Ingmar Bergman Visits The Dick Cavett Show, 1971

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.
