks. Why was I so unhappy? I had success. I had security. But it wasn't enough. I was exploding inside.
35 I've never sought success in order to get fame and money; it's the talent and the passion that count in success.
36 People didn't expect me to have emotions like other women.
37 [to daughter Isabella Rossellini, on acting] Keep it simple. Make a blank face and the music and the story will fill it in.
38 I've gone from saint to whore and back to saint again, all in one lifetime.
39 The best way to keep young is to keep going in whatever it is that keeps you going. With me that's work, and a lot of it. And when a job is finished, relax and have fun.
