"Four Remarkable Women" is the subtitle for the Sept. 20 broadcast of "60 Minutes," the hour-long CBS news program.
Four of Mike Wallace's favorite interviews will be rebroadcast during the hour, including chats with former Broadway stars Barbra Streisand and Shirley MacLaine. Tina Turner and Candice Bergen are also featured in the program.
Streisand's 1991 interview featured the Tony and Academy Award-winning actress discussing her relationships with her mother and stepfather as well as her "controlling nature." MacLaine speaks about her belief in reincarnation and explains that she had an affair with Charlemagne 1,200 years ago. Rock legend Tina Turner discusses her career and remarks that success lasts longer in Europe than America, which is one reason she may never live in the U.S. permanently. The program concludes with a chat with Candice Bergen who admits she had to compete with her father's wooden dummy, Charlie McCarthy, for her dad's attention.
On Broadway, Barbra Streisand appeared in I Can Get it For You Wholesale and Funny Girl, earning Tony Award nominations for both performances. She was later awarded a Special Tony Award (1971). Shirley MacLaine appeared in the Broadway productions of Me and Juliet and The Pajama Game and also headlined several solo concerts on The Great White Way. Tina Turner has no Broadway show credits; Candice Bergen starred in the replacement cast of Hurlyburly.
