My Weekend Crush
With all the craziness in the news and looniness of the zeitgeist, I felt like going back in time for this weekend’s crush. It’s hard to find a more timeless, more elegant, more flat-out beautiful actress than Ingrid Bergman. Looking back, it’s strange to think that a woman remembered for such classics as “Casablanca,” “Gaslight” and “Anastasia” was embroiled in her own scandal back in the day. When the married Ingrid had an affair with the also married Italian director Roberto Rossellini, she was denounced on the U.S. Senate floor as a “horrible example of womanhood and a powerful influence for evil.” The couple later married and one of the results of their “evil” was Isabella Rossellini. Now that’s what I call good genes. Happy weekend, all.
