George Burns was another comic legend! That must not be denied! But which of his 3 movies I have on DVD was he best in? Let's look at each one. First,Oh God! When John Denver asked God why he didn't do miracles,God (Burns) said miracles disrupted Eart's natural balance. Next,Going In Style. This time,5'7" Burns,Art Carney,and Lee Starsberg robbed a bank because they didn't like the limits they were pinned with by Social Security,only to have Alex Trebek arrest them for their bank robbery! Third,The Sunshine Boys. This was Burns Oscar winner. It was his greatest movie,but he backed into this role when first pick Jack Benny died of pancreatic cancer before filming began! The legacy Burns left us will ALWAYS be with us!

A great comic. There's a great interview he did when he was 98, where he refers to shrinking in old age: "Burns still hasn't been able to figure out why the Department of Motor Vehicles allowed him to drive until he was 93. As a matter of fact, he isn't sure why he was ever allowed to drive. "I was a lousy driver when I was 33," he asserts. "I not only went too fast, but my mind was always on shows and scripts. I was constantly making left turns while I was signaling right turns. But at least in those days I could see over the steering wheel. By 93, I had shrunk quite a lot. My car was known as the Phantom Cadillac. People would see it whizzing by and they would swear there was no driver."
