Marilyn Bergman: She Was Half of an Oscar-Winning Songwriting Duo

From a New York Times obit by Anita Gates headlined “Marilyn Bergman, Half of an Oscar-Winning Songwriting Duo, Dies at 93”:

Marilyn Bergman, who with her husband, Alan Bergman, gave the world memorable lyrics about “misty watercolor memories” and “the windmills of your mind” and won three Academy Awards, died at her home in Los Angeles….

The Bergmans’ lyrics, set to melodies by composers like Marvin Hamlisch and Michel Legrand, were not everywhere, but it sometimes seemed that way. For many years their words were also heard every week over the opening credits to hit television shows like “Maude,” “Good Times” and “Alice.”
