About this Item

Legendary, longevous comedian of radio, film and television with wife Gracie Allen; ironically, his late-life film "The Sunshine Boys" with Walter Matthou in 1976 earned him an Oscar and began the second phase of his career. Signed Postal Cover, 6½" X 3½", cancelled in the city of Burns' birth (New York, New York) on the day of his birth (January 20), 1974. Single 8-cent "George Gershwin" stamp at upper right. Fine. At the center, Burns pens large and bold in blue ballpoint "Best -- / George Burns." Small portion or original transmittal envelope also present. An enterprising envelope honoring another George, cancelled in an appropriate place on an appropriate date. Most unusual!. Bookseller Inventory # 24446
