Now that I've seen Smiles of a Summer Night for the first time six months after her death, I would agree she was a remarkable actress. I've never seen "The Rose Tattoo" so I don't know if Dahlbreck gave a better performance than Anna Magnani. On the other hand, I would still think the Best Actress of 1955 was Uma Das Gupta in "Pather Panchali."
