“When I was a boy the Dead Sea was only sick.”
Fifteen years ago today George Burns shuffled off this mortal coil. What a life! Vaudeville, radio, tv, film…Burns was around for the bulk of the major advancements made in the entertainment industry. And talk about longevity…he lived to the ripe old age of 100, and worked almost all the way up until his death. With cigar in hand, of course. Just how many did he smoke a day? If you’ve visited the “Gracie Discovers a Movie Star” episode page you know the answer…if not, click here.
The quote above is only one of a bunch of George’s gems. So after you’ve listened to the episode, check these out, and let us know your favorite!
Thanks for the laughs, George.
