Happy Birthday, Oprah Winfrey

As she turns 57 this week, it's hard to imagine a time when Oprah wasn't a household name. But, her rise to international super-stardom didn't begin until late in 1986, the year she sat down with Mike Wallace.

Since this is the "farewell season" of Oprah Winfrey's syndicated talk show, it's a perfect time for "60 Minutes Overtime" to look back at Oprah shortly after her show went nationwide.

When we watched this 1986 interview, we got a real kick out of this confident and candid young woman, on the cusp of conquering the world. Enjoy!
