her role was fantastic an d another wicked nice touch to a near perfect movie! I think she was fantastic, in more ways than one and her acting wa s certainly well done.
Yes, less crudely, she has stunning physical attributes. but altogether, her appearance in this movie that just couldn't do without her! Too, too perfect for her role period.....

I once was privallidged enough to meet Ingrid, and remember hearing (after reading her autobiography) that she was offended by the 'director' of MGM, when he (in cellebrating the success of the film) raised a toast to Hitler, and did the Nazi salute.

Ingrid dates her birthday to Nov 1937; as do varioues official sources, hence her being incarcerated in camp as a small child. The other (later) dates were used by studios and PR people.
