Swedish actress Ingrid Bergman may be best known for films like Casablanca (1942) and the Hitchcock movies Spellbound (1945) and Notorious (1946) — or maybe for being the mother of Isabella Rossellini! But Bergman (like her daughter) also made a fair number of fabulous frock flicks, mostly Victorian and Edwardian, but always showcasing her dedication to craft and luminous vitality.
