Edgar Bergen sings a check for $18.97 payable to Alta-Dena Dairy.
Check signed: "Edgar Bergen", 8¼x3. No place, 1965 December 8. Check No. 8227, drawn on Bergen's "Special Account" at the Bank of America, Sunset-Wetherly Branch, Hollywood, payable to Alta-Dena Dairy for $18.97. Stamped endorsement on verso.

In 1965, Bergen appeared in one feature film, One Way Wahini, and he guest starred on an episode of TV's Burke's Law. Ventriloquist Edgar Bergen (1903-1978) and his dummy Charlie McCarthy were first heard over Rudy Vallee's radio program on December 17, 1936 and were an immediate hit. Bergen was promptly signed, and Bergen and McCarthy starred on NBC and later on CBS from 1937-1956. Charlie McCarthy was a sarcastic boy who managed to get into trouble, which always worried Edgar Bergen. McCarthyisms included: "Ambition is just an excuse for those without the good sense to be lazy" and "Hard work never killed anyone, but why take the chance?" Bergen was the father of Emmy Award-winning actress Candice Bergen. Two items.
