I have been holding out to see “Selma” before posting these, but I still have not been able to find that anywhere…. alas one day I will, and shortly thereafter add my version of the poster to this collection.

The night I saw Carol Burnett โ€“ in person!

  Like many, many people, I grew up watching “The Carol Burnett Show”.
