Ingrid Bergman and Gregory Peck were both married at the time of production — Bergman to Petter Aron Lindström and Peck to Greta Kukkonen— but they had a brief affair during filming.Their secret relationship became public knowledge when Peck confessed to Brad Darrach of People Magazine in an interview five years after Bergman’s death: “All I can say is that I had a real love for her (Bergman), and I think that’s where I ought to stop…. I was young. She was young. We were involved for weeks in close and intense work.”

Spellbound (1945) Dir. Alfred Hitchcock

I realize now how very short life is, because I’ve got to be considered to be in the home stretch. But I won’t waste time on recriminations and regrets. And the same goes for my shortcomings and my own failures.

Eldred Gregory Peck (April 5th, 1916 - June 12th, 2003)
