FAIRFAX, VA - On April 20, 2004, Harvey Korman and Tim Conway conducted an interview at the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in Los Angeles. They talked for 90 minutes about their legendary antics on The Carol Burnett Show, but the interview has rarely been seen by the general public...until now. This emotional and revealing interview will now be included - in its entirety - as part of the bonus features for Time Life's upcoming DVD release, The Carol Burnett Show - The Ultimate Collection.
In addition to the 90-minute session with Tim Conway, Harvey Korman also did a separate 90-minute solo interview at the Museum of TV and Radio, and that too will be included in The Ultimate Collection, which will now boast a staggering 20-plus hours of Bonus Features. Check out a sneak peek of the fantastic interview right here:
Also announced by Time Life are details for two additional pieces of bonus material for upcoming The Carol Burnett Show DVD set:
The UCLA Library Special Collection was the source of Carol's guest book from Season 10, and this priceless momento has been turned into a virtual tour through the season, with highlights of performances from Carol's guests, including Betty White, Dinah Shore, Jim Nabors, Steve Lawence and Eydie Gorme, among others.
"One More Time" is an exclusive 20-page memory book with photos from the show, summaries of classic moments, and anecdotes about Carol from guest stars and friends of Carol, from Carl Reiner and Betty White, to Jane Lynch and Amy Poehler.
All 50 episodes in The Ultimate Collection were hand-picked by Carol Burnett and include the most acclaimed and beloved episodes from the show's legendary 11-year run. Highlights include:
