Happy Anniversary

Here we have George and Gracie with Harry Von Zell, the announcer on their show.  I believe that this is behind the scene of the first set they used on television.  In the background can be seen the inside of both the front door and window of the Burns’ TV house.

  1. Actually, the picture of George, Gracie, and Harry Von Zell was taken on the set of the kitchen in the “remodeled house” the Burns returned to after their extended stay in a New York hotel. Notice also Gracie’s hairstyle, which she adopted late in the series.

    I was very pleased to find this website. Burns and Allen were superb, not only as comedians and comic actors, but also as human beings. They deserve to be warmly remembered and appreciated.
