Storyline

George and Gracie enter an elegant drawing room, looking everywhere for something. Turns out, they're looking for the audience, and when George spots the camera, they start in on their patter. Gracie wants to convince George that she's smart, not dizzy - it's an uphill struggle of which she's blissfully unaware. Midway through, they break into song: "Do You Believe Me?" It includes a little bit of hoofing as the chatting continues. They end on a story Gracie whispers into George's ear. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

Burns and Allen received $1,700 for starring in this film. "I'd never heard of $1,700 in my life, especially for nine minutes' work," George Burns wrote in his 1955 autobiography. With dollar signs in his eyes, Burns actively sought out more film work for the comedy duo. See more »

A cute little Vitaphone short
1 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A cute little short, Gracie shines, George doesn't quite have the straight man perfected but he'll get there.

I wonder how they did this act in vaudeville with no microphones or amplification.

The most disorienting element is seeing them both so young, 10 years before their radio stardom and 20-30 before their TV show.

Someone should have told George to tilt his fedora away from the camera so we could see his face better.

I'm impressed with the sound. 1929 is still the stone age for movie sound but audio superiority of Vitaphone's sound on disc system really shows here.
