That was a very neat backdrop of a Broken Star. That must have taken some time to paint. Funny how many little old ladies went to kiss him after he walked into the audience! Thanks for the post.

George Burns was a wonderful man. The quilt painting behind him was amazing.

Both were great! He was so much fun to watch, both with Gracie and without. Love the Broken Star backdrop.

That was quite a backdrop and I love George Burns - believe it or not he is my friend's grandfather - my friend was named after her grandmother -Gracie - they have both been gone for a long time but we still have many videos and movies to remind us of their talent. I love listening to their old radio shows too. Thanks for sharing.
