Rossellini Does It Again, Dumps Ingrid

1957. Letterpress newspaper headline, 59.7 x 41.9cm. Major tears, creases, surface loss, old folds.

Roberto Rossellini and Ingrid Bergman started dating in 1949 and made several films together, including Stromboli (1950); Europe ’51 (1952); and Journey to Italy (1954). Their five year relationship was considered to be scandalous, and it led to Bergman being denounced by the Catholic Church and the US Senate (Senator Edwin C. Johnson condemning her as “a powerful influence for evil.”) Ref: The Guardian, 30 August 2015.
