In the spring of 1947, Gracie turned her eye toward things that are fresh and new: a new hat, a new hemline, and a new home. The real estate wrangling of Beverly Hills most brilliantly befuddled wife finds the Burnses bunking with various members of the cast, occupying a janitor's apartment, and even living seperately at the YMCA/YWCA. All's well that ends well...but, until then it's hilarious!
In 1940, America was still staggering its way out of the Great Depression and war clouds were rolling in from Europe. The upcoming Presidential campaign spotlight turned to perhaps the unlikeliest, but certainly the most entertaining, candidate of all - Gracie Allen. Politics was perfect for Gracie's particular brand of logical illogic. Join the hilarity, and the throngs of supporters, as George Burns, Gracie, and their entire cast embark on a whistle-stop tour all the way to the Surprise Party's national convention in Omaha, Nebraska.
Comedy's first couple were busy hosts. As friends and neighbors of Hollywood's greats, you never knew who'd turn up next for a dose of Gracie's nonsense and a song or two from George. This collection of hilarious half-hour visits to the Burns house features a galaxy of famous guests! Rita Hayworth, Frank Sinatra, Veronica Lake, Fred Astaire, Alan Ladd, Jack Benny, Harpo Marx, Gregory Peck, Mickey Rooney, Ronald Reagan, and more stop by to exchange gibes with George, be baffled by Gracie, and delight audiences with their playful side.
Gracie and her neighbor, Blanche Morton, decide to form a Housewives Guild.
