"A Star Is Burns" is the eighteenth episode of The Simpsons' sixth season.
When it was announced that Springfield was holding a film festival and townspeople were invited to enter their own movies, Smithers suggested that Burns make a movie about his life story and enter it into the festival in order to improve his public image: "People see you as something of an ogre ... maybe this film festival could help us. A film biography might let them get to know the real you." Burns liked the idea, and wanted Steven Spielberg to direct. Spielberg being unavailable, Burns told Smithers to "get me his non-union Mexican equivalent!" who turned out to be Señor Spielbergo.
