Running from 1968 to 1982, “The Dick Cavett Show” sometimes brought heady culture to the American airwaves. In this particular case, Cavett gave Americans a close up view of Ingmar Bergman, the influential Swedish director so admired by Woody Allen. (Allen once called Bergman "probably the greatest film artist, all things considered, since the invention of the motion picture camera.") Cavett's wide-ranging, 60 minute interview comes in six parts. Part 1 appears above. The remaining clips are here: Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, and Part 6. Thanks Roberta for the lead on this one.
