George Burns on Acting




Acting is all about honesty. 
If you can fake that, you've got it made. 


-George Burns


Thanks to a business associate and friend from Maui I was able to see George Burns before he passed away. My friend and her husband came to Las Vegas, using my position as a write off, for her 30th birthday. She walked over to a roulette wheel and put $100 on number 30. It came up! Her husband dragged her from the table and they used the money for a first class vacation. Among the perks, they took my wife and I to see George Burns at the Rivierra. He did his song and dance without ever getting up from his stool. Music and comedy ranged from the 1890's to contemporary. "Oh God" what a performer!

I don't recall ever hearing any of his work. I'm sure he was smoothe with his performance though. Got to love the old performers.

"Oh God", "The Sunshine Boys" and many other movies, tv shows and very famous radio history (with Gracie Allen, his wife).
