Carol Burnett Lampoons Wyler's Heiress (1949)

I should have known that "The Carol Burnett Show" made a spoof of William Wyler's drama The Heiress (1949). If it's a classic film then TCBS has made fun of it.

It's called "The Lady Heir." Here it is on Youtube.

  1. Thank you! Some of my earliest memories of classic movies are the spoofs from "The Carol Burnett Show." I especially loved "Mildred Fierce."

  2. Love Carol Burnett. When I was a kid, she made being an old movie buff cool.

  3. Classicfilmboy, I think I've seen the Mildred Fierce one. If I recall, it was in black and white. Carol Burnett wore an outrageous pompadour, black and white power suit with zig-zag pattern and the shoulder pads of a linebacker. The costuming by itself was hilarious!

    Jacqueline, I had no idea that the Carol Burnett Show did parodies of old films until someone mentioned the famous Gone With The Wind parody. I've been a fan ever since.
