Carol Burnett - one of the finest dramatic actresses!
Carol Burnett is best known as one of America's greatest comediennes, but she has delivered some of the finest dramatic performances in such television films as "Friendly Fire," "The Tenth Month," "Life of the Party: The Story of Beatrice," "Between Friends," "Seasons of the Heart" and "Love After Death." She is simply as ingratiating in drama as she is in comedy. In "The Tenth Month" Burnett brings her innate human quality to her portrayal of an unwed mother. Many actresses could have handled this role quite capably; few of them, however, could have matched Burnett's genuinely endearing persona. She makes us care for the character and her inner conflicts, even if the script is not the most interesting. Watching her it is easy to see why she is the most honored woman in television history.
