The comic book writer Kelly Sue DeConnick really uniquely tapped into Carol Danvers – not just her toughness and her power, but also her vulnerability.

Carol Thatcher

My mother was prone to calling me by her secretaries’ names and working through each of them until she got to Carol.

I put the copy of ‘A Christmas Carol’ that my grandfather had first read to me 60 years ago on my desk, and I began to write. The result, for better or for worse, is the ‘Christmas Spirits.’ I plan to read it to my grandson.

I grew up in the age of variety shows. ‘Flip Wilson,’ ‘Carol Burnett,’ ‘Donny and Marie,’ and ‘Sonny and Cher’ – I never missed an episode. These shows had it all: singing, dancing, and sketch comedy. One minute, they’re ice-skating with pyrotechnics, the next they’re doing a scene on a gigantic set. I just couldn’t get enough.

Wendy Liebman

I think there have always been funny women, from Carol Burnett to Joan Rivers. When the audience sees a woman, they innately know she’s worked twice as hard to get there, she’s had to prove that she can be the leader, first, and then be funny on top of it. She has to emit a confidence that she’s in control.

Vicki Lawrence

People would get Carol Burnett and Vicki Lawrence all mushed together in their brains, and, bless their hearts, it would come out Carol Lawrence.

Most of the cast and crew on ‘Mama’s Family’ have been together since the ‘Carol Burnett’ days, so we work really well together. It’s like I’m being paid to pretend I’m in show business.

What would be a show that I would rescue? If I could bring anything back, it would be ‘The Carol Burnett Show’. Tim Conway is just… I just watched him so many times do stuff over and over. He’s just so amazing.

I started ‘Carol’ as I almost always do, by looking at films from the time, and they were less – they actually felt less relevant to me in terms of their bigness, although we do have some big ’50s-type moments in ‘Carol.’

Tom Shales

Making music on TV used to be as common as commercials. In the ’60s and ’70s, prime time was stuffed with variety shows headlined by such major and treasured talents as Carol Burnett, Red Skelton, the Smothers Brothers and Richard Pryor, who had a very brief comedy-variety hour on NBC that was censored literally to death.

Todd Haynes

Todd Haynes

You’ll see in ‘Carol’ a lot of shots shot through windows, glass and awnings, with interruptions between where we are and where our object is. To me, I hope that that conjures the whole act of looking as a predicament, as something that is never easy and never completely attainable.

Todd Haynes

Aspects of guilt or handwringing that one might expect in a film set in the ’50s about women who discover their love for other women – a lot of these things are not in ‘Carol.’

Todd Haynes

With ‘Carol,’ I was just really looking at and thinking about the love story as a genre, not the domestic melodrama.

‘Carol’ takes place at a time the country was crawling out of the shadows of the war years, feeling the new vulnerabilities of the Cold War and conflicts within the union.

‘Mildred’ was the first film I shot on Super 16 with Ed Lachman, and we decided to continue doing so for ‘Carol.’

Todd Haynes

I felt ‘Brokeback Mountain’ re-imbued the love story with an authentic and unquestionable series of obstacles that these men faced. I think that’s certainly true for ‘Carol’ as well.

Todd Haynes

Todd Haynes

‘Carol’ takes place in the really early ’50s, before Eisenhower has taken office. It’s based on a Patricia Highsmith novel, her second and most autobiographical book and the only one outside of the crime milieu.

Tituss Burgess

Carol Kane is just as warm as you would think she is, and she is so smart and really a living legend and has so much to offer.
