Ingrid Bergman in Penrhyndeudraeth
Here is a nice shot from 1958 of Ingrid Bergman relaxing on location in Penrhyndeudraeth, north
, during the shooting of The Inn of the Sixth Happiness. She is with her children Roberto, Ingrid and Isabella (who would herself later go on to become a successful actress). For the movie, which was supposed to be set in Wales China, oriental children were drafted into Snowdonia from Cardiff, London and Liverpool. A replica of the Great Wall of China was even erected – though I’m assuming not in its entirety. A gold-painted Buddha that was used on set in the film is now at Portmeirion. Male lead Robert Donat died a few days after the film was completed.
