General Admission

The Oscar, Golden Globe, Emmy and Tony award-winning Ingrid Bergman (1915–1982) worked with some of the world's greatest filmmakers, appeared in some of the finest movies ever made and acted in her native Swedish, as well as German, Italian, French and English.

With her Hollywood career kicking-off with the 1939 English-language remake of her 1936 Swedish film Intermezzo, she is best remembered for Casablanca (1942), For Whom the Bell Tolls (1943), and Alfred Hitchcock's Spellbound (1945) and Notorious (1946).

While saluting her cinematic brilliance, Wootton also explores the thrice-married Bergman’s eventful personal life, including a scandalous relationship with Roberto Rossellini that resulted in a European exile during the early 1950s and the birth of actress Isabella Rossellini, before a triumphant return to Hollywood in 1956’s Anastasia (1956). She earned her seventh Oscar nomination for her final film role in 1978’s Autumn Sonata.
