This Vitaphone short is utterly charming. Gracie Allen was brilliant! Love everything about it!

I can't believe you posted this! I was just looking at Gracie Allen on YouTube and thinking I should post something of her. She's one of my role models! When Dad was in the nursing home, I played him old radio shows like Burns and Allen, hoping they would sound familiar to him.

Gracie was brilliant. George was her straight man. Later in life she played bridge, lived a Beverly Hills life, left no clues about the early vaudeville days and before. I love all her references to her brothers and other scummy family members. The comedy is much smarter than it appears at first. Glad you get it too, Sally!
