  • Description

    A crowd of nearly 100 people tried to burst into the ante-room of the Palais de Justice, Paris, Jan 21, as Visnews filmed the meeting of Ingrid Bergman and her former husband film producer Roberto Rossellini in France's highest civil court.

    Rossellini has taken out a law suit seeking custody of the three children of their marriage (by proxy in 1950) Robertino (aged nine), and the six yrs old twins Isotta and Isabella, now living with their mother and the man she married at Caxton Hall, London in December 1958, Swedish impresario Lars Schmidt.

    Four lawyers are fighting the case for Rossellini, but Ingrid Bergman (latest triumph the role of Gladys Aylward in the film biography 'Inn of the Sixth Happiness') counters with four lawyers and the headlined statement "No matter where Mr. Rossellini tries to obtain possession of my children, no matter which court or what country, I shall fight him".

    While similar actions are going on in Italy, the French judge will announce his decision Jan 24. Rossellini's lawyers announced as a decision preview that he is to have 'access to the children while he is in France'.
