This Time Together

The legendary “Went With the Wind” skit; and things that would happen only to Carol – the prank with Julie Andrews that went wrong in front of the First Lady; the famous Tarzan Yell that saved her during a mugging; and the time she faked a wooden leg to get served in a famous ice cream emporium This poignant look back allows us to cry with the actress during her sorrows rejoice in her successes and finally always to laug I was watching Annie with my little one the other day and within minutes I was shaking my head How could any actress even attempt to play Miss Hannigan after Carol Burnett s performance It wasn t just that it was funny In fact it may not be a lot of people s cup of tea because it is so broad as is her style It was that Carol Burnett decided that her character was going to play this silly comedy musical as if it was a melodrama She was Joan Crawford at her long suffering martyr best It takes a lot not to be upstaged by a cute curly haired urchin an adorable furball and a bunch of overproduced Look Ma I m actin ovah heeeyah sing and dance numbers but Burnett shone I for one only had eyes for herHaving said that people looking for super candid memoirs in This Time Together might be a bit disappointed This is a collection of bits some of them funnier than others Carol tackles computers Carol is confronted by a grumpy restaurant hostess than a sincere shared insight into her unconventional upbringing marriages or behind the scenes experiences from the set of her TV shows and movies To be fair she may have already explored that territory with her first memoirs which I have not read Still overall this book is at times humorous surprising and when she talks about her daughter very emotionalPerhaps the most surprising tidbit I learned from This Time Together concerns one of my favorite comedy moments of all time and apparently voted the funniest scene on television by some association or other The Gone with the Wind Parody where Carol as a Scarlett clone makes her grand entrance on the staircase wearing the recognizable green velvet drape dress except this one comes complete with the curtain rod still inserted behind her neck and shoulders and tassles on her hat and belt All this time I thought it was just another of the brilliant ideas that made Burnett s TV variety show so memorable and uniue but lo and behold it was exclusively the brain child of fashion designer Bob Mackie And here I was thinking he was infamous merely for all those Vegas show girly outrageous 1980s Oscar get ups that Cher strutted in on the red carpet He should have gotten an Emmy for the Burnett show
