Swedish actress, director, and screenwriter Ingrid Thulin perches on a chair in this blonde on black promo image from 1956. She's best known for appearing in several Ingmar Bergman movies, including 1957's Smultronstället, also known as Wild Strawberries. Interestingly, Thulin guested on a U.S. spy series called Foreign Intrigue in 1954 and 1955, and the next year co-starred in the spy thriller Foreign Intrigue with Robert Mitchum, a movie that was unrelated to the television show despite its identical title. We guess the casting agent must have been like, “So, Ingrid, can you be intriguing? Just kidding. I see on your credits that you've been there, done that, so you're hired.”

She was born Ann-Mari Birgitta Bengtsdotter Petré, but that’s a mouthful so she went by simply Gio Petré. Under that name she appeared in nearly thirty films between 1955 and 1974, mostly of the sexploitation variety, but also serious films such as Ingmar Bergman’s classic Smultronstället, aka Wild Strawberries. This shot is from the late 1960s.
