Bergen, Edgar (1903 – 78)
American star of stage, screen and radio. Gifted ventriloquist and father of actress Candace Bergen. Creator of the inimitable dummy Charlie McCarthy (who was pretty darn smart).
SIG – Vintage signature display. Consists of small sheet of paper on which the ventriloquist has penned Edgar Bergen and Charlie and drawn a doodle of Charlie avec tophat. Professionally matted in siena – tone board along with an early litho – print color image of Bergen with Charlie McCarthy.
A trip down memory lane.
