Looking for a story about a ventriloquist that ISN’T creepy? Keep looking! Actress Candice  Bergen (Murphy Brown) is the daughter of famous ventriloquist Edgar Bergen. Edgar and his dummy, Charlie McCarthy were huge stars in the 30’s and 40’s.  According to family friend Orson Welles, “For the first three years of her life, Candice had breakfast with Edgar and Charlie McCarthy, and thought Charlie was her brother. Charlie would sit there and talk to her: ‘Drink your milk.’ Her father never spoke directly to her. ‘Til one day she opened a closet she wasn’t supposed to open and found five of her brothers hanging there.”
