What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
Since becoming a vaudeville team in 1922, George Burns and Gracie Allen have made audiences laugh in movies, radio and television. The real-life married couple established their personalities in radio with The Burns and Allen Show and brought their comedy to television in 1950. For nine years on CBS, every show opened with Burns, puffing his trademark cigar, regaling the audience with stories of their vaudeville days... and the latest antics of his beloved wife, Gracie. Often entangled with their neighbours, the Mortons, Gracie's zany wit was always the cause (and solution) to their misadventures of domestic bliss.

As always Gracie - naive to the point of autistic in her literalism - gets the laughs, but George is indispensable: their timing together is marvellous and the series as a whole remains an all-time classic - ahead of 'I Love Lucy' in my view. I saw reruns of a dozen or so episodes in the States over the summer and I'd forgotten just how slick they were. So buy the dvd by all means, but do so with your eyes open.
