Publisher's Summary

"Gracie, why should I give your mother a bushel of nuts? What'd she ever give me?"

"Why, George, she gave you me. And, I'm as good as nuts."

George Burns once declared that his wife was "smart enough to be the dumbest woman in show-business history." And, indeed, Gracie Allen leaves her verbal opponents dazed and confused, and leaves her audience in stitches. Singing and one-liner slinging George comes across as a blithe bystander who had once meandered over to befriend a befuddled-but-beguiling broad and discovered, to his absolute astonishment, that he couldn't possibly walk away.

The madcap scenarios and rib-tickling ripostes in these 16 digitally remastered episodes are as cleverly sharp now as they were when they were originally broadcast in 1947-48. This eight-hour set includes many episodes available for the first time anywhere.

Episodes Include: Last Year's Christmas Bills, 01-09-47; Poker Game, 01-16-47; Country Cousin, 01-23-47; Guest: Bea Lillie, 01-30-47; Gracie Takes Up Crime Solving, 03-06-47; St. Bernard, 03-27-47; Back From a Vacation in the Woods, 09-04-47; The Long Dress, 09-11-47; Gracie Gets a Job, 10-09-47; Gracie Has Romantic Notions, 11-20-47; French Singer, 11-27-47; Lady Killer, 12-11-47; George Is Losing His Hair, 03-18-48; Gracie's Problem with Salesmen, 05-13-48; Spiritualism, 05-27-48; Gracie Takes Over for Louella Parsons, 06-03-48.
