vaudeville (vôd´vĬl), originally a light song, derived from the drinking and love songs formerly attributed to Olivier Basselin and called Vau, or Vaux, de Vire. Similar to the English music hall, American vaudeville was a live entertainment consisting of unrelated songs, dances, acrobatic and magic acts, and humorous skits and sketches by a variety of performers and acts, each on stage for about five minutes. From humble origins in barrooms and "museums," vaudeville became the dominant attraction in American popular entertainment, playing in hundreds of theaters throughout the United States. It flourished from 1881, when Tony Pastor gave the first "big time" vaudeville show in New York City, until 1932, when its greatest center, New York's Palace Theatre, abandoned live shows and became a movie theater. Such headliners as George M. Cohan, Harry Houdini, Eva Tanguay, W. C. Fields, Fay Templeton, Will Rogers, Ed Wynn, Eddie Cantor, Jimmy Durante, Irene Franklin, Fred Allen, George Burns and Gracie Allen ...

Greetings from a former English major who invites you to brush up your Shakespeare, as we prepare to celebrate the 450th anniversary of the most famous writer...well, possibly ever. On Saturday, April 19, our "Those Were the Days" program presents an afternoon of "The Bard on the Air," with radio productions of "Much Ado About Nothing" (starring Leslie Howard and Rosalind Russell), "The Taming of the Shrew" (starring John Barrymore), and a two-part production of "Othello" starring Richard Widmark in the role of Iago—plus, there may be a surprise or two (and no debate over who wrote what). The play's the thing beginning at 1:00 pm CST on WDCB (90.9 FM in Chicagoland; everywhere). Then on Sunday, our sister show Radio's Golden Age adds a little Bard of its own as James Stewart appears in "Hamlet" (well, sort of) as part of his short-lived western series, "The Six Shooter." We'll also have an Easter-time broadcast of "The Hallmark Playhouse" and comedy with George Burns and Gracie Allen. Join us a ...

slept in until 9 this morning - so unusual for me. Came in to living room and turned on TV. Whomever was watching last night, left it on the TCM channel. A black & white movie was on and I was intrigued by a woman tap dancing. The movie is Honolulu, released in 1939 and starred Robert Young, George Burns, Gracie Allen & Eleanor Powell. Granted the images are not as clear as HD movies today but I feel it was very well done for that time. Thanks to my DirectTV, I was able to rewind it and watch from the beginning. Lots of music and dancing without vulgar innuendos and nudity. LOVED IT
Watching 1939 movie, "Honolulu" with Robert Young and Eleanor Powell. Anyone watch the oldies? George Burns and Gracie Allen are also in this film!

This is a comment version of a much longer story I often tell the kids at Habbo. I've never formally written it down. I better post it here for the day I finally write a formal version of it...

A previous example was The Wizard of Oz, when Dorothy flew her house over the rainbow, warning the world of this phenomenon." -- a short story from The Rono "The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show"

Slightly off topic, certainly self-indulgent, but part of old Hollywood nonetheless, Jim and Marion Jordan, better known as Fibber McGee and Molly, this wedded pair were quite arguably the finest comedians on the radio and endured in some form from April 16, 1935 to October 2, 1959. Jim was a master of improve, and comedic timing. Marion was similarly talented and held her own on their show which boasted some of the great radio celebrities of the time; Gale Gordon, Arthur Q. Brian, Harold Peary, Bea Bernadette, the amazingly versatile Bill Thompson, and from the late 1930's through the early 1950's, the Billy Mills Orchestra, and The Kings Men. Sadly, Marion died in the early 1960's after battling alcoholism for most of her life. After his wife passed away, Jim quietly retired and only appeared a few times afterwards to do television commercials for the long running sponsor of Fibber McGee and Molly, Johnson's Wax, and one episode of "Chico and the Man". I have a vast collection of the radio shows thanks ...

DAN'S OLD-TIME RADIO CORNER - ROMANCE (AND A BIT OF BURNS & ALLEN) The CBS radio show Romance is little-known, because in its 15-year run, CBS used it mostly as filler. It had no long-term time slot or day of the week. It would appear whenever CBS had a slot to fill. Which is sad, because it was a top-flight program, with excellent writing and great stars. In this episode, you'll hear William Conrad, John Dehner, Parley Baer, Joseph Kearns, Vic Perrin, Sam Edwards, and Virginia Gregg. And stay tune afterwards for a short but hilarious clip from George Burns and Gracie Allen. This episode of Romance was the last episode ever broadcast. It's called Uncle Fats and the Goose Step, and it aired on January 5, 1957. Listen at

Fun Fact for the Day, Tues., Oct. 1 -- "Vaudeville" (Day 6): Even serious thespians such as Sarah Bernhardt and Maurice Barrymore (great grandfather of Drew Barrymore) performed short plays in vaudeville theaters, as did Maurice's daughter, Ethel. But the comedy acts were always the biggest draws, and numerous stars paid their dues on the vaudeville circuit. Some of the most notable: Charlie Chaplin, Ed Wynn, the Marx Brothers, Danny Kaye, Jimmy Durante, Jack Benny, and Milton Berle. George Burns did, too. In fact, George went through many partners, including a singing seal, before finding Gracie Allen. But it didn't matter if you were one of the star attractions -- you still had to endure the same boardinghouse beds and food as everyone else when you were on the road. It was often said that, in some places, the bedbugs ate better than the vaudevillians. And as George Burns once (or probably more than once) said, "The only thing worse than working in vaudeville is not working in vaudeville."
I agree I love the patty duke show, my three sons and Dobie Gillis and George Burns and Gracie Allen great to see on tvland

I missed the show and will catch later. Did Bob pick George Burns & Gracie Allen?
Edith Bunker, your character is an icon of a bygone era. Your funny nasal voice reminds me a bit of Gracie Allen who was married for years and performed with husband George Burns. The portrayer Jean Stapleton was very gifted and talented. I enjoyed the 2000 interview that Donnie and Marie had with Jean Stapleton and Carroll O'Connor concerning their characters. I continue to watch your reruns and learn alot about life and people from your programs. Norman Lear who also made the Waltons brought us the golden gem of All in the Family. It was a blessing to be fans of both shows and I still am. Good entertainment is a rare commodity anymore with the many television stations we have. Jean, I know that I really didn't do you justice just know that this is a Valentine of love from a lifelong fan who you made smile, laugh, and ultimately your portrayal reached out and touched my brain cells and I learned to be a better human being. Thanks. God bless you.
Years ago, I bid on an autographed Gracie Allen picture in an online auction. Unfortunately, I typed the wrong lot number into the field and wound up with a TV Guide signed by all four major cast members of "All in the Family."

Mar 9, 1996: Comedian George Burns dies at age 100...  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  * On this day, March 9th in 1996, the legendary cigar-chomping performer George Burns dies at his home in Beverly Hills, California, just weeks after celebrating his 100th birthday. Born Nathan Birnbaum in New York City, Burns was one of 12 children. As a young child, he sang for pennies on street corners and in saloons, and at age 13, he started a dance academy with a friend. In 1922, Burns was performing the latest in a string of song-and-dance acts in Newark, New Jersey, when he teamed up with a fellow performer, Gracie Allen. Though Allen began as the straight one in their partnership, her natural comedic ability prompted Burns to rewrite their material to give her most of the punch lines. From then on, Burns played the straight man to Allen’s ditz, with hilarious results. By the time Burns and Allen married in 1926 ...
The making of Alan Sherman’s first record. Stan Cornyn : Then, as often is the case, the phone rang. Calling WBR in Burbank was Hollywood comedian George Burns, of the George Burns and Gracie Allen Shows, a radio super-couple. Burns had met Mike Maitland at Jim Conkling’s stag farewell dinner months earlier. Now, Burns asked WBR’s president to sign a contract, not with him, but with another, “in” Hollywood comedy singer. His name: Allan Sherman. “Just give him a listen.” Urged Burns, and Maitland said “sure.” His name was little-known outside the broadcast business. It labeled a pudgy-bodied writer-developer who lived next door to Harpo Marx over in Brentwood. For fun, Sherman would sing his parody songs at parties. He’d even sung his parody of “Big Bad John” at the Conkling party rewritten as “Big Bad Jim.” Burns said Sherman’s repertoire was ready for records. Plenty of laughers. Satires on songs everybody knew the words of. Like from My Fair Lady: A piece of rye bread isn ...

For Valentines day I present to you one of the great Hollywood love stories. Born with one blue eye and one green eye and a twinkle in both, Gracie Allen arrived in this world on July 26, 1895 in San Francisco. Her dream was to be on stage, but while on her way there, she attended secretarial school. She was invited by her roommate to Union Hill, NJ, to see if she was interested in working with either member of a comedy act that was splitting up. The act featured Billy Lorraine, and a young man named Nathan Birnbaum. Birnbaum’s stage name — George Burns — was constructed from the Burns Brothers Coal Company and the nickname, George, that his brother occasionally used. Gracie chose George as a partner and launched the laughs heard ‘round the world! In 1922, she and George Burns, who was born on January 20, 1896, made their first performance at the Hill Street Theatre in Newark, NJ, where they were paid $5 per day. George saw that the audience not only found Gracie’s character funny but they fell ...
