The husband and wife comedy team of George Burns and Gracie Allen developed their popular routine over more than three decades of stage, radio, film and television. They were one of the best-known couples in Hollywood history. Burns left most of the laughs to Allen, who had a way of engaging in dialogues of "illogical logic" that left her verbal opponents dazed and confused and her audiences in stitches. Burns, entertainment's most nimble straight man, balanced Allen's scatterbrained antics. Their chemistry made The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show an instant hit when it moved from radio to television in 1950. The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show ran for an amazing 239 episodes on the CBS television network and garnered 12 emmy nominations. The show had several regulars, including Bea Benaderet as neighbor "Blanche Morton." Although, three different actors played Blanche's husband "Harry," Benaderet remained cast as George and Gracie's understanding television neighbor throughout the show's eight-year run. Burns ended every episode with the line "Say goodnight, Gracie" to which Allen simply replied, "Good night, Gracie." We hope you will enjoy this two-disc DVD selection of the top ten Burns and Allen Shows of all time.
