Gracie - A Love Story

Gracie - A Love Story

SKU: BPB-3238081166

For forty years my act consisted of one joke. An then she died.  Her name was Gracie Allen, but she was on a first-name basis with America.  There was only one Gracie, and this is the story of her life, as told by the only person who could, George Burns.


Offstage she was a devoted wife, the loving mother of two adopted children - and throughout her career in vaudeville, radio, television, and the movies she managed to hide the fact that her left arm had been horribly scarred in a childhood accident and that she suffered from crippling migraine headaches.  Offstage, george explains, she was nothing life the dizzy charactor she played, "except maybe for ethe time she backed up into a parked car and managed to cinvince the driver of that car that he'd hit her"


George Burns has written five previous bestsellers, but Gracie is the story he has never told before.  It is the story of a woman who made America laugh for forty years, who selected the sickest child in the orphanage as her own. Gracie is a story that will make readers laugh and cry.  It is the story of a romance so strong it has endured almost 25 years after her death.
