Ingrid Bergman - Swedish Film Collection in April
Kino has announced an April 19th street date for Ingrid Bergman - Swedish Film Collection. The three-disc set features three early Bergman films in her native Sweden.
It will retail for $39.95, but is available at ClassicFlix.com for only $29.99. Bonus features are not expected and titles will not be available as singles.
Today, Ingrid Bergmans name is synonymous with Hollywood s golden age as a three-time Oscar winner and the star of such classics as Casablanca , Gaslight and Notorious. However, before she became a Hollywood legend, Bergman was the star of a series of Swedish films in the 1930s which are being rediscovered as a vital, if long-overlooked period in her singular career.
In Intermezzo, Ingrid Bergman plays Anita Hoffman, an aspiring classical pianist who falls in love with a famed but married concert violinist. Their passionate affair has deep and unanticipated consequences for them both, and for Anita, it also stirs a crisis of conscience. Intermezzo brought the actress to the attention of producer David O. Selznick, who remade it in Hollywood , again starring Bergman.
A Woman's Face (1938)
In one of the most challenging roles of her early career in Sweden, Bergman plays Anna Holm, whose bitterness over a facial disfigurement leads her to become a blackmailer. However, when one of her victims turns out to be married to a renowned plastic surgeon, Anna is given the opportunity to change her life. A Womans Face is a daring and frequently shocking psychological drama.
June Night (1940)
Her last film before moving to Hollywood , June Night features Bergman playing a small-town woman at the center of a sensational crime. When Kerstin Norback (Bergman) is shot and gravely wounded by her lover, the trial causes a public scandal, forcing her to move to Stockholm under an assumed name. There she befriends a group of women and attempts to rebuild her life. In June Night, Bergman gives a bravura performance, prompting one critic to praise that she establishes herself as an actress belonging to the world elite.
