Coming Attractions...The Best of Bergman

Ingrid Bergman and Anthony Quinn in The Visit
Coming in 2014...Mark Griffin will introduce three films featuring the incandescent Ingrid Bergman, including her rarely screened 1964 drama The Visit, co-starring Anthony Quinn (who also co-produced the film).  Winner of three Academy Awards, Ingrid Bergman (1915-1982) captivated audiences with her unforgettable performances in IntermezzoCasablancaGaslight and Notorious.  During her long and celebrated career, the actress worked with many great directors including Michael Curtiz, Alfred Hitchcock, George Cukor and Vincente Minnelli.  In The Visit, Bergman plays an extraordinarily wealthy woman who returns to her poverty-stricken hometown hellbent on revenge.  Directed by Bernhard Wicki, The Visit was out of circulation for many years but it has now become the "in" film among Bergman buffs.  The forthcoming screenings will include special guests and take place at your favorite Boston-based revival house.  Stay tuned for further details on this exciting three part tribute.
