Item Details
Description
"George Burns: All My Best Friends" by George Burns written with David Fisher, published by G.P. Putnam's Sons; 1989, First Edition, First printing with '1' present in the line on the copyright page; illustrated.

Dust jacket; hard boards with gold lettering on spine; 6.1/4" x 9.1/4", dark greenish-gray endpapers, small label with bared name on the front ep, 320 pages including Index + 3 blocks with photos on glossy paper, foxed outer edges of the pages, very good condition.

"This memoir is funny and touching. Now in his 90s, the veteran comic, writing with freelancer Fisher, describes life in show business from the 1900s onward, recalling how he and his young friends broke into vaudeville and made it to stardom on radio, in films and on TV. The master raconteur invigorates his story with anecdotes about Eddie Cantor, Sophie Tucker, Jolson, Fannie Brice, Jack Benny, the Marx Brothers et al., fellow performers living today only in memory. "Most of what I said is true, the rest is show business," Burns disarmingly admits. In any case, this is a singularly entertaining, personal history." [review]
