Interesting Facts

#Fact
1 Along with Bob Hope and Señor Wences, he is one of three The Muppet Show (1976) guest stars to live to be 100 years old.
2 His father was an Austrian Jewish immigrant and his mother was a Polish Jewish immigrant.
3 Interviewed in "The Great Comedians Talk About Comedy" by Larry Wilde. [1968]
4 Was a struggling vaudevillian in his early youth, often appearing as a trick roller skater and in ballroom dance acts. Some of his acts were pretty bad and work was hard to come by, so he was forced to frequently change his stage name, appearing variously as Willy Delight, Captain Betts and Buddy Links.
5 At age 13, he charged immigrants coming by boat from Ellis Island $5 for dance lessons, telling his clients that this was a necessary prerequisite for becoming a U.S. citizen.
6 Brother of William Burns.
7 Pictured with wife Gracie Allen on a 44¢ USA commemorative postage stamp, issued 11 August 2009, in the Early TV Memories issue honoring The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show (1950).
8 He was awarded 3 Stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Live Theatre at 6672 Hollywood Boulevard; for Motion Pictures at 1639 Vine Street; and for Television at 6510 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California.
9 According to Phyllis Diller's autobiography "Like a Lampshade in a Whorehouse", in the late 1960s Broadway producer David Merrick approached Burns with the idea of him playing Horace Vandergelder in "Hello, Dolly!" with his good friend Jack Benny in drag as Dolly Levi. The intention was to turn Broadway on its ear and revive flagging interest in the show, which had been running since 1964, originally with Carol Channing as Dolly Levi. This idea never came to fruition (Diller did appear in the show for three months in 1970).
10 Although Gracie Allen was in love with another man when they first met, he carried a ring in his pocket until she finally agreed to marry him.
11 The whales in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986) were named George and Gracie after Burns and his wife, Gracie Allen.
12 Interviewed around the time of the death of wife Gracie Allen in the summer of 1964, he described her as being his "next breath".
13 Was very good friends with Harpo Marx.
14 In the early 1940s, during the height of their popularity, Burns had a brief extramarital affair. He apologized to Gracie Allen by giving her a new coffee table, and nothing more was said about it. However, years later, when Gracie was serving coffee to a friend in their living room, George overheard her say, "You know, I wish George would have another affair. I really need a new coffee table".
15 In the movie 18 Again! (1988) Burns' character celebrates his 81st birthday, although Burns himself was already 92 years old.
16 Was originally supposed to deliver the eulogy at the funeral of his best friend, Jack Benny, but he was so overcome with emotion after trying that he let someone else do it.
17 Biography in: "American National Biography". Supplement 1, pp. 82-84. New York: Oxford University Press, 2002.
18 He was in very fragile health and could not attend his 100th birthday celebration in person.
19 Discovered Ann-Margret and made her his opening act in Las Vegas, Nevada.
20 Daughter Sandra Burns adopted 1934, son Ronnie Burns adopted 1935.
21 In the beginning of their partnership, Gracie Allen played the straight character and Burns had the funny lines. When he realized Gracie got more laughs, he switched their roles.
22 His first marriage was in name only. In the early 1920s, he was doing a ballroom dancing act with Hannah Siegal, and they were offered a 36-week contract to go out on the road. When her father objected to her traveling with a young man outside the bonds of matrimony, George and Hannah got married so as not to turn down the offer. When they returned from their three-month engagement, they divorced.
23 Biography in: "Who's Who in Comedy" by Ronald L. Smith. Pg. 78-80. New York: Facts on File, 1992. ISBN 0816023387
24 Until his death, he smoked as many as ten cigars a day.
25 Took the name "Burns" from the Burns Brothers Coal Company, whose trucks he'd stolen lumps from growing up, to help heat the family home. "George" was a sobriquet his brother occasionally used.
26 He and Gracie Allen continued to play single, even years after they were married; declining ratings prompted George to "update" the act on-air. He said later, "We were the only couple on radio who got married because we had to".
27 Actually wore a hairpiece for most of his performing career; appears briefly without it in The Sunshine Boys (1975).
28 Best friends with fellow comedian Jack Benny, who also served as best man at his and Gracie Allen's wedding. Burns loved playing jokes on Benny, almost as much as watching him laugh (and pound the floor) afterward.
29 At the time of his Oscar win, he was the oldest recipient of an Academy Award. He was 80 when he won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for The Sunshine Boys (1975). This record was surpassed by Jessica Tandy in 1990 and later by Christopher Plummer in 2012 who received his Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor at age 82.
30 "The Burns & Allen Show" (on CBS and NBC from 1934 to 1950) was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 1994.
31 Was a regular on the "Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts". He was even a guest of honor in 1978.
32 Uncle of Lou Weiss, chairman emeritus of William Morris Agency, who got his mailroom start in agency business with help of 'Uncle Nate'.
33 Interred along with his wife Gracie Allen at Forest Lawn (Glendale), Glendale, California, USA, in the Freedom Mausoleum, Sanctuary of Heritage.
34 As a child, he attended P.S. 22 and left after the fourth grade due to economic reasons.

Quotes

#Quote
1 Acting is all about honesty. If you can fake that, you've got it made.
2 You know you're getting old when you stoop to tie your shoelaces and wonder what else you could do while you're down there.
3 [on his act with Gracie Allen]: The only rule we followed was that we would only use jokes that were funny. If people wanted jokes that weren't funny they could listen to our competitors.
4 I'd announce that I was going to sing, and all our guests would make a ring around the piano. But somehow I managed to fight my way through the ring and sing anyway.
5 At home we ate fish every Friday, as Catholics were then supposed to do. Being Jewish, I compromised. I wore a hat when I ate fish, out of respect for my own religion and the fish's family.
6 Yale men do not like to be told anything by people who didn't go to Yale. The closest I came to Yale was once I had one of their padlocks.
7 [on vaudeville] When we played the back end of a horse we always knew that if we worked hard and did a good job we could become the front end.
8 [on meeting Gracie Allen] I remember looking down at her, looking right into her green eye and her blue eye, and thinking what a pretty little girl she is. I was hoping she'd work with me.
9 [on his wedding] The justice of the peace spoke so fast I didn't know if Gracie and I had gotten married or had bought land in Florida.
10 It's one of the old show business axioms. No matter how successful you've been, there's always a younger and sexier seal coming along.
11 "I never wanted to play Shakespeare", [Gracie Allen] a statement she had proved by becoming my partner. Instead we played Cleveland.
12 [as he was about to sing "Take Me Out To The Ball Game" during the 1983 All-Star Game at Comiskey Park in Chicago] I not only sang this song at the first All-Star Game, I also sang it at the first ballgame.
13 [asked what he thought of Mary Pickford] I never slept with her.
14 [sitting in an empty movie theater] The first movie I ever saw was the first movie I was ever in. I was sitting alone in the theater then like I am now.
15 [on W.C. Fields] When he was 22 he played England with his young wife, who was 20. His trick was juggling cigar boxes. The star of the show was an old geezer who had a funny voice. The wife fell in love with the old man. Fields stole his accent and delivery, and the old guy stole Fields' wife. I think Fields got the best of the deal.
16 [about his relationship with wife Gracie Allen] The only thing I ever felt guilty about was a telegram we got in vaudeville. It was from [Florenz Ziegfeld Jr.] and he was out front and that was one of the nights I blew smoke in Gracie's face and he hated my guts. So he sends a cable saying, "I'll pay $200 for the dame, $100 for the act". I never read it to her. I told her it was from some of the boys at the Friars Club. Before she died I said, "Gracie, I got a confession to make. Remember that cable we got that time in vaudeville?" and she said, "You mean the one from Ziegfeld?"
17 [on how his act with Gracie Allen got started in vaudeville] Gracie was supposed to be the straight woman. The first night we had 40 people out front and they didn't laugh at one of my jokes, but every time Gracie asked me a question they fell out of their seats. So I made her the comic and the act was a hit from that moment on. That was the beginning of Burns and Allen.
18 [on Al Jolson] It was easy enough to make Jolson happy at home. You just had to cheer him for breakfast, applaud wildly for lunch, and give him a standing ovation for dinner.
19 [on Carol Channing] She never just enters a room. Even when she comes out of the bathroom, her husband applauds.
20 Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city.
21 [during Dean Martin's roast for Frank Sinatra] We singers aren't worried about getting laughs . . . see, nobody's laughing, and I'm not worried.
22 If you live to the age of a hundred, you have it made, because very few people die past the age of a hundred.
23 The most important thing to succeed in show business is sincerity. And if you can fake that, you've got it made.
24 [when asked how he got the title role in Oh, God! (1977)] I was the closest to Him in age.
25 [discussing his role in Going in Style (1979)] I had to learn how to act old."
26 At my age, the only thing hot waiting for me in my dressing room is a bowl of soup.
27 I'd rather be a failure at something I love than a success at something I hate.
28 [interviewed in his old age about sex scenes] What actresses do today when they appear on the screen is what they did once upon a time for getting to appear on the screen.
29 Happiness is: A good martini, a good meal, a good cigar and a good woman . . . or a bad woman, depending on how much happiness you can stand.
30 [on adultery] If you were married to Marilyn Monroe, you'd cheat with some ugly girl.
31 [at 87 years old] I was brought up to respect my elders and now I don't have to respect ANYBODY.
32 [commenting on winning the Oscar at age 80] It couldn't have happened to an older guy.
33 I can't afford to die; I'd lose too much money.
34 There are many ways to die in bed, but the best way is not alone.
35 I don't believe in dying . . . it's been done.
36 I use the cigar for timing purposes. If I tell a joke, I smoke as long as they laugh and when they stop laughing I take the cigar out of my mouth and start my next joke.
37 If you stay in the business long enough and get to be old enough, you get to be new again.
38 A young mind in a healthy body is a wonderful thing. Especially for an old man with an open night.
39 Bridge is a game that separates the men from the boys. It also separates husbands and wives.
40 I would go out with women my age, but there are no women my age.
41 [on gravity] Everything that goes up must come down. But there comes a time when not everything that's down can come up.
42 In what other business can a guy my age drink martinis, smoke cigars and sing? I think all people who retire ought to go into show business. I've been retired all my life.
43 Nice to be here? At my age it's nice to be anywhere.
44 [on his age] I get a standing ovation just standing.
45 Well, anybody can be a straight man if he hears well. You just have to wait for laughs. A straight man just repeats the questions and the comedian gets the laughs and you just wait for them and don't let them die completely at the tail end of the laugh.
46 You know, lots of times people have asked me what [Gracie Allen] and I did to make our marriage work. It's simple - we didn't do anything. I think the trouble with a lot of people is that they work too hard at staying married. They make a business out of it. When you work too hard at a business you get tired, and when you get tired you get grouchy, you start fighting, and when you start fighting you're out of business.
47 I did go to school - my kind of school. When I was a kid I went out . . . and you meet people. You talk to them. Anybody says something that makes sense, it stays with you, rubs off on you. That kind of school.
48 [on appearance] Take care not to wear stripes that are out of sync with your wrinkles.
49 Retire? I'm going to stay in show business until I'm the only one left.
50 Fall in love with what you do for a living. I don't care what it is. It works.
51 I've been a straight man for so many years that from force of habit I repeat everything. I went out fishing with a fellow the other day and he fell overboard. He yelled, "Help! Help! Help!" so I said, "Help? Help? Help?" And while I was waiting for him to get his laugh, he drowned.
52 Smartness runs in my family. When I went to school I was so smart my teacher was in my class for five years.
