    Default Weird Picture ID help

    This picture has had me baffled for a while,

    My wife got me this framed picture some years back at a yard sale. It's a real photograph, someone punched holes in it for a 3 ring binder at one time, the left edge is real deteriorated. Rifle of course is a U.S. Model 1903 Springfield.

    Someone mentioned to me that maybe it's a WW2 French Resistance fighter, but the 1903 rifle really doesn't fit for that in my opinion, I've never seen a picture in the history books of any French Resistance with a 1903, unless left over from WW1?

    The picture looks "staged" propaganda? movie?

    Text on picture says 1601-56AD

    any ideas of who, what, when?

    Could it be a Screen Shot for a Movie,or a hopefull Actresses Portfolio Photo,maybe ?
    The number 56 AD could be the year.
    Just a thought,

    It looks like it might be Ingrid Bergman, though it's not scene from the movie (for whom the bells toll), so if it is her it's a publicity shot.
    Regards,

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    I can't believe that only Jerry recognized Ingrid Bergman! Lordy, do I feel old now....(and yes-it's definitely Her....)

    Thanks for the replies, faster than I thought, I should have posted this long ago.

    I posted this on Facebook, and one other forum tonight.

    Someone suggested the actress was Märta Torén, and that the movie was "Sword in the Desert"

    Check out the movie poster? she has a 1903 in it? maybe?

    Cool! I'm not feeling so ancient now! It IS Märta Torén after all! That girl could pass for Ingrid's twin! Good work!

    Thanks, I guess that confirms it, mystery solved, I wonder how a real photo of her ended up at a yard sale?
    Thanks again for the help.

    Since this photo is from a movie, and not a real watime photo.....

    MODS please delete this thread if you want.
