And now, for something slightly off-topic! September 16, 2009

d'aww betty ily so much

Hi, Betty!

Oh deer, that is not Ingrid Bergman.

D:

Happy birthday, Betty! I could switch into fangirl mode right now and write about how I hope Lauren Bacall had a fantastic 85th birthday today, how she made me really like old movies, and just how awesome she is overall.

But this is an Ingy blog and we must stay on topic!

So I’ll briefly write about Murder on the Orient Express. That way I can talk about Ingrid and Betty at the same time. Yeeh!

Both Ingrid and Lauren starred in Sidney Lumet’s 1974 film based on the Agatha Christie novel. (So did a bunch of other big names.) They were the reason I wanted to watch the movie. I figured it would be worth it just to see two of my favorite actresses in one place. But for some reason I couldn’t sit through it. Perhaps I just need more patience; the film moves at a slow, relaxed pace. Maybe it’s because there wasn’t a lot of dialogue between teh Bergman and Bacall, and that’s one thing I was really hoping to see. (I think they said about two sentences to each other in the entire film.) Or am I just a weirdo with bad taste? ;_; After all, many people seem to really enjoy Murder on the Orient Express.

What about you, did you enjoy the film? To those of you who have read the book, is the book interesting?

(Side note: Go Ingy for winning an Oscar in this movie. :D)

ingy~~~

Dear Ingrid,

Happy 94th birthday! Incredible doesn’t even begin to describe your life. You were a woman of amazing talent, beauty, and personality.

I love how no matter what the situation was, you would find somewhere, some circumstance under which to act. Even when you were just a youngster, too little to act on the stage or screen, you enjoyed acting for your father’s home movies. When the public didn’t want your films in America, you found refuge by acting in Europe. Even when you were ill and weak towards the end of your life, you still pulled through and courageously completed Autumn Sonata and A Woman Called Golda. You weren’t just a “star,” into Hollywood for the glamour. You wanted the real deal.

No actor or actress has influenced my life more than you. I’ve seen more of your work than anyone else’s. It’s sort of funny: when I first became interested in classic movies, I knew who you were but wasn’t really interested – yet.  And then I saw Notorious. Casablanca quickly followed. As I saw more of your films, you climbed higher and higher on my list of favorite actresses until your reached the number one spot. Since then, I’ve watched several of your fantastic performances. That’s not to mention that I’ve saved more pictures of you to my computer and read more books on you than any other actor or actress… ^^~

Isn’t it strange, the mystery of celebrity? I’ve never known you – sadly, you passed away before I was even born – but I still feel like we’ve met. You don’t seem fake at all, on screen or in interviews. Sometimes, if I’m in a sticky situation or simply feeling down, I wonder what you would have done to make things better. And I tell myself to work harder because you always tried so hard at everything you did. Some days, I tell myself to wear less makeup because Ingrid could wear no makeup at all and still look gorgeous. But above all, you just seem like such a sweet and fun person to be around.

Many people love you for the same reasons: for your beauty and personality, and of course all those performances, with just enough emotion. No underacting. No overacting. Just perfect.

And for that, we miss you…
