Correcting the Record
Yesterday, in writing about Edgar Bergen's final appearance in The Muppet Movie, I mentioned that he had no dialogue, but that there was just a noteworthy closeup of him and Charlie McCarthy. However, reader Douglass Abramson corrected me that indeed they did have a bit of dialogue. The close-up that Jim Henson wanted to give them was so pronounced that that was what stood out in my mind. And thoughtfully, he sent along a link to the video. So, it's only right and proper that I correct things here --

Thanks for the share of that lovely moment. Charlie and Bergen's warm final chuckle actually caused me to choke up a bit. Funny how quickly an unexpected wave of nostalgia can wash over you.

Thanks for your note. Indeed, the pages of this site are loaded with videos of Edgar Bergen, so for thems interested, a search should be able to find them.
