About the author


  1. What a sweet ending, with the four friends watching George and Gracie do a lovely little dance on television. This show incorporates the eye of television so wonderfully, both to look out and look in. In the final shot, there is a wonderful symmetry as they each sit at the foot of one of the Morton's twin beds and acknowledge their applause, with the television in the center.

  2. There's that Mr. MERKLE again! Who the heck was he? He gets mentioned in at least 3 or 4 episodes 🙂

  3. Blanche is totally ignorant as to what constitutes a proper diet. Besides she needs a diet more than Harry. A fat head.

  4. There but for the Grace of God go I?
    No, no, no.
    Certainly not.
    This woman would surprise me if she couldn't limp grace….fully.

  5. The opening scene must be one of the most memorable of all comedies of all time.
    Gracie pulls it off single-handedly, but Fred Clarke adds the finishing touch.
    No kidding, of all the scenes in the series, because there are so many coming at you in rapid-fire succession, you may tend to be fuzzy about all of them.
    Except this kitchen scene on how to freeze boiling water so as to have it on tap by defrosting it.
    Not even the Marx Brothers would have thought up something like that.
    Buster Keaton perhaps, when he threw (what I think they call) a life-preserver, and when in another film he dropped anchor and it……………floated.
