11x14 photo of Burns at the Hollywood ceremony naming a street for him, inscribed and signed in blue felt tip
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To John/Best/George Burns". B/w 11x14. George Burns, the star of vaudeville, radio, television and motion pictures,died in 1996 at the age of 100. He co-starred with his wife Gracie Allen until her retirement in 1958 (she died in 1964), then continued performing in television, theater and nightclubs as a solo act. When he returned to films in 1975 after a 30-year hiatus, Burns won the 1975 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor (The Sunshine Boys). He later starred in the title role in Oh, God (1977) and appeared in Going in Style (1979) and 18 Again! (1988). The comedian, who was honored in television specials celebrating his 90th and 95th birthdays, also wrote Gracie, A Love Story (1988) and 100 Years, 100 Stories (1996). Hollywood ordnances do not normally permit naming a street for a living person, but an exception was made for George Burns when he turned 90 in 1986. Nine years later, on George's 99th, a cross street was re-named Gracie Allen Drive. Now, two blocks from the Beverly Center Mall, you can stand at the corner of Burns and Allen. Notch at upper left edge. Top left corner creased and chipped. Ink note (unknown hand) on verso. Otherwise fine condition.
