Remembering De Düva (The Dove)

The best Ingmar Bergman parody, ever.

It takes nothing away from Ingmar Bergman's greatness as a 20th-century artist to remember with pleasure an extremely funny 15-minute parody of his films, titled De Düva (The Dove). Made in 1968 (and nominated for an Academy Award), De Düva is notable, among other things, for marking the film debut of Madeline Kahn. It was directed by and starred George Coe, who later would surface briefly as a founding member of the Saturday Night Live troupe.
