Let's hear it for Naima Wifstrand
She had quite a career http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0927711/bio and was simply wonderful in this movie (quite a scene stealer) and also especially good in "Smiles of a Summer Night"
Some memorable dialogue - made me smile - from The Magician:
Granny Vogler: Why the tears, little lizard?
Sanna: Are you a witch?
Granny Vogler: Maybe I am.
Sanna: I'm so scared of everything tonight. And you're so old and ugly.
Granny Vogler: So will you be, little lizard, when you reach two hundred.
Sanna: Are you that old?
Granny Vogler: Oh yes, I am.
