Love Letters View Comments Related Shows “I have a framed handwritten letter that I got from my idol Jimmy Stewart,” Burnett told us. “Years ago, when he was honored at the Kennedy Center Honors, I was on the program. I sang ‘You’d Be So Easy to Love’ to him, which was the first song he ever sang in a movie.” [Stewart famously crooned the song to Eleanor Powell in the 1936 musical comedy Born to Dance.] Burnett added, “We were friends at that point, and he wrote me the sweetest thank-you note. I treasure it because I just love that man. It’s still in a frame on my wall at home.” Comedy legend Carol Burnett, who recently stepped into Broadway’s Love Letters opposite Brian Dennehy, says she’s a good letter writer. “I used to write a lot, especially when I was in college,” she told Broadway.com. But there’s one letter Burnett cherishes above all else: a thank-you note from her hero. Burnett is a lifelong admirer of Stewart, and she explained the origin of her adoration in her memoir, This Time Together. They later became friends with frequent dinner parties and social activities. Stewart even surprised Burnett on the very last episode of The Carol Burnett Show in 1978. See her priceless reaction below. Show Closed This production ended its run on Dec. 14, 2014
Published on March 2, 2017 at 10:06 pm Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse (17-13, 9-8 Atlantic Coast) hopes for an NCAA Tournament resume-boosting win when it takes on Pittsburgh (17-13, 8-9) at 4 p.m. on Sunday in the Carrier Dome. Syracuse lost, 71-65, the last time these two teams met two weeks ago in Atlanta.Here’s how The Daily Orange beat writers think the game will unfold.Connor Grossman (17-13)Bee carefulSyracuse 63, Georgia Tech 60Syracuse shouldn’t think it can waltz into its regular season finale and pry a win away from Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets are on the cusp of their first NCAA Tournament berth in seven seasons, and a win in the Carrier Dome could get GT on the right side of the bubble. But on its home court, SU’s offense will be markedly improved from the sluggish performance it showed in Atlanta earlier this month. Georgia Tech’s offensive woes will persist, and the Orange comes away with a significant win before heading to the Barclays Center for the conference tournament.Matt Schneidman (13-17)Harmless stingSyracuse 68, Georgia Tech 62AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTo spare itself at least a little sweat heading into the ACC tournament, Syracuse needs to beat Georgia Tech at home. The Orange’s visit to Atlanta got away in the second half, but don’t expect that same offensively lethargic SU team to show up on Senior Day in the Carrier Dome. The Orange secures a bye in Brooklyn, and more importantly may not even need to win a game there in order to make the Big Dance.Paul Schwedelson (18-12)Trending topicsSyracuse 65, Georgia Tech 58The 71 points Syracuse allowed to Georgia Tech on Feb. 19 were the second fewest it’s allowed in a game since Jan. 14. The Orange’s only home conference loss came against then-No. 8 Louisville. Entering the final regular season game, the trends are clear. For whatever reason, SU is a different team at home. Whether or not Saturday is Syracuse’s last game in the Carrier Dome this season — if SU plays in the NIT, it would likely host games — the Orange is good when it plays there. Comments
