Synopsis by Cecilia Cygnar

Ingrid Bergman was both one of Hollywood's most sought after stars and a controversial public figure. Her bright and acclaimed acting career came to a halt after a very public scandal caused her to leave the country and live in Europe for a time. Resilient and strong, Ingrid Bergman did not let her public humiliation end her career or prevent her life from moving on. She came back to America determined to put her past behind her and succeeded with her performance in Anastasia, for which she won a Best Actress Oscar. This documentary on her life, narrated by Sir John Gielgud, includes clips from 25 of her films and interviews with friends and people who worked with her, including Liv Ullmann, Angela Lansbury, Anthony Quinn, and Jose Ferrer. Also included are rare early screen tests, home movies from the 1940s, and footage from her press conference after she returned from Europe.
