Burns’ Home in Beverly HillsApril 18, 2009
George and Gracie lived for many years in this Beverly Hills home. In his book Gracie: A Love Story, George writes about how people thought that they really were the characters that they played on television. So sometimes tourists would visit with the couple by simply appearing in their backyard. George said that Gracie was very gracious to them and played the part.
Above is a scan of an actual postcard that was available for sale along with others with pictures of other stars’ homes. The face reads “Residence of Mr. and Mrs. George Burns (Gracie Allen), Beverly Hills, California.” The reverse side says that the card was published by Western Publishing & Novelty Co., Los Angeles Calif. and indicates that the printing method is “C.T.Art-Colortone.”
