One Last Footnote On Bergman


At the risk of belaboring the subject of Ingrid Bergman, here is an image I came across that just has to be shared. It was taken in 1949, and purports to show Roberto Rossellini and the actress leaving Stromboli to ask Bergman’s husband for a divorce. Their troubled expressions would suggest it’s a true enough caption, and the weather that day can only have increased their misery. In light of the scandal swirling around them, I doubt this was anything other than an accurate rendering of what these two were going through. Put this under the heading of Photos Don't Lie.

On another topic, I note that several sites are taking a holiday break. For what it’s worth, Greenbriar will be open as usual tomorrow, as there is a very special birthday that’s shared with Thanksgiving this year, and we want to be here to celebrate (can anybody guess whose it is?).

Most likely: Boris Karloff

Dark horse: Harpo Marx

Least likely: Grease 2 star Maxwell Caulfield

You've gotta love IMDb's On This Day in History search!

Or one on Bruce Vilanch, James Toback, Michael Gough, or Susan Anspach.

A more likely possibility might be Ruth Etting. Still, meaning no disrespect to her or Mr. Karloff (or, for that matter, any of the above), my guess is Harpo Marx.

Forry Ackerman's birthday is tomorrow (24th). The party was last weekend, for convenience sake. Hope to see something on Uncle Ack on Greenbriar tomorrow?
