Who is this witch?

This ugly crone is a famous actress who delights in playing an occasional prank. On Halloween she went to her Hollywood studio, equipped herself with a wrinkled face, a wart on her nose and a broom, and swirled away. A few minutes later she burst into the home of Directory Victor Fleming, circled him on her broom and left, trailing a shrill, cackling laugh. A little later, she terrified Director Alfred Hitchcock (himself a master at terrifying people) with the same act. The she whirled back to her studio, shouting “Happy Halloween” and threw a party. After lengthy consideration, she finally allowed LIFE to print this unflattering picture. Her name: Ingrid Bergman.
