but I don’t want to go to bed….
Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy, Los Angeles, California, USA, 1978
by Mary Ellen Mark
"I worked photographing Candice Bergen on a Lina Wertmuller film and was assigned by Life to do her at home. Her father, Edgar Bergen (below), whom I had photographed before, was there. I asked him if I could photograph him with his dummy, Charlie McCarthy. His son then brought out the trunk, It was a very moving moment." A few years later Life ran this picture as part of Edgar Bergen’s obituary." - Mary Ellen Mark
