Ann B. Davis,
The bulk of the filmed episodes were shot over the course of a day with two cameras. Episodes were then edited and screened for a preview audience, and audio of the crowd's reaction was recorded to give an organic reaction to each joke rather than "canned laughter." At the end of each preview screening, George and Gracie would come out and film their "Say goodnight, Gracie" closing tag scene live in front of the audience. See more »
This is the television show that broke all the molds. There was no comedienne at the time (or for that matter, any time) better than Gracie! No one could act that dumb! She was poetry to watch. As George used to say, he stood while Gracie talked! What a pair they were. If you can find it, rent the episode about the checkbook. I got dizzy just watching! We can only hope that Nick at Nite goes back further than the 60s for the real classics of TV!
