Always a Texan
Joan Crawford's famous imitator, Carol Burnett (her classic "Mildred Fierce" takeoff is on YouTube) was also born in San Antonio. You can see her family home, now a community center, at 2000 West Commerce Street. It's not open to the public for tours but you'll get a sense of Burnett's old school Texas origins. “Once you’re a Texan, it doesn’t matter if you left when you were five minutes old, you’re a Texan,” Burnett has said.
