1950: Ingrid Bergman Commits Adultery

It's the kind of story that makes huge tabloid headlines: A beautiful, married film star has an affair on a movie set. But an actress today probably would not face the wrath that Ingrid Bergman did for committing adultery with director Roberto Rossellini (the affair came to light when she became pregnant). The U.S. Senate even addressed the affair, with Colorado's Edwin C. Johnson denouncing Bergman as "a powerful influence for evil." The shame drove the actress to leave Hollywood for Italy; she would not return for several years.
