"A Star is Burns" 6182F31 Original Airdate: 3/5/95
Springfield plays host to a film festival in which various townspeople display
their original work. Barney presents "Pukahontas," a haunting meditation
on his alcoholism; Apu directs "Bright Lights, Beef Jerky," the
tale of a lonely man working the loneliest shift in a small-town Kwik-E-Mart.
Two other important entries are Mr. Burns' autobiographical "A Burns
for All Seasons" and Hans Moleman's "Man Getting Hit by Football."
Despite receiving bribes from Mr. Burns, the judges choose to honor "Pukahontas"
as the festival's best film. Luckily for Moleman, his film is remade as "Football
in the Groin," a star vehicle for George C. Scott, and wins an Oscar
for Best Picture.
