Interviewing Marilyn & Alan BergmanSeptember 1, 2011 at 11:00 pm
The latest in our series of video “oral histories” with film-music luminaries: a lengthy, genuinely in-depth interview with Oscar-winning lyricists Marilyn and Alan Bergman at their home in Beverly Hills. This was, like most of the others, for the Film Music Foundation. We delved not only into their lives and careers but into their philosophy about lyric writing, for films and otherwise. Stories about everything from In the Heat of the Night to “Windmills of Your Mind” to Yentl. A memorable afternoon.
