Today, the more than fantastic Ingrid Bergman would have been 101. Celebrations were big last year on her centennial, but I’m willing to honour her the best I can every years! Sadly, August 29 also marks the date of her 34th death anniversary
But I also one to honour her here, of course, as she is one of my “three enchanting ladies”! 🙂
So, let’s start with a top 10 of my most favourite films of hers! This list is completely subjective and these are my personal choices. That goes without saying.
However, this list can always change as I still have many Ingrid Bergman’s films to see (the day is still at its beginning!). So far, I’ve seen 17 of them (more than I would have thought actually).
Well, let’s go!
10. Murder on the Orient Express (Sidney Lumet, 1974)
A small but memorable role. She won her third and last Oscar for her performance
9. For Whom the Bell Tolls (Sam Wood, 1943)
For her brilliant performance, Ingrid received her first Oscar nomination. You can read my article about her performance here:
8. En Kvinnas Ansikte (A Woman’s Face)- (Gustaf Molander, 1938)
Because it’s so fantastic to hear her talk in her native language: Swedish!
7. Stromboli (Roberto Rossellini, 1950)
Probably my favourite Italian Neo-Realist film. You can read my review here:
6. Notorious (Alfred Hitchcock, 1946)
Ingrid, Cary Grant and Hitchcock. What more can you ask? You can read my article about the famous kiss here:
5. Casablanca (Michael Curtiz, 1942)
Her most iconic film
4. Cactus Flower (Gene Saks, 1969)
Because to see Ingrid dancing worths a million!
3. Gaslight (George Cukor, 1944)
Ingrid won her first Oscar for this film. I do think it’s her best performance.
2. The Inn of the Sixth Happiness (Mark Robson, 1958)
This film, ah! This film! I could watch it forever. It’s a real inspiration. You can read my review here:
Spellbound (Alfred Hitchcock, 1945)
Ingrid’s first Hitchcock’s film! I love it because it’s simply fascinating! She also plays my favourite female movie character. You can read my review here:
Well, that’s it! Please don’t hesitate to share your favourites with me!
Happy heavenly birthday Ingrid ❤
