Carol Burnett to be honoured with award from Jimmy Stewart museum in Pennsylvania

INDIANA, Pa. - Carol Burnett is being honoured by a Pennsylvania museum dedicated to actor Jimmy Stewart.

The Indiana Gazette (http://bit.ly/1uM4xEm ) reports the actress and comedian will receive the museum's Harvey Award at an Oct. 3 fundraiser for the James M. Steward Museum Foundation.

The foundation and museum are based in Stewart's Pennsylvania hometown: Indiana, about 45 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

Past winners include Janet Leigh, Shirley Jones, Ernest Borgnine and Rich Little. The award is named for the 1950 film in which Stewart befriends an invisible rabbit. It is typically given to someone with connections to Stewart.

Burnett has called Stewart her "idol." He appeared on the final episode of "The Carol Burnett Show" as a surprise guest, ending its 11-year run in 1978. He died in 1997.
