MORE INFO ON CAROL BURNETT: The entertainment world has enjoyed a five-decade love affair with comedienne/singer Carol Burnett. A peerless sketch performer and delightful, self-effacing personality who rightfully succeeded as the carrot-topped "Queen of Television Comedy," it was Burnett's traumatic childhood that set the stage for her comedy.

Carol's rags-to-riches story started out in San Antonio, Texas, on April 26, 1933, where she was born to Jodie and Louise Burnett, both of whom suffered from acute alcoholism. As a child, she was left in the care of a beloved grandmother, who shuttled the two of them off to Hollywood, California, where they lived in a boarding house and shared a great passion for the Golden Age of movies. The plaintive, loose-limbed, highly sensitive Carol survived her wallflower insecurities by grabbing attention as a cut-up at Hollywood High School. A natural talent, she attended the University of California and switched majors from journalism to theater. Scouting out comedy parts on TV and in the theater, she first had them rolling in the aisles in the mid-1950s performing a lovelorn novelty song called "I Made a Fool of Myself Over John Foster Dulles" (then Secretary of State) in a nightclub act. This led to night-time variety show appearances with and and where the career ball really started rolling.

Carol's first big TV breaks came at age 22 and 23 as a foil to a ventriloquist's dummy on the already-established (1950) in 1955, and as 's gawky girlfriend on the short-lived sitcom (1956). She also developed an affinity for game shows and appeared as a regular on one of TV earliest, (1947) in 1958. While TV would bring Carol fans by the millions, it was that set her on the road to stardom. She began as the woebegone Princess Winnifred in the 1959 musical "Once Upon a Mattress" which earned her first Tony nomination. [She would later appear in three TV adaptations - (1964) (TV), (1972) (TV) and (2005) (TV).] This, in turn, led to the first of an armful of Emmy s as a repertoire player on the popular variety series (1958) in 1959. Burnett invented a number of scene-stealing characters during this time, most notably her charwoman character. With the phenomenal household success of the Moore show, she moved up quickly from second banana to headliner and appeared in a 1962 Emmy-winning special (1962) (TV) co-starring close friend . She earned the Outer Critics Circle for the short-lived musical "Fade Out, Fade In" (1964); and made her official film opposite (1964) star and in the lightweight comedy (1963).

Not surprisingly, fellow redhead , who had been Carol's treasured idol growing up, subsequently became a friend and mentor to the rising funny girl. Hilarious as a guest star on (1962), Carol appeared as a painfully shy (natch) wallflower type who suddenly blooms in jaw-dropping fashion. Ms. Ball was so convinced of Carol's talent that she offered Carol her own Desilu-produced sitcom, but Burnett had her heart set on fronting a variety show. With her own team of second bananas, including character crony , handsome foil , and lookalike "kid sister" type , the (1967) became an instant sensation, and earned 22 Emmy s during its 11-year run. It allowed Carol to fire off her wide range of comedy and musical ammunition--whether running amok in broad sketch comedy, parodying movie icons such as , , or , or singing/gushing alongside favorite vocalists , , , , and . She managed to bring in huge stars not known at all for slapstick comedy, including and even then-Governor while providing a platform for such up-and-coming talent as and In between, Carol branched out with supporting turns in the films (1972), (1974) and 's (1978).

Her program, whose last episode aired in March of 1978, was the last truly successful major network variety show to date. Carol took on new challenges to display her unseen dramatic mettle, and accomplished this amazingly in TV-movie showcases. She earned an Emmy nomination for her gripping portrayal of anti-Vietnam War activist Peg Mullen in (1979) (TV), and convincingly played a woman coming to terms with her alcoholism in (1982) (TV). Neither character bore any traces of the usual Burnett comedy shtick. Though she proved she could contain herself for films, Carol was never able to acquire crossover success into movies, despite trouper work in (1981), (1982) (as the hammy villainess Miss Hannigan), and (1992). The last two roles had been created onstage by 's .

Carol would return from time to time to the stage and concert forums with productions of "Plaza Suite," "I Do! I Do," "Follies," "Company" and "Putting It Together." A second Tony nomination came for her comedy work in "Moon Over Buffalo" in 1995. Carol has made frequent appearances on her own favorite TV shows too, such as (1961) (along with , Carol was considered one of the show's best players) and the daytime soaper (1970).

During the early 1990s, Carol attempted a TV of sorts, with a couple of new variety formats in (1990) and (1991), but neither could recreate the magic of the original. She has appeared sporadically on various shows such as (1980), (1994), (1992) (for which she won an Emmy) and (2004). Befitting such a classy clown, she has received a multitude of s over time, including the 2003 Kennedy Center Honors and the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2005. She was inducted into the Television Hall of Fame in 1985.

Her personal life has been valiant--tears in between the laughs. Married three times, her second union with jazz-musician-turned-variety-show-producer produced three daughters. Eldest girl 'Carrie Hamilton,' an actress and former teen substance abuser, tragically died of lung and brain cancer at age 38. Shortly before Carrie's death, mother and daughter managed to write a play together entitled "Hollywood Arms," based on Carol's 1986 memoir "One More Time." The show subsequently made it to .

Today, at age 70 plus, Carol has been seen less frequently but continues to make appearances and sign off with her signature ear tug (acknowledging her late grandmother), reminding us all, between the wisecracks and the songs, how glad and lucky we all are to still have some of "this time together."

MORE INFO ON AILEEN QUINN: Born June 28, 1971, Aileen was introduced to show business by her mother Helenann who was doing theater when Aileen was growing up. Aileen begged to audition too, and she began to get parts near her home of Yardley, Pennsylvania.

Aileen's first movie part was one line in _Paternity_ (cv), starring Burt Reynolds. At the time Aileen was picked for the movie, she was on Broadway with Allison Smith playing the Swing Orphan in 'Annie'. The Swing essentially understudied various Orphan roles in the show and knew all their parts and had to go on stage at a moment's notice if one of the actors was sick and couldn't perform. Or, if the Orphan acting as Annie's understudy had to go on as Annie, Aileen went on as the understudy to the understudy.

She was chosen to be Annie in the film version from 8,000 girls. The announcement was made in January 1981 by director 'John Huston' (cv), who introduced Aileen as his Annie to the world on nationwide TV. _Annie 1982_ (cv) was filmed from April to September 1981. Aileen starred in one more movie after Annie, - _The Frog Prince_ (cv) - when she was about 14, but it was never released in theaters, only on video. Meanwhile, she continued to do theater. A family member was running the theater at Fort Bragg, North Carolina on the Army base there, so Aileen was invited to star in several productions there. In 1985 she was Dorothy in 'The Wizard Of Oz', and in 1986 she was Annie once again, except this time it was the stage musical. Opposite her as Daddy Warbucks was Harve Presnell, who had played the role for years on Broadway and in one of the National Tours. When Aileen was a senior in high school, she starred in 'A Day In Hollywood, A Night In The Ukraine' in Bristol, Pennsylvania.

Aileen graduated in the spring of 1989 and did one year at Pitzer College in southern California before transferring to Drew University nearer home in New Jersey. (B.A. with honors in Spanish from Drew University) Like numerous child stars before her, Aileen chose not to study show biz in college; instead she took a few years away from it and studied languages, especially Japanese and Spanish. She spent six months with a family in Chile as part of an exchange program in college and considered it one of her life's most rewarding experiences.

After graduation from Drew, Aileen once again took to the stage and in 1994 she played Bette in 'Oliver!' at the famous Paper Mill Playhouse in Millburn, New Jersey. And at the end of 1995 she went out on tour in 'Fiddler On The Roof'. In 1997 Aileen was in two off-Broadway shows, 'Dreamstuff' and 'Yiddle With a Fiddle'. In 1998 she was on Broadway in 'Peter Pan', but in early 1999, Aileen left the show and moved to Los Angeles for a couple of years.

In addition to the "Annie" movie soundtrack album--which went platinum in the summer of 1982--Aileen recorded an album of her own. This album is extremely rare; there are probably fewer than a dozen copies of the LP in existence in the hands of Orphan Annie collectors, and even fewer cassettes.
