Ingrid Bergman addresses an envelope to Mrs. Lorna Butler.
Autograph Envelope, unsigned, 6¼x5. British stamp affixed, postmarked London, December 8, 1965. Addressed by Bergman to: "Mrs Lorna Butler/8A Courtenay Drive/Emmer Green/Reading Berk". In the year she addressed this envelope, Bergman was starring in the play, A Month in the Country, in London. The actress, who had won a Tony Award in 1947 for her performance in Joan of Lorraine on Broadway, would return to the London stage in 1971 (Captain Brasshound's Conversion), 1973 (The Constant Wife, which also was staged in the U.S.) and 1978 (Waters of the Moon). Swedish-born actress Ingrid Bergman (1915-1982) was nominated for seven Academy Awards, winning three: Best Actress in 1944 (Gaslight) and 1956 (Anastasia) and Best Supporting Actress in 1974 (Murder on the Orient Express). In 1950, she had accepted Roberto Rossellini's offer of the lead role in Stromboli. During the production, the actress and director fell in love and she became pregnant with his child while she was still married to her first husband, Swedish doctor Peter Lindstrom. Although she married Rossellini shortly after divorcing Lindstrom, the damage had been done. Stromboli was banned in many markets and boycotted in others and the actress found herself and her work shunned by audiences. It was not until 1956, when she made Anastasia, that she made a successful comeback. Among her other notable films are Intermezzo (1936), Casablanca (1942), For Whom the Bell Tolls (1943; Best Actress Oscar nomination), The Bells of St. Mary's (1945; Best Actress Oscar nomination), Spellbound (1945), Joan of Arc (1948; Best Actress Oscar nomination), The Inn of the Sixth Happiness (1958), The Yellow Rolls-Royce (1965) and Autumn Sonata (1978; Best Actress Oscar nomination). Lightly creased and soiled, stained at upper margin. Worn at lower corners, torn open at upper margin and at flap. Verso is shaded and stained (no show through).
