A Classic Spoof of a Classic

Turner Classic Movies aired "Gone With the Wind" this afternoon as part of its annual "31 Days of Oscar."

This year is the 70th anniversary of the debut of that classic film, but I haven't been able to watch it in the last 30 years without thinking of the classic parody from the "Carol Burnett Show" from the 1970s. Dinah Shore was a guest on the show, but most of the credit for the spoof really goes to the talents of Carol Burnett and Harvey Korman, who died last year.

I've included a portion of the skit with this post. If you're even remotely familiar with the movie, you'll recognize what's being spoofed.

Watch it and enjoy it.
