Let George do it

Posted by J. T. Stocks on August 03, 2008 at 16:43

I have been trying to find the origin of "Let George do it."
I had thought that it might be from the title of the 1940 George Formby film. Then I found a reference to "Let George Do It" on the Internet Movie Database as the working title of the 1928 Laurel and Hardy short "From Soup to Nuts."

Are there any references to "Let George do it" prior to 1928?
