George Burns, born
Jan. 20, 1896 in NYC (died in 1996) is the only actor
born in the 19th century that is being featured on this
site. Burns debuted in the late 1920's, and was
extremely busy during the 1930's. By the time the
80's rolled around, Burns was already pretty old, yet he
headlined some classic 80's movies. As a sequel to
the 1977 hit Oh, God!, Oh, God! Book II was
released in 1980, and Oh, God! You Devil in 1984.
Some of you might even remember the "George Burns Comedy
Week" series in 1985. Other than TV appearances,
the only other movie Burns starred in in the 80's was 18
Again! (1988). He made only one additional movie
appearance before his death.
