Inger Unrehearsed: A Candid Pictures Gallery
Page 1

Although the majority of our image galleries contain primarily stills and studio/publicity portraits, this new gallery contains candid, "snapshot"-type images of Inger taken at various times in her life. Some images show her at award ceremonies, while others capture a more informal Inger, simply away from a film set or stage. They are from a variety of sources; some are simple photos taken by friends such as publicist Ben Irwin and actor/writer George Furth while others were taken by celebrity photographers of the day. Candid photos of Inger at awards shows and the like are readily found, but snapshots of her at small, intimate gatherings or with her guard down are much more rare. I've included these informal pictures because they show a different perspective of Inger, one seen by her friends and family: not the actress but Inger the human being, a "real" person with whom we can readily identify.

Inger chats with Heidi, her aunt Karin's housekeeper, during her vacation to Sweden in 1958. In a recent e-mail, Inger's half brother Richard recalled long lines of locals lining up to welcome & greet their hometown "Hollywood star."

A collection of images of Inger and then Swedish Consul General Per Anger, taken by a magazine photographer named Stone in October 1963. During World War II, using his authority as a Swedish diplomat, Anger worked tirelessly in rescuing Hungarian Jews from arrest and deportation by the Nazis. After the war, Anger spearheaded efforts to determine the fate of his friend Raoul Wallenberg. Anger ultimately received Sweden's highest civilian award for his humanitarian efforts and passed away in Stockholm, in 2002. The original negatives of this set of photos recently sold on Ebay for $100 dollars.



Upon completion of A Guide for the Married Man, the production company held a special preview of the movie aboard the crusie ship S.S. Canberra, bound from Vancouver to San Francisco. Here is a photo of Inger attending the preview party.
