George Burns (1896-1996) was a struggling vaudeville comedian when he met GRACIE ALLEN(1895-1964), who thought she had left show business for a secretarial career. Together, they became one of America's most beloved comedy teams, with Burns writing the lines and playing the straight man, and Allen getting the laughs. They debuted on radio in 1931. A string of comedy films followed over the next decade. Their popular TV show, The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show, ran for eight years (1950-1958) until Gracie's retirement. While in college in the 1930s, JOHN RAITT began drawing portraits of famous people. He sent his artwork to each subject with a request that it be autographed and returned to him. Two horizontal folds. Adhesive residue at corners. Worn at edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
