  Ingmar Bergman

Ingmar Bergman, the man who gave the world Smiles of a Summer Night, Wild Strawberries, The Virgin Spring, The Seventh Seal, Persona, Scenes from a Marriage and Fanny and Alexander, among 50 or so extraordinary films has died at 89. The announcement was made by the Ingmar Bergman Foundation. Mr. Bergman died at his home on the island of Faro, off Sweden's Baltic coast.

While Bergman will justly be remembered for his wide range of films, he also was involved in many theatrical productions, several of them put on at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. These included Maria Stuart, Madame de Sade and The Winter's Tale. He also directed BAM productions of O'Neill's Long Day's Journey into Night as well as Ibsen's A Doll's House and Ghosts.

He also was involved with opera; his production of The Magic Flute was filmed. And his film for television After the Rehearsal,had a theatrical release in the U.S.

Bergman won Best Foreign Film Academy Awards for The Virgin Spring, Through a Glass Darkly and Fanny and Alexander.

Not one to shy away from marriage, he tied the knot five times. He had at least nine children from his various marriages and romantic attachments.
