Listen, You Dummy!  Edgar Bergen whispers into the ear of dummy Charlie McCarthy in this 1970 file photo as they were preparing for a nightclub act in Reno, Nevada. 


Bergen died in his sleep Saturday at the age of 75, in Las Vegas.  He had announced his planned retirement from show business less than two weeks before.
