Quick Overview

Starring Gracie Allen, George Burns, George Barbier, Joan Marsh, Ray

Milland

Directed by Norman Z. McLeod



Print: black/white

Runtime: 64 min.

Genre: comedy

Print Quality: B



Gracie Allen (Gracie Allen) assumes the "management" of the shop

owned by her papa Horatio Allen (George Barbier), turning it into a radio

station and then an aviary---with the usual Gracie Allen logic---while

distracted Papa is trying to get younger daughter, beauty contest winner

Florence (Joan Marsh), married before she can head to Hollywood and

get into the movies. The story moves to Hollywood, where, with Gracie

around, kidnappers get kidnapped and the chatter between her and

George Burns (George Burns)even takes a few satirized shots at

Filmland, in addition to their usual unusual routines. Guy Lombardo,

top-billed on the ads and posters with Burns and Allen but not the cast

listings, and dance team Frank Veloz and Yolanda, fill in where needed

between the cracks of the mostly on-the-fly plot, and they don't seem to

be taking their gigs all that seriously either. Burns & Allen Radio fans, the

few of us that still remember "Radio", will love it,while others are likely to

give it a "say what" or 'duh", especially if they were raised on television

comedy of the past 20 years.
