Carol Burnett – In Her Own Words

“This being Hollywood, they wanted to open it up and make it this huge musical extravaganza, and we went out on the street itself and danced and sang and ran up and down fire escapes, and there was even an organ grinder with a monkey. That had nothing to do with the fact that we’re going to be on Easy Street. We found that half of a locket that belonged to Annie’s parents, and then suddenly, the plot went out of the window. It was total overkill. Bernadette and Tim and I were like, ‘Well, we just have to go with it.'”

“I guess they looked at it and realized that it didn’t work, but we already knew that. So, about a month later, I got a call from the film’s producer, Ray Stark, and he said, ‘We’re going to reshoot the Easy Street number with just the three of you in the orphanage.’ That was terrific news and the way it should have been in the first place. It was so much better with just the three villains.”

“I very much enjoyed doing ‘Law & Order,’ playing a killer – that was fun, and they had a family feel around the set, so it was a happy show to do even though the subject matter was quite the opposite.”

Birthday Present for Betty White

Our dear Betty White died before she could reach her 100th birthday in just a couple of weeks. Social media is going viral with #BettyWhite and #BettyWhitechallenge. Someone came up with the wonderful idea of donating $5 to an animal shelter in Betty’s name on January 17, her birthday. If you love all that Betty gave the entertainment world and the animal world, please consider donating.
