  • The Carol Burnett Show has a skit parodying this movie, sort of. It's actually a frame story, with "Miss Havana" drunkenly telling the story of her lost love Eddie to anyone she can catch at gunpoint (including the cop when they spoof the "He used to be a bigshot" scene). The entire plotline is quite different from The Roaring Twenties but it's clearly a direct parody of the movie's characters at the very least, with some of the parody versions actually named after the actors (Jean is now "Priscilla" and the George equivalent is Bogie).

How well does it match the trope?
