The Magic Lantern

Ingmar Bergman, Author Penguin Books $14.95 (336p) ISBN 978-0-14-010469-1
Director Bergman's memoir explores his relations with his parents and older brother, his introduction to the theater, his successes and failures and his decision to stop making films. ``A reader's disappointment over the paltry detail and characterization of Bergman's wives, children and lovers--and of his films--is somewhat dissipated by the inclusion of numerous anecdotes about Chaplin, Garbo, Karajan, Olivier and especially Ingrid Bergman,'' reported PW.
