When Fred Clark landed the role of Harry Morton, the writers decided to give the character a voracious appetite. Clark's Harry was always munching on food, talking about food and hiding it in light fixtures, the fireplace and other odd locations to ensure his wife wouldn't prevent him from eating. See more »
There is something which has baffled me for years...why didn't this get into the syndication game from the start? We might never know for sure. But I am emphatically sure of is that THE GEORGE BURNS AND GRACIE ALLEN SHOW was and still is: the Best Comedy of All Time!
Yes, and it is all about Gracie. George Burns was a genius to impart the most wonderfully funny lines to Gracie. Gracie brought the most wonderful rendition of the "Dumb Dora" characterization to its zenith.
Her delivery of the most convoluted lines and the daffiest situations will never be equaled. She never broke character saying the most over-the-top dialogues. Having watched each of the almost 300 episodes several times and have come away with the most delightful laughter, I feel healthier.
If I get to reach old age, I will know that it was Gracie's character that has unequivocally been my fountain-of-youth medicine.
Now that the shows are everywhere online, I seldom go to my practically comprehensive DVD collection of the matchless classics. It is almost a daily obsession for me to get a dosage of this remarkable program.
Publicly, I want to acknowledge just how wonderful this program has become...and I want to thank the memories of George Burns and Gracie Allen for bringing so much delightful laughter and happiness to my life.
