Agatha Christie's Murder On the Orient Express was a film full of stars. Ingrid Bergman co-starred with greats: Sean Connery, Vanessa Redgrave, Lauren Bacall, Albert Finny, Jacqueline Bisset, and Anthony Perkins (among others).
For Ingrid's role as, Greta Ohlsson, she won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. Here is a clip of Ingrid's acceptance speech, giving homage to her friend Valenina Cortese.

She is outstanding, really digging deep, speaking Swedish and not wearing any makeup to look young and beautiful (yet she still does look that way!!).
Here is a clip from the film.
- An avid Ingrid Bergman fan, I am a student of her life and work as well as film, filmmaking and Classic Film in general. I have my M.F.A. in TV/Film Production from USC School of Cinematic Arts and have been making a living in the business they call show. Feel free to follow me on Twitter @alexis_morrell
