Vaudeville favorite George Wallace is both star and co-author of the Australian comedy Let George Do It. Per the title, the film concerns the efforts of the hero to "do right" by his buddies, only to court disaster with his well-meaning interference. Most of the supporting cast is comprised of Wallace's music-hall cronies, including Letty Craydon and Alec Kellaway. With such an embarrassment of comic riches, the audience feels compelled to laugh even when nothing funny is taking place. Let George Do It was directed by Ken G. Hall, Australia's leading filmmaker of the 1930s.
