“Say Goodnight, Gracie” MythApril 2, 2009
George sets the record straight:
It’s a show-business myth that Gracie replied to my request to “Say goodnight, Gracie,” by saying, “Good night, Gracie.” In fact, that’s probably one of the most misquoted lines in theater history. Maybe she said it once, but I don’t even remember that. She simply said, “Good night.” There were many reasons for that, the main one was that I just never thought of it, from now on she will have said it.
