Intermezzo (Classic Film Pick)

Intermezzo Ingrid Bergman (“Casablanca”) is ravishing in her first English speaking film as Anita Hoffman, a piano teacher to the young daughter of acclaimed concert violinist Holger Brandt (Leslie Howard). The married violinist becomes so smitten with Anita that he abandons his wife and invites the much younger ingenue to accompany him on his next musical tour in Italy. Cinematographer Gregg Toland (”Citizen Kane”) was nominated for an Academy Award for his fantastic black and white work under director Gregory Ratoff’s film. A remake of the similarly titled Swedish film,“Intermezzo” is a classic tale of romance from 1939. It is also a great glimpse Ingrid Bergman’s highly developed talents at just 24-years-old.
Not Rated. 70 mins. (Four Stars) (B+)
