Burns & Allen

Burns & Allen are still America's favorite husband and wife comedy team, but did you know Gracie Allen made several movies without George and that George was not only the straight man but a comedy writer and television producer as well? George tried a variety of acts in vaudeville before he scored in a duo with Gracie. They went on to star in radio, films and television.
