Nathan Bёrnbaum, better known as George Burns (Nathan Birnbaum or George Burns, 20.01.1896 – 9.03.1996) – American comedian, actor and writer. During his long career has worked on vaudeville, movies, radio programs and a number of television projects. Has spoken with his wife, Gracie Allen (Gracie Allen). Arched eyebrows and constant smoking cigars have become a sort trademarks of George; He successfully used them for over three quarters of a century. At some point, Burns went into the shadows, but with 79 years of career, George has found a kind of second wind; he continued to work until his death in 1996.
Nathan Bёrnbaum was the ninth of twelve children Bёrnbauma Louis (Louis Birnbaum) and Dorothy Bluth (Dorothy Bluth). His father occasionally moonlighted singing in the local synagogue; during the epidemic of 1903 he contracted a serious form of influenza and died. After the death of his father, Nathaniel he began to earn a living – he was cleaning shoes, selling newspapers and perform various errands. At 7 years old boy was promoted to the manufacturer’s syrup in the local confectionery; from that moment and began his rise to fame. In the confectionery Netti Bёrnbaum made friends with several children of his age; they created their own singing group. Soon the children found that adults really like their singing and decided to try to make a career in show business. At first, their quartet worked on ferries in the saloons, brothels and even in the streets.
In 4th grade Burns left the school in order to be able to spend more time performances. Like many artists of his generation, he is not limited to any specific genre and tried virtually everything that could please the audience – the boy sang, danced and even fabricate tricks on roller skates. It was at this time Nathan started smoking cigars; in the future they will be his peculiar brand name. Then Bёrnbaum invented his permanent stage name – ‘George Burns’. Later he told me that the idea for a nickname he immediately suggested two popular while baseball – George H. Burns (George H. Burns) and George J.. Burns (George J. Burns); both of them have achieved excellent results and no doubt, along with their names Nathan just had to get all at least a piece of luck.
Often Burns has performed together with the girls; should be noted, however, that the novels with their partners, he studiously avoided. All, however, changed when George met a young Irish Gracie Allen. Soon they were married; Their marriage lasted 38 years, until his death Gracie in 1964.
In the movie, the scene Burns moved to the mid-30s; the first time he starred in the comedy short films. Among his partners at that time were such stars of classical cinema as Fred Astaire (Fred Astaire) and Bob Hope (Bob Hope). It is known that due to the indirect intervention Burns and Allen was born a series of ‘road’ paintings Hope and Bing Crosby (Bing Crosby).
A lot of the couple succeeded and on the radio. The most famous of the project at that time was ‘Shaw George Burns and Gracie Allen’ (‘The George Burns & Gracie Allen Show’); it Burns and Allen on the plot were not married, so Grace regularly courted invited various celebrities. In 1950, the program moved on television screens.
Gracie Allen died on August 27, 1964, from the long-standing heart disease. After her death, George continued to work on radio and television, and even published a number of books. Burns wife survived for 32 years – he died in March 1996; at the time of death, the actor was 100 years old.
