On the set of “Stromboli” with Ingrid Bergman and Roberto Rossellini (1950)

While filming 1950’s Stromboli, the Casablanca beauty Ingrid Bergman fell for married director Roberto Rossellini, whom she left her own husband and daughter for. The affair scandalized the nation, leading Bergman to being blacklisted in Hollywood – and even denounced on the Senate floor as a “powerful influence for evil.” Here are some of the photos of Ingrid Bergman and Roberto Rosselini from that famous film, sometimes clearly attracting the curiosity of the local villagers. These photos were shot mainly by Gordon Parks for LIFE magazine (unless stated otherwise).
