H A P P Y 100th B I R T H D A Y  Ingrid Bergman

August 29, 1915 — August 29, 1982

I have no regrets. I wouldn’t have lived my life the way I did if I was going to worry about what people were going to say.

She had an extraordinary quality of purity and nobility and a definite star personality that is very rare.
— David O. Selznick

Do you know what I especially love about you, Ingrid, my dear? I can sum it up as your naturalness. The camera loves your beauty, your acting, and your individuality. A star must have individuality. It makes you a great star. A great star.
— George Cukor

HAPPY 100TH BIRTHDAY, INGRID BERGMAN (29th August 1915 - 29th August 1982)

‘I’ve never sought success in order to get fame and money; it’s the talent and the passion that count in success.’ - Ingrid Bergman

‘Women liked her because they saw that matter-of-factness about her. She did not wear high heels. She would say: ‘It hurts my back, why would I want to wear it?’’ - Isabella Rossellini

‘There are only seven movie stars in the world whose name alone will induce American bankers to lend money for movie productions, and the only woman on the list is Ingrid Bergman.’ - Cary Grant

Happy 100th Birthday and Rest In Peace, Ingrid Bergman

“She was so good on camera because she had a completely rooted quality. She was completely at ease.She never seized up while acting. Her concentration was complete. She was in her element.”  - Stanley Donen, director

“I think my life has been wonderful. I have done what I felt like. I was given courage and I was given adventure and that has carried me along. And then also a sense of humor and a little bit of common sense. It has been a very rich life.” -  Ingrid Bergman

“Ingrid Bergman made an enormous impression on me. I couldn’t imagine where that kind of acting talent came from.” - Princess Grace

“I only feel secure when I’m playing the part of another person. I even like to be mistaken for other people. In Rome, recently, a strange man came up to me in a shop and said, ‘Excuse me, but you remind me of someone.’ I said to myself, ‘Oh, there it goes again,’ but I asked him, ‘Who?’, ‘Grace Kelly’, he said. I’m sure other actresses would have bridled at that, but I couldn’t have been more delighted - because she is so beautiful.” - Ingrid Bergman {x}

In memory of Ingrid Bergman ♥ (29 August 1915 – 29 August 1982)

“She always moved with wonderful grace and self control. She spoke her lines beautifully and her radiant beauty struck me the first time I saw her. She appreciated compliments, accepted them shyly but they never altered the three totally original characteristics of her work. Truth, naturalness and fantasy. I created Intermezzo for her, but I was not responsible for its success. Ingrid herself made it successful through her perfomance. The truth is, nobody discovered her. Nobody launched her. She discovered herself.”  – Gustaf Molander

“She has a combination of rare beauty, freshness, vitality and ability that is as uncommon as a century plant in bloom.”  – Wanda Hale

“You see that she’s kind of a pure soul, that she’s naive and good. But she always said the truth, and she had a kind of direct wisdom. And she was very funny. You know, I don’t think my mother cared so much that people thought she was courageous or not courageous, modern or not modern, independent or dependent. I think she would like to be remembered only as a good actress. And to know that through her work and that of my father,  generation after generation will be encouraged to make films.”  – Isabella Rossellini

In 1915, William Beebe drew this, calling it “tetrapteryx”. He had previously been doing experiments on bird embryos and saw that early in their development, they often had large leg feathers. He hypthesized that early in their evolution, birds went through a “four-winged“ stage with with wings on both their arms and legs. Opposing ornithologist Gerhard Heilman criticised Beebe’s ideas, and others followed his ideas. The consensus soon became that the idea of “tetrapteryx” was ridiculous.

In 2000, Microraptor was formally described. (image courtesy of Emily Willoughby ewilloughby)
