In the minds of today's audiences, George Burns was a solo act. But in the history of show business, he will long be remembered for his work with Gracie Allen. Few performers have enjoyed so much popular and critical acclaim. Together they enjoyed phenomenal success in vaudeville, radio, television, and film. Although they were celebrities, the two performers enjoyed a life remarkably free of scandal. After the death of Allen in 1964, Burns made commercials, a music video, and an exercise video. He wrote books and won numerous awards, and his nightclub and convention appearances did not stop until shortly before his death.

Through a thoughtful biography and detailed entries, this book serves as a comprehensive reference to the careers of Burns and Allen together and individually. The biography summarizes their rise as vaudeville performers, their work in a range of media, and Burns' continued achievements after Allen's death. Sections of the book cover their work on the stage, on radio, on television, and in films. Each section provides detailed entries for their performances, including cast and credit information, plot synoposes, and review excerpts. Appendices list their awards, personal appearances, and archives; and an extensive annotated bibliography cites and discusses sources of additional information.

Very pricey. As much as I enjoy reading and learning about George Burns and Gracie Allen, I was some what disappointed with this book. Yes, there are many details, but, some of them are incorrect, such as Gracie's birthday. On one page it says July 26, which is correct, but on another page it notes July 27 (incorrect). Also, it says Gracie's "right" arm was badly burned as a young child, but was in fact her left arm. Gracie's eye color, one blue and one green. The book notes, blue and brown. The biggest disappointment I found to be was the print. The writing is extremely tiny. If you're looking for a book full of statistics, then you may enjoy it. If you prefer to read more about the relationship (personal and professional) between these two lovable people a more suitable book to read is Gracie, A Love Story.

It's pricey, yes, but if you're a real fanatic for George and Gracie, you must own this book. It's the single most important and valuable source for detailed information on their careers that exists, and far too few people know about it. The research here is staggering, including synopses of ALL the B&A radio shows (the vast majority of which have not been in circulation), records of every guest appearance they ever made on TV or radio, continuing through George's solo career.

In addition to these detailed listings, the book includes a thorough biography of the team that itself offers a ton of fascinating information you won't find anywhere else. This is the first source I ever encountered that got Gracie's birth date correct--few people know this, but she was actually *older* than George, not 10 years younger as she always claimed (amazing, considering that age jokes about George were a part of their act going back to the 1940s!)

These bio-bibliography books are a mixed bag. You never really know what you're going to get, as there's no established formula for books of this type. But I will say I wouldn't know a quarter of what I do about their careers were it not for the information in this book. I can't recommend it highly enough.
