LET GEORGE DO IT is one of the best and most successful of the George Formby vehicles. The toothy, guitar-strumming Formby plays a dimwitted entertainer who is mistaken for a notorious Nazi spy. The misunderstanding is played to the hilt, culminating with our hero battling the forces of the Axis on the fields of Norway. The film's highlight is a bakery routine which dates back to Charlie Chaplin's 1914 epic DOUGH AND DYNAMITE. LET GEORGE DO IT was distinguished by the leading-lady presence of Phyllis Calvert, just on the verge of bigger things.
