HAPPY BIRTHDAY, INGRID BERGMAN
↳ b. Aug 29 1915 d. Aug 29 1982
Do you know what I especially love about you, Ingrid, my dear? I can sum it up as your naturalness. The camera loves your beauty, your acting, and your individuality. A star must have individuality. It makes you a star. A great star.
- George Cukor
She had an extraordinary quality of purity and nobility and a definite star personality that is very rare.
- David O. Selznick
She has a combination of rare beauty, freshness, and vitality that is as uncommon as a century plant in bloom.
- Wanda Hale
I thought it was so like Mama to die on her birthday. She was very orderly, and it was a tidy thing to do. Mom loved life so much. She never wanted to let go if it, even after she was too sick to work. She struggled, but the sickness got worse. The sickness and her battle against it continuously weakened her, but she wouldn’t give in. She took what pleasure she could even in those last months, weeks, days.
- Isabella Rossellini
HAPPY 98TH BIRTHDAY AND RIP, INGRID BERGMAN
August 29 1915 - August 29 1982
“I have always thought I will go on acting and acting and acting because I belong to these people of the theatre and the movies and the make-believe world we create… After all, they always need an old witch in some production or other, especially around Christmas time. So at the end of my life, I’ll be ready and there.”
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1941)
