Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter
This program presents the biography of Candice Bergen. Born into an acting family, it seemed quite natural that she would follow her father Edgar Bergen into a life in the entertainment business. But the younger Bergen has become much more than an actress. While she did achieve success in films and for her memorable role on Murphy Brown, Candice Bergen is also well known for her political activities, her photojournalism, and as a talk show host. Archival film clips and photographs trace Bergen's varied career. Interviews with family, friends, and colleagues give insight into her private life, including her marriage to director Louis Malle.
