Thanks for explaining. Your reference to prudishness made me think of the content of his films, not the real life incident that you mention. You may be right. What did Ingrid Bergman doto alienate the US public? Taking up with Roberto Rossellini? As far as I know, she was and is beloved by the US public...

Which brings us back to the fifties and popular culture... Once in a while I like to look at old popular magazine collections (Time, Life, etc.) from that era in the library. A lot of the material that was published seems oddly surreal. Meanwhile our hardboiled heroes kept pounding the mean streets!
