Almanac – August 29

1915 – Ingrid Bergman born.  Swedish born American actress who starred in a variety of European and American films. She won three Academy Awards, two Emmy Awards, and the Tony Award for Best Actress and is ranked as the fourth greatest female star of American cinema of all time by the American Film Institute. She is probably best remembered for her roles as Ilsa Lund in Casablanca (1942), and as Alicia Huberman in Notorious (1946), an Alfred Hitchcock thriller.


1920 – Charlie Parker born. American jazz saxophonist and composer. A highly influential jazz soloist and a leading figure in the development of bebop, he introduced revolutionary harmonic ideas, including rapid passing chords, new variants of altered chords, and chord substitutions.
Parker was an icon for the hipster subculture and later the Beat Generation, personifying the jazz musician as an uncompromising artist and intellectual, rather than an entertainer.



1982 – Ingrid Bergman died. (see above)
