“Three things tell a man: his eyes, his friends and his favorite quotes.”
George Burns (American Comedian)
Date of Birth:
January 20, 1896
Date of Death:
March 9, 1996
George Burns was an Academy Award-winning American comedian, actor and writer.
His career spanned vaudeville, film, radio and television, with and without his equally legendary wife, Gracie Allen. His arched eyebrow and cigar smoke punctuation became familiar trademarks for over three quarters of a century. Enjoying a remarkable, unique career resurrection that began at age 79, and ended shortly before his death at 100, George Burns was as well known in the last two decades of his life as at any other time during his career.
