Behind the Oscar
A triumphal recognition--after 6 years of selfimposed exile--was achieved by Ingrid Bergman when the Academy presented her an Oscar for Anastasia. Though in Paris doing a play, Miss Bergman responded with delight: "It is the most wished-for award by all movie artists," she said, "because it comes from your coworkers." Driven from a Hollywood that castigated her for her illicit romance with Italian director Roberto Rossellini, she was honored by her peers 6 years later.
