SWEET, KIND MAN 9 de noviembre de 2006
Por RBI - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa dura Compra verificada
WHEN I WAS A BOY, I THOUGHT THE FUNNIEST PEOPLE IN THE WORLD WERE BURNS AND ALLEN, LAUREL AND HARDY AND JACK BENNY AND RODCHESTER. AS I GOT OLDER I ADDED GROUCHO AND W.C. FIELDS. BUT GEORGE BURNS AND GRACIE ALLEN WERE SPECIAL. THEY WERE LIKE SOME OF MY FAMILY, LIKE NEIGHBORS, LIKE, WELL, REAL PEOPLE. ADDED TO THAT WAS THE FACT GEORGE AND JACK BENNY WERE THE BEST OF FRIENDS ALL THEIR LIVES. THIS IS JUST A MARVELOUS BOOK AND I DON'T UNDERSTAND THE REVIEWER WHO SAW IT AS MAKING GEORGE LOOK SORDID. IT MADE HIM LOOK EVEN MORE HUMAN AND KINDER. HE WAS DEVOTED TO GRACIE, TO HIS FAMILY AND TO JACK. HE WAS A BRILLIANT AND KIND MAN ALL HIS LIFE AND ONE OF OUR NATIONAL TREASURES. READING THE BOOK WAS LIKE SITTING DOWN AND REMINISCING WITH OLD FRIENDS AND MARTIN GOTTFRIED SHOULD BE COMMENDED FOR HIS WORK.

I RECOMMEND THIS BOOK FOR EVERYONE WHO IS A FAN OF BURNS AND ALLEN AND JACK BENNY, ANOTHER KIND MAN SADDLED WITH A REALLY MISERABLE WIFE, NOTED FOR SUCH THINGS AS THROWING A DECORATED MARINE WAR HERO OUT OF ONE OF THIER PARTIES BECAUSE HE WASN'T "HOLLYWOOD". BUT I DIGRESS, PLEASE READ THE BOOK, IT'S ONE YOU WILL KEEP AND READ AGAIN, ESPECIALLY IF YOU FEEL DOWN OR DISCOURAGED. GEORGE AND GRACIE, I LOVE YOU AND THANK YOU FOR ALL THE JOY YOU BROUGHT TO US THROUGH THE YEARS.

Unvarnished 8 de julio de 2003

To the earlier reviewer : If you can't stand the unvarnished truth, why are you reading this book. If you want rose-colored platitudes, read People magazine. This book tells it like it was, warts and all. Isn't that what a proper biography should do?

Excellent, insightful bio 13 de noviembre de 2011
Por Fr. M. David - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa dura
Warm, entertaining but the problems are there too; this is an excellent bio of a truly great entertainer. If you're interested in George Burns, Gracie Allen or in entertainers of that era; this is a good choice.
Highly entertaining insight 17 de septiembre de 2012
Por HistoryShowsUs - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa dura
This is one of the most entertaining Hollywood bios have read in a long time. It gives great insight to the genius of George Burns as well as the personalities of the great people he chose as his friends. The love for his long time wife was well told and highly touching. The antics with the great Jack Benny added a great look at the depths he went to in order to play a prank on that long time friend and shows how much Benny appreciated that friendship. Even the seedier side of George's life (which was minimal) is sympathetically told. I can't count the number of good laughs I got from this book or the number of times touching moments with his family and Gracie brought tears to my eyes. No Hollywood life is perfect but if any came close this was it. I highly recommend this book.

This book is cheap Tabloid Schlock 29 de septiembre de 1999
Por Un cliente - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa dura
In this world, it is rare that a man show as much love, kindeness, and humility as did George Burns. However, this book chooses rather to focus on the sordid details of his life. The sexual immorality, the dirty jokes off stage, the things that George himself varnished over. George had a right to varnish over the negatives. It is the soul of the man. It is how he made it to 100 years of age. This book instead punches him below the belt posthumously. I was and am a big George Burns fan, and I was sorely disapointed that someone could be so cheap and callous as to sully his image.
