The documentary will focus on the work-driven Capricon’s 80-plus years in show business (a career that’s still kicking) and will be packed with clips from some of her most iconic roles, including her beloved roles on “The Golden Girls” and “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” her hosting gig on “Saturday Night Live” and her hilarious Super Bowl commercial.
