    Description

    George Burns and Gracie Allen Autographed Portrait. A wonderful 8 x10 still of the beloved husband-and-wife comedy team (married from 1926 until Gracie's death in 1964), probably from the early 1930s era when these stars were on contract to Paramount Studios. The legendary duo signed in black ink in the lower left corner, "Sincerely - Gracie Allen George Burns." George appears (as was his custom) epically exasperated, and Grace's pose - pointing at her head, as if indicating her laugh-reaping intellect - is especially charming. Stars of vaudeville, radio, movies, and TV, they had a marital record as legendary as their professional careers; when George died (at age 100!) in 1996, he was buried under Gracie's crypt, claiming he now wanted her to have "top billing." There is some minor creasing, especially in the upper right border, extending slightly over an inch into the picture area (not touching George's toupee); overall Very Fine condition. "Say goodnight, Gracie!" .
