Ingrid: Ingrid Bergman, a Personal Biography

Charlotte Chandler, Author . Simon & Schuster $26 (334p) ISBN 978-0-7432-9421-8

The author of many Hollywood biographies, Chandler (Hello, I Must Be Going: Groucho Marx ) offers a straightforward account of one of the more intriguing Golden Age stars. Bergman died young of cancer on her 67th birthday in 1982. Her husbands, lovers, children, and the directors and actors with whom she worked, have been generous in granting interviews, and while there's not much new or exciting—aside from the well-known scandal Bergman caused when she deserted her dentist husband (Petter Lindstrom) for Italian director Roberto Rossellini (father of her twin daughters Isabella and Isotta)—there's a lot of warm reminiscences . Chandler's book will be nicely timed with Turner Classic Movies, which has made March Bergman month. 40 b&w photographs not seen by PW . (Mar.)
