Where Is It?
10 December 2014 | by (Brooklyn, New York) – See all my reviews

Ingmar directed this film, in an eagerly anticipated American debut. I remember it in bits and pieces, but it was superb in every way. I do remember Mary Ann Mobley in an intense scene of hysteria and crying. (I believe she was a mistress). I cannot believe that this one-time masterwork by one of the great directors of all time has vanished. Where is it? I do not recall any other Bergman production created directly for American audiences. Certainly, ANY of his works, even the lesser-received ones, are part of a pantheon of important works by a master. If we can find old material from the same era and reproduce it, however non-perfect, we should be able to study this one. Let's find it.
