Happy birthday, Ingrid Bergman!

I didn't know that she was born and passed away on the same date. I didn't know that she was a serial fall-in-lover. I didn't know about her secret love with Robert Capa and a bold telegram to Roberto Rosselini. The actrice Ingrid Bergman would have celebrated her 100 years on the 29th August 2015. A moving documentary on her life was on-aired on French/Germain TV channel Arte .
