Richard III starring LAURENCE OLIVIER had opened in the UK in 1955 but was just released three months earlier in 1956 in the USA. Anastasia starring INGRID BERGMAN opened later in 1956. Both title roles received 1957 Oscar nominations with Bergman winning the 1957 Academy Award. LAURENCE OLIVIER (1907-1989) was nominated for Academy Awards for Best Actor in Wuthering Heights (1939), Henry V (1946), Richard III (1956), The Entertainer (1960), Sleuth (1972) and Boys from Brazil (1978), for Best Supporting Actor in Marathon Man (1976) and for Best Director in Hamlet, for which he won the 1948 Academy Award for Best Actor.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).Covers slightly soiled and worn.
