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>

Burns and Allen make their film debut in the amusing Lambchops
24 June 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This being the film debut of the comedy team of George Burns and Gracie Allen, it's fascinating to watch a vaudeville act that had been formed just a few years earlier provide their pretty amusing banter that they use here to fill seven minutes. Among the many amusements from them: George-"What man in the army has the biggest hat?" Gracie-"The one with the biggest head." or George-"What sings with four legs?" Gracie-"Two canaries." George, tired of having Gracie steal his punchlines then asks and answers, "What gives more milk than a cow? Two cows!" They also go into a song and dance routine with more amusing patter before they realize they have a few more time to fill. If you're familiar with Burns and Allen, you can probably guess what happens. So on that note, I recommend Lambchops for anyone interested in these vintage shorts.
