The Bergman's on Barbra

Alan and Marilyn Bergman were profiled on CBS Sunday Morning by Nancy Giles on March 7.

I'll try to recap the Barbra moments for you here.

-"A Child is Born" is playing in the background against a montage of childhood photos of N.G.-

N.G.- "When I was growing up I saw the names Alan and Marilyn Bergman on some of my favorite records many times sung by the great Barbra Streisand".


-"Way We Were" is playing in the background with scenes from the movie.-

Oscar number two was for their classic hit, The Way We Were.
M.B.- "If we didn't hear crying or sniffles when they sneak previewed the picture, we missed the boat".

N.G.- "Did you hear sniffles"?

M.B.- "We saw the Kleenex come out and we knew it was O.K. And then we she reached up and brushed the lock of hair it was kind of an iconic moment."

--N.G.-The Way We Were is only one of the hits they have written for their friend Barbra Streisand."--

M.B.- "When we hear her sing something that was written for the first time, we hear it, there's a layer there that she will bring to it that we never knew was there."

--They also wrote this one for the movie Yentl. The score, written with their frequent collaborator Michel Legrand, earned them their third Oscar. --
