Ulla Jacobsson (1929-1982)

  1. Elana Eden, The Story of Ruth, 1959.    Director Henry Koster and producer Samuel  G Engel saw (allegedly) about 300 actressess for the Bible’s Ruth, testing just 29… including Ulla Jacobsson (Ingmar Bergman’s Swedish  discovery), Diane Baker, Myrna Fahey, Susan Kohner, Tina Louise and Millie Perkins. But Engel bowed to studio pressure about the Israeli Eden (ex-Cooper), one of George Stevens’ final five possibles for The Diary of Anne Frank, 1958, won by…Perkins.
  2. Britt Ekland, The Double Man, 1966.    Hollywood director Franklin J Schaffner first asked the Ingmar Bergman find to play Gina opposite Yul Brynner in his espionage drama. Britt was younger, prettier. Not better.
