Welcome Burns and Allen
Lambchops (1929)

*** (out of 4)

George Burns and Gracie Allen had one of the greatest relationship in Hollywood history. Their comic timing would take them into radio, television, movies and just about any other thing you can think of. Their first shot at the movies came in this 8 minute sound short, which shows the two doing one of the acts that they did on vaudeville. If you're unfamiliar with these early talking shorts, they were basically just filmed in a building with a cameraman, a director, the stars and someone able to record sound. They were mostly filmed in one take so we really get a great idea of what it would have been like seeing Burns and Allen on a stage.

The act here is pretty funny for the most part and especially a "joke" that Allen tells yet she's not bright enough to realize that it doesn't make a bit of sense. The two also get to perform a nice song and dance and the short ends with a pretty funny walk off. Fans of the two will certainly enjoy seeing this.
