George Burns | Gracie Allen

George Burns and Gracie Allen, taken around the time of their wonderful television series (1950 - 1958). They were SO funny! at the end of each show, George would say "Say good-night, Gracie" and Gracie would say "Good-night Gracie".

George Burns and Gracie Allen met and became an act in vaudeville. Gracie played the "dumb" one but she was anything but dumb in real life. Her comedic timing was impeccable. George was the straight man. George always said that Gracie made the act, Gracie said that George made it. What a team, on stage and in real life.

Gracie died in 1964 and George never married again, always missing Gracie.
