George Burns in Concert
Starring George Burns
Typical George Burns! Funny as can be and a wonderful 57 Minutes definitely worth watching!
Here is what the cover has to say:
With his ever present cigar in hand, George Burns has been in show business for almost 75 years. Along with his wife, the late-great Gracie Allen, the team of Burns and Allen moved from one success to another. From vaudeville, movies, radio and on to television, their popularity kept them center stage in the hearts and minds of millions of Americans. Now appearing in George Burns in Concert, Burns concedes, "I love show business as much today as I did the years I flopped at it." In this special one-man show, filmed before a live audience, it's certainly the proof of a master comedian in love with his profession.
He's been in showbusiness most of his life. He played everything from a horses back to a horses front and then at the age of 79 he became a dramatic actor. When he was 80/81 he became God and he played God w/o make-up. And then at 85 he became a Country Singer.
They always say the toughest part of acting is crying and laughing. Not for him. If he wants to cry, he thinks of his sex-life and if he wants to laugh he thinks of his sex-life. He must be a pretty good actor, 'cause when he looks in the mirror in the morning, he laughs and cries at the same time.
"When I was 27, people discovered I had a great talent and they were right. I was married to her for 38 years."
"The first thing I do every morning is read the obituaries. If I'm not in there, I have breakfast and if I'm in there, I still have breakfast, 'cause I'm not leaving on an empty stomach."
"When I wrote this song, I predicted that it was going to be a big hit and I'll keep singing it until it is!"
