Ingrid Bergman in Notorious (Alfred Hitchcock, 1946)
Guy Madison on a date with Shirley Temple, 1944.
While on leave from the US Coast Guard, Madison was “discovered” and got a bit part in Temple’s film Since You Went Away. MGM received so much fan mail about Guy Madison that they built him up in the press (including sending him out on dates with Shirley Temple) and starred him - after he got out of the service - in his next movie Till The End of Time with Dorothy Maguire.
Unfortunately, I don’t know the name of the blond cutie talking to them.
Bibi Andersson and Liv Ullmann in Persona (Ingmar Bergman, 1966)
Ullmann plays actress Elisabeth Vogler who had a nervous breakdown while on stage and has stopped speaking. Andersson plays her nurse Alma as they stay on an island as part of Ullmann’s recovery. Over the course of the stay, although only Alma speaks, their personalities begin to merge.
The plot isn’t the point, really, but the framework for an enigmatic, searching, startling and ultimately powerful work of art.
