George Burns and Gracie Allen had one of the most enduring
acts in the history of show business. They were headliners
in vaudeville in the 1920s, on radio in the 1930s and 1940s,
and for almost a full decade on television in the 1950s.

The format of the TV Burns and Allen show was simple enough.
It was set in the Burn's home, and cast George in the dual
role of on-screen narrator of the proceedings and straight
man for Gracie's scatterbrained but delightful involvements
with various people and situations.

Gracie's cohort in many of her predicaments was neighbor
Blanche Morton, whose long-suffering accountant husband
Harry was as infuriated by the girls' escapades as George
was tolerant. George was unflappable. He would simply turn to
the camera, cigar in hand, and philosophize to the audience.
