Summary:
Ingrid Bergman was one of the most glamorous stars in Hollywood--until an international scandal threatened to end her career. She had starred in several now-classic films, and her co-stars included such Hollywood icons as Humphrey Bogart, Cary Grant, and Gregory Peck. Already a movie star in her native Sweden, Bergman became an instant sensation in Hollywood and the number-one box-office star in the world. But the most dramatic event in her life took place off the screen, when she made a film in Italy and began a passionate romance with her director, Roberto Rossellini. The scandal that followed left her exiled from America, ostracized by Hollywood, vilified in the press, denounced by clergy, censured in the U.S. Senate--and separated from her young daughter. This new biography draws on extensive conversations with Bergman and many others to describe what happened from Bergman's point of view.--From publisher description.
