Advertising a brand new product called "Spam". Born in New York City and educated at Queensborough Community College, she appeared on Broadway and choreographed Whitney Houston's international tours from 1989 to 1992. This series featured another wildly successful publicity stunt which had Gracie running for President of the United States. Khandi Alexander (born September 4, 1957) is an American dancer and film and television actress. The pair launched themselves into national stardom with their first major publicity stunt, Gracie's ongoing search for her missing brother. In their debut series, George and Gracie shared the bill with Guy Lombardo and his Orchestra.
Gracie Allen died of a heart attack in Hollywood at the age of 69 (or only 62). She had stopped making films in the early 1940s when color movies came in, too. At least one biographer has speculated that her sensitivity about that was what caused her to retire from television when color television came in, which would have revealed that feature to her fans. Allen had one green eye and one blue one.
Burns replied to them by publishing a book titled: I Love Her, That's Why. After her death, Burns told a reporter that he had received a number of letters asking why he remained married to "that fruitcake". She and Burns were deeply devoted to each other. Offstage she was anything but dimwitted, however: historians credit her with having the genius to deliver her lengthy diatribes in a fashion that made it look as though she was making her arguments up on the spot.
Allen's stage persona was as a bizarre, illogical, and not very bright woman. In the 1930s they adopted two children: Sandra Jean and Ronald "Ronnie" John; when Ronnie was grown, he joined the cast of his parents' 1950-1958 Monday-night television show on CBS, The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show. Bowing to reality, the team switched roles and the team had great success. Early on the team noticed that Gracie was getting far better audience laughs than George even though she was the comic foil of the team.
She teamed up with George Burns in 1922, and married him in 1926. Born into an Irish Catholic show-business family, Allen was educated at the Star of the Sea Convent School as a girl, and then became a vaudeville performer with her sister Bessie in 1909. They originated the catch-phrase "Say 'good-night,' Gracie.". Born Grace Ethel Cecile Rosalie Allen, she was the scatterbrain of the team Burns and Allen, and her husband George Burns was the straight man.
Gracie Allen (July 26, 1895 or 1902, San Francisco, California - August 27, 1964, Los Angeles, California) was a comedienne of the movies, radio, and early television. When it was pointed out to her that the earthquake took place 3 months before her claimed birthdate, she smiled and replied, "Well, it was an awfully big earthquake.". The date cited here, July 26, 1902, is taken from the "California Death Records" database of the State of California. During her lifetime, the year of her birth was commonly accepted as 1906, but when pressed for proof of this, Gracie would claim that her birth certificate had been destroyed in the big San Francisco earthquake. A note regarding her date of birth: According to which source you read, Gracie Allen was born July 26 1894, 1895, 1902 or 1906.
