Comedienne
    (July 26, 1902-August 27, 1964)
    Birth name Grace Ethel Cecile Rosalie Allen
    Died at 62 years old of a heart attack
    Married her comedy partner, George Burns (1926)
    Famous line after George would say 'Say Goodnight, Gracie' Gracie would say 'Goodnight Gracie!'
    Starred in the TV show 'Burns and Allen'
    Starred in 'College Humor,' 'Big Broadcast,' 'Pulling a Bone,' 'We're Not Dressing,' 'Let's Dance,' 'Love in Bloom,' 'Honolulu,' 'The College Swing,' 'Two Guys and a Sailor'
    Appeared as herself in the spoof 'The Gracie Allen Murder Case'
    She had one blue eye and one green eye.
    In almost all of her movies, she appeared as either 'Gracie' or 'Miss Allen'
    Her nickname was Googie.
    She had three middle names.
    Her initials G.E.C.R.A. was an anagram of her first name Grace.
    Comedian George Burns discovered Gracie in 1922, and immediately saw that she was the funnier of the two. So he became her straight man, while she delivered the punch lines.
    Her gags included many relatives such as a missing brother and her infatuation with actor, Charles Boyer.
    Her comedy was also a simplistic logic, for example, the mailman returns a letter saying it weighed too much and needs an additional stamp, Gracie would say, well that will only make it heavier.
    She and George were married nearly forty years (1926-64), when she died.
    In her honor, The Gracie Allen Award is given to the American Women in Radio and Television.
