HodgePodgin' and Mishmashin'

A place for all the things I love: Favorite Old Hollywood Stars: Ingrid Bergman, Deborah Kerr, Doris Day, Jimmy Stewart, Cary Grant, Gregory Peck, as well as a hodgepodge of everything retro/vintage, classic movies, favorite actors and actresses, quotes, music, and pretty much anything and everything else.

Deborah at home - Pacific Palisades (X) Several of her mother’s Crown Derby cups stand on the mantel and then, quite in contrast with the rest of the room, a fat china pig, covered with painted flowers rests beside the fireplace. If you ask Deborah why Melanie brought the pig into the parlor she smiles and says: “She didn’t. I put it there. I just happen to like it.”

Several of her mother’s Crown Derby cups stand on the mantel and then, quite in contrast with the rest of the room, a fat china pig, covered with painted flowers rests beside the fireplace. If you ask Deborah why Melanie brought the pig into the parlor she smiles and says:
“She didn’t. I put it there. I just happen to like it.”

The attributes of charm, according to Deborah (X)    “Kindness is found in people who not only show gratitude for the important things which are done for them, but also remember to say ‘thank you’ for the little, unimportant things. This should be especially true in families. Often people know each other so well, that they forget the kind formality of thanking one another for such things as passing the bread at dinner.” (Deborah Kerr)

Larry KING: Why did she like acting so much?

Pia LINDSTROM: I don’t think she liked herself in her real life. […] You know, she was an orphan. […] And so she really was very lonely. […] And I believe she was one of those people who liked to put on the clothes and the makeup of another…

Birthday Girl ❤️ | Ingrid Bergman was different from most Hollywood superstars. She did not indulge in tantrums or berate with directors. If she had a question about a script, she asked it without fuss. She could be counted on to be letter perfect with her lines before she faced the camera. And during the intervals between scenes, her relaxing smile and hearty laugh were as unaffected as her low-heeled shoes, long walking stride and minimal makeup. She was always fiercely independent. She had no other choice – her mother died when she was only three-years-old and her father passed away when she was 12. Growing up in Stockholm, Sweden, she became interested in acting at an early age. She attended the Royal Dramatic Theater School and appeared in several Swedish films before Hollywood came knocking. In 1936, she starred in the Swedish film, “Intermezzo”, and was asked to appear in the Hollywood remake. The 1939 film was a huge success and catapulted her into the spotlight. Audiences loved her on screen and they especially loved her wholesome image. #ingridbergman#happybirthday#bornonthisday#birthdaygirl#oldhollywood#screenlegend#actress#vintage#portrait#1940s#classichollywood by cherie_moviemagic http://ift.tt/1pnv6R0
