Editorial Reviews

This fabulous five-DVD collection brings you the very best of George Burns and Gracie Allen from their classic ‘50s TV sitcom, The Burns & Allen Show. Say g’night, Gracie!

You'll love the daffy antics of Gracie and the endless patience of straight man George as they get mixed up in one hilarious situation after another.

And you'll also see Hollywood Couples: George Burns and Gracie Allen - an affectionate look at this dynamic duo, featuring rare clips and photos.

It's all here in The Burns and Allen Collection. Say g'night, Gracie!

Disc One FIRST SHOW - In this rare, very first episode of the Burns and Allen Show from 1950, George explains the premise of their TV series and the dynamics of his rapport with Gracie. Veteran character actor Henry Jones guest stars as an encyclopedia salesman.

GRACIE'S TAX RETURN - The tax assessor pays the Burns household a visit and becomes confused by Gracie's loopy logic. Guest star is Bob Sweeney, who would soon co-star in Our Miss Brooks.

Disc Two SPEECH WRITER - George keeps getting interrupted while he's trying to write an important speech and Gracie tries to enroll some rambunctious children in a private school.

GRACIE'S CHECKING ACCOUNT - A frustrated bank officer drops by the house to try and straighten out Gracie's wacky bookkeeping methods and Gracie gets a traffic ticket.

Disc Three GRACIE'S WEDDING PLANS - Gracie agrees to throw a wedding for the daughter of a friend - right in the Burns home - and George has to contend with a fussy French caterer.

TEEN VISIT - The Burns' banker lets his teenage daughter stay with George and Gracie for the weekend. Burns and Allen get a chance to show off some fancy footwork at the end.

Disc Four SWAMI - Gracie decides to divorce George after misinterpreting a fortune teller's prediction. Walter Woolf King, who played the villain in the Marx Brothers classic A Night At The Opera, is Gracie's attorney.

BEVERLY HILLS SOCIETY - Gracie misuses the rent money for The Beverly Hills Uplift Society, so the ladies hold their meeting in the Burns home.

Disc Five HOLLYWOOD COUPLES: GEORGE BURNS AND GRACIE ALLEN - A fascinating documentary focusing on the lives of George and Gracie onscreen and especially off. Rare clips and photos tell their story, including a look at Burns and Allen's lives before they met, as well as Burns' phenomenally successful solo career after his beloved Gracie's untimely death.
