    There are conflicting stories regarding Fred Clark's departure from the show. On-screen, George Burns explained that Clark had taken a role in a play and was unable to juggle both jobs. In "Say Goodnight, Gracie! The Story of George Burns and Gracie Allen," the authors stated that his wife, singer Benay Venuta resided in New York, and the strain of commuting from Hollywood on weekends to be with her proved overwhelming. In his third autobiography, Burns wrote that Clark was contractually obligated for one additional season but demanded an additional $500 a week (which would have been more than Burns was making), so he was let out of his contract.
