1949. Roberto Rossellini. Screenplay by Rossellini, Sergio Amidei, et al. With Ingrid Bergman, Mario Vitale. Bergman, impressed by Rome Open City and Paisan, wrote to Rossellini that if ever he needed a Swedish actress who spoke English well, she was ready to work with him. Rossellini responded with Stromboli, about an Eastern European refugee who quits a postwar displaced persons camp by marrying an unrefined fisherman from the titular small volcanic island, and soon falls into despair. 105 min.
