To celebrate Ingrid Bergman's birthday Wednesday, Turner Classic Movies (TCM) is showing a marathon of Bergman's films.Born Aug. 29, 1915, this Swedish beauty starred with just about every leading man during Hollywood's heyday: Humphrey Bogart, Leslie Howard, Charles Boyer, Gregory Peck and Cary Grant.

She died on her birthday in 1982, after performing as Israeli prime minister Golda Meir in “A Woman Called Golda” in a television film. She received a posthumous Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Special for that performance.

Bergman could pick a role as well as Katharine Hepburn and Meryl Streep, for she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role seven times and received three — “Gaslight” (1944), “Anastasia” (1956) and “Murder on the Orient Express” (1975).

Here's Wednesday's TCM movie schedule: “Adam Had Four Sons” at 6 a.m.; “Rage in Heaven” at 7:45 a.m.; “Saratoga Trunk” at 9:30 a.m.; “Under Capricorn” at noon; “Stromboli” at 2 p.m.; “Europa '51” at 4 p.m.; “Gaslight” at 6 p.m.; “Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde” at 8 p.m.; “Casablanca” at 10 p.m.; “Joan of Arc” at midnight; “Elena and Her Men” at 2:30 a.m.; and “Autumn Sonata” at 4:15 a.m.

Can you name the film in which Bergman created quite the scandal by leaving her real-life husband, Dr. Petter Lindstrom, for Italian director Roberto Rossellini? The answer is “Stromboli” (1950).
