Let George Do It: All Episodes

From May 1, 1946 through September 27, 1954:

The following Audition show sets up the background and introduces the theme and the characters. No evidence was found this episode was or was not broadcast on any date.


Date Aired: 1946/05/14
Episode Number: 000 [Audition]
Available: YES
Title: The First Client
Description: Mr. Winters, George Valentine's first client, is murdered right in George's office! The body disappears, Mrs. Winters disappears, and even George's secretary disappears!
Credits: Robert "Bob" Bailey, Shirley Mitchell as Claire, Eddie Firestone Jr. as Sonny, Polly Hopkins (writer), John Hiestand (announcer), Charles Dant (composer, conductor), Owen Vinson (director), Joseph Kearns, Georgia Backus, Howard McNear, Horace Murphy.
Premier Introduction: "George Valentine has been out of uniform only a few weeks. Blessed with an abundance of energy and adventuresome spirit and not too much money, he has sunk his last dime in office rent, a few pieces of furniture, and an ad in the classified section of the daily paper. An ad which reads 'Do you have a crime that needs solving, do you have a dog that needs walking, do you have a wife that needs spanking? Let George do it.' Now three days have passed and George, sitting on his swivel chair with his feet up on the desk is still anxiously waiting for a client, suddenly, the door bursts open."
First Line: [male voice] "Mr. Valentine?" [male voice 2] "Yes?" [male voice] "Mr. George Valentine?" [male voice 2] "Yes! Come right in."
Notes:
  1. Network Affiliation: Mutual - Don Lee
  2. End of Show: Cast performs a skit introducing the next week's episode with George talking to Mrs. Wentworth. She wants George to take on a case about a friend who "picks up things." After she leaves, Claire points out that Georges pen is missing.
  3. Sponsored by: Standard of California

Most `OTR Logs do not recognize the following first four broadcasts of Let George Do It. They are included here because of reasonable evidence of their being broadcast in the Los Angeles Times. Additional evidence is provided by show 5 where the ensemble characters of the plot seem to have formed relationships, not indicative of a "first show".

It had my name on it, my brand new address. It was from him…"

A woman who gave up her own musical career for just for the sake of a man who is as cold and bleak, as incapable of tenderness as the music he composes or the dreary stone house that they hibernate in. His name is Edmund Salter. He is very ill it's true but caring for him has made his wife even more than ill, she can't even smile anymore, nor will she tell me, her oldest and only remaining friend, the strange secret of her unhappiness, her worry, her fear, perhaps even her danger. Mr. Valentine, since I must leave shortly for New York, the opening of ballet, will you please, please come immediately to meet me at this author's home? It is far out on Ocean Drive, Pacific Bluffs, California. Sincerely, Yasha Hardwig

I need your help to get Mr. Valentine's help. You see I work for the same kind of a man you do, he likes trouble and so he's always in it. His name is Terrence Doyle and he's vice president of The Consolidated Machine Tool Company. Of course he would never, never admit how desperately he needs help, and right now, so please Miss Brooks, bring that help quick, otherwise it won't be long until I'm taking dictation from a corpse. Sincerely, Miss Mona Chandler."

My district is eastern California, Arizona, New Mexico. But Valentine, there's one place on my route I can't stay away from, it's the dullest, saddest, poorest, loneliest place on all Route 113. Gas, hamburgers, motel and the Malayan, the place is called Stillman's Last Chance, and brother it is. Now listen, last time I was there I bumped into the wrong cabin by mistake. I never see what happens except I get a knife in my face, a foot in my stomach and a fist on the jaw. The next thing I know I'm waking up between my own proper sheets and nobody will say who put me to bed. Nobody will explain a note in my pocket which said, 'Stop asking questions or you'll have a worse accident.' Valentine, I'm going back to that place but I'm no hero, I need your help. If you could come meet me there…"

So here it goes, you read in the newspapers the past year about the punishments of the sinful that were known as The Quotation Mark Killings. First there in the city, then several more times in towns up the valley and all by the same man. Only he was never caught.

That until a year ago we all got along quite well together without any disturbing element to ruffle the surface of our peaceful existence. Further, that this is the year nineteen and fifty and what happened seems almost impossible, but happen it did. And yet now, as of this morning, our town is once more peaceful. The disturbing element is no more, and why? Because Mr. Valentine, last night there was a fire and in that fire the witch was burned."

Yes, in the midst of our troubled and businesslike world this magnificent relic still exists and like a true internationalist, though its registry is meek, its present location is somewhere at anchor off a small, exclusive resort near Acapulco, Mexico.

Inside the coconut he grasps it, his hand makes a fist, but then Mr. Valentine he can't pull his hand out, the fist is too big. His greed is greater than his fear of the approaching hunter. Mr. Valentine, will you please come to visit me this evening, I need your help to complete the capture of the monkey. The monkey whose hand is already trapped. A monkey by the name of Lars Michelson."

That's the kind of a person I work for. I've been her secretary for the past six years. She can't even remember my last name. She's a combination of church music and just plain cat. Mr. Valentine I'm writing because she needs your help. She's being threatened or blackmailed or something though I'm sure she could be murdered before she'd bother to write a letter herself. She's not well, she works too hard and if she slaps your face don't quit, don't slap back because underneath she's nothing but a very small child, and for some reason very, very frightened. Also as I'm sure you'll agree, Miss Flora Stewart is the greatest actress in the world."

Title: The Discovery of Ponce, the Lion
Description: Who better to kill his accusers than the big dumb convict after his release from prison. But our convict wasn't smart enough to pull it off by himself. He needed major help from a minor player.
Credits: Robert "Bob" Bailey, Virginia Gregg, John Hiestand (scene setting announcer), Eddie Dunstedter (composer, presenter), David Victor (writer), Jackson Gillis (writer)
Host Introduction: "If you remember your history of early America, the name Ponce de León should strike an old chord. He was the rascal who went looking for the fountain of youth somewhere in Florida, but all he could find was orange juice. Which may have helped, but not enough. All of which adds up to really nothing except that the heavy in our Let George Do It adventure is a character named 'Ponce, the Lion' and from my vantage point he seems to be quite a character. But suppose I let old buster here tell you all about old Ponce."
Opening Line Introduction: "Personal notice: Danger is my stock in trade. If the job's too tough for you to handle, you got a job for me, George Valentine. Write full details."
First Line: "Dear Mr. Valentine, I believe that Honolulu has been called the melting pot of the Pacific. Well little town of Baja Junction could very likely be the boiling pot, but the weather can't prevent our maintaining a pleasant peaceful forward-looking town, that is for the past two years. Tomorrow it will all change. Tomorrow our town will boil in quite a different way unless someone like yourself can stop it. I was given your name by Fay Minahand who lives here, but please report direct to me just as soon as you can. You see Baja Junction is about to receive back its most disturbing citizen, a man named Ponce, The Lion. Sincerely, J.H. Frankel, Director of the Baja Junction Trade Relations Club."

Title: Big Brother
Description: Dove is such a nice girl with a brain like a sack of hammers, really? Every man thinks he's her big brother. There's some evidence that perhaps a blackmail scheme is afoot, perhaps some Photoshop work. Some hi tech "camera in the cab meter" does it every time.
Credits: Not Available on recording. Robert "Bob" Bailey, Virginia Gregg, Gerald Mohr as Lou Mendel and doubles as the cab driver in the closing scene, Ken Christy as Lt. Johnson, John Hiestand (scene setting announcer), Eddie Dunstedter (composer, presenter), David Victor (writer), Jackson Gillis (writer)
Host Introduction: "Say, I wonder if you like Runyonesque characters like I do. You know Harry the Horse, Nicely Nicely Johnson and all the rest. But don't get me wrong, this is not a Runyon story but a Let George Do It adventure. However, there is a character called Lou Mendel in this little tale that must have associated with the boys. Because you will see that plenty of Broadway has rubbed off on Lou. On top of that the boy's got trouble, so much so that even his trouble has trouble which is bad. So what is to do? Get in touch with George Valentine, which he does."
Opening Line Introduction: "Personal notice: Danger is my stock in trade. If the job's too tough for you to handle, you got a job for me, George Valentine. Write full details."
First Line: "My dear Mr. Valentine, my name is Lou Mendel, I own a night club, the club Top Hat, which I'm sure if you've ever been there you'll admit is a very high class place. It's not the type place where we have any trouble and everything is strictly above the board, which is where you fit into the picture puzzle Mr. Valentine. There is this girl whose name is Dove on account of she can't dance but I like to be big hearted. But as of to date, my big heart has got me nothing but a blow on the head. This is the essence of the puzzle. Who hit me? Even more important is what about Dove. She is somehow in the middle of the trouble and for such a nice girl I don't like it. Oh yes, this is a lot more than just what you may be thinking because poor little Dove you understand, looks upon me as her big brother."

Host Introduction: "Say, you all set for another visit with Valentine? I hope so, 'cause as always, we have what I think is a real peachy little bit of mayhem in store for you.

Credits: Robert "Bob" Bailey, Virginia Gregg, Ken Christy as Lt. Johnson, William Conrad as the Captain, Eddie Dunstedter (composer, conductor), Don Clark (director), David Victor (writer), Jackson Gillis (writer).
Host Introduction: "Well, it's time to batten down the hatches again, because here comes George Valentine. You must know George by now. He's the fellow who makes trouble to keep you out of it. Now, perhaps that doesn't make too much sense, but, after all, what does in this day and time? So I just want you to be content with the fact that this is 'Let George Do It' and let the chips fall where they may."
Opening Line Introduction: "Personal notice: Danger is my stock in trade. If the job's too tough for you to handle, you got a job for me, George Valentine. Write full details."
First Line: "Dear Mr. Valentine, its one thing to be the keeper of your brother; it's quite another to be the keeper of your brother-in-law. Particularly one that you haven't met, that you don't want to meet, that you wish would stay in South America where he belongs, and that shouldn't have married your sister in theFirst place. When my sister wrote that she was meeting her husband's ship here in town, naturally I insisted that they be my guests. But, Mr. Valentine, the price of hospitality seems to run high. No sooner had I put the welcome mat out than the word must have got round. The X must be on my doorstep because now my house is being watched. I am being watched. Well, Mr. Valentine, I am not an excavation, and I have no intention of letting brotherly love dig me into any sort of premature grave. Sincerely, Franklin J. Scott"

A script dated 51/07/20 is "The Man from Jaune Cache." It is listed in the David Victor Papers, 1938-1964, and can't be associated with a broadcast date. It seemed logical to assign this episode to this previously unknown title slot. There is an <aka> announced as "The Man from French Guiana" in the HSG recordings. The spoken word does not take precedence over the script title in this specific instance because the HSG recording is a mix of original and new work. Further, in the spoken word reference, Jaune Cache is identified as a city in French Guiana.

Shorty's the type of fellow who, if he hasn't got a problem, he goes out and finds one. Right now he's just returned from a most successful hunting trip. And boy, has he got a beaut. [Music]…"

Now I suppose you could say it's none of my business why a good customer and friend like that should just up and disappear, but then again, what kind of human being would that make you. Suppose he's in troub…suppose he needs help. Well, Mr. Valentine, I found something yesterday in a hockshop that scares the daylights out of me. Oh, Terry Cable's in trouble all right.

Title: Drop Dead
Description: A telephone call from Jerry Huel leads George and Brooksie to a waterfront hotel where they meet Captain Charlie, Limey and a parrot that keeps saying "Drop Dead." Jerry tells George that the previous owner was found dead in the alley. George returns to the hotel only to find Limey dead. Another death occurs. George investigates to find out what the parrot has to do with the deaths.
Credits: Robert "Bob" Bailey, Virginia Gregg, Ken Christy as Lt. Johnson, David Victor and Jackson Gillis (writers), Eddie Dunstedter (Music).
Host Introduction: "[Music] "A few years ago a new slogan or slang expression was thrush on the vocabulary of the American public. You remember it. It came in very handy when the wife wanted you to clean out the attic; or when your brother-in-law put the bite on you for a ten spot. It was, quote, Drop Dead, unquote. Of course it never did you any good, but it was better than "twenty-three skidoo, or "Go jump in the lake." If you listen carefully, you may get some tips on how to use the expression with more effective results. It all started with a phone call at George Valentine's office by a little fellow who was just full of questions. Oh, let's see if George has any of the answers."
Opening Line Introduction: "Personal notice: Danger is my stock in trade. If the job's too tough for you to handle, you got a job for me, George Valentine. Write full details."
First Line: [man on phone] "Don't you want a story?" [George] "Hold it, will you, who's this?" [man on phone] "Jerry Huel, I said. I'm a writer and I have a story." [George] "Well, this is George Valentine and I'm not a publisher." [man on phone] "Please listen to me. You've got to meet me right away, Captain Charlie's Neptune Place, the old waterfront district." [George] "The Captain's whose, what?" [man on phone] "I live here, it's an old hotel. I'm collecting material. But this particular story, I'm afraid I don't know how it ends. And that's why I need you." [George] "Sounds to me like it goes around in a circle." [man on phone] "I want to be there when it ends, don't you understand. That's why I'm calling you instead of the police." [George] "Police? What kind of a story is it?" [man on phone] "Well, it concerns a mysterious stranger and a seaman who chews tobacco and mostly, of course, the parrot." [George] "The what?" [man on phone] "The parrot, a green and orange parrot. Ordinarily I don't like parrots myself, such mangy squatting creatures, but Captain Charlie, of course, well he…" [George] "A green and orange parrot? Now look friend…" [man on phone] "Meet me in fifteen minutes at the foot of Tide Street. Please. You don't want anyone else to get their hands on this story, do you?" [Music]

Host Introduction: "Say, did you ever hear of a fearless clown? Well just in case you haven't, that's the title of our Let George Do It adventure. Now you're probably wondering what a clown has to fear in the first place, unless maybe it's a nasty elephant. Well I know is that a very nervous girl is most concerned about a certain clown and she's telling George Valentine all about it."
Opening Line Introduction: "Personal notice: Danger is my stock in trade. If the job's too tough for you to handle, you got a job for me, George Valentine. Write full details."
First Line: "Dear Mr. Valentine, I'm sure you've heard of Fofo, the Fearless Clown. Maybe you've already seen his circus before, but it's here in town opening tonight with an all-new show. And if he's ever scared you with his snake or, or made you laugh with his crazy tumbling and I'll bet like everybody else you must have thought he's a wonderful person, but I know that he's not. In fact, if Fofo should happen to die, I am the person who killed him. What I mean is, Mr. Valentine, I've already practically confessed to his murder. It's your job to keep the most horrible man in the world alive. Sincerely, Relita. P.S. I'm the girl in the strawberry colored tights."

Host Introduction: "You've all heard the expression, 'beware of Greek bearing gifts.' In case it slipped your mind, a fellow by the name of Virgil said that some two thousand years ago. But as far as George Valentine is concerned, he could just as well have said it today. Wanna know why? Well suppose you listen to our Let George Do It adventure entitled 'Deal Me Out and I'll Deal You In.'"

First Line: "(With a thick accent) Dear Mr. Valentines, now is your chance to be rich. I am a stranger in town and you should take me. Percentage cost plus straight commission of the goods, I will pay whatever you like, whatever. And why? Because five private detectives I am hiring with what? No satisfactions. Mr. Valentines, a young friend of mine is having a most desperate situation and if you can give satisfactions, than I deal you in. The riches are yours.

Credits: Robert "Bob" Bailey, Virginia Gregg, Eddie Dunstedter (composer, conductor), David Victor (writer), Jackson Gillis (writer).
Host Introduction: "Well, y'all set for another visit with Valentine? Ready or not, here he comes, and is he loaded... Now, uh, don't get me wrong. I don't mean in the true sense of the vernacular, nor is he toting a Tommy Gun. He's just up to his chin in bliss. You known why? He's going on a vacation. Now whether you think this is the proper time of year to take a vacation, or whether you think he deserves one, is of no consequence to George. He just got tired of letting George do it, packed Brooksie and his bags into the car, and took off for his favorite seaside spot. Now, at first glance, this may look a little on the dull side, but stick around. It's only the beginning."
Opening Line Introduction: "Personal notice: Danger is my stock in trade. If the job's too tough for you to handle, you got a job for me, George Valentine. Write full details."
First Line: [Brooksie] Fish stew... George, are you sure this is the right road? It's so dark, all I can see is fog and sand... [George] Yeah, I know, and they're both the same color. Now, don't worry. I can tell them apart. I tell you Brooksie, the Italians call it ciapino, and the French call it bouillabaisse, but this stuff here tastes so much better than what they... [Brooksie] I know, and Miss Gallagher just calls it fish stew. You've only told me about it ten times. [George] Well, now look. Everybody else in the world gets a vacation. Why can't I?

Credits: Robert "Bob" Bailey, Virginia Gregg, Eddie Dunstedter (composer, conductor), David Victor (writer), Jackson Gillis (writer).
Host Introduction: "Greetings as always, mystery lover. Time for another visit with Valentine. I think our menu for mayhem is particularly enticing this adventure. It's called "The Blue Plate Special", and it was created especially for those of you who are trying to lose a few pounds. You see, it doesn't contain a single protein, or calorie, or even a vitamin for that matter. Just a couple of fat heads, which you should be able to digest very easily. Now, if you'll take your elbows off the table, I'll tell the chef to commence serving."
Opening Line Introduction: "Personal notice: Danger is my stock in trade. If the job's too tough for you to handle, you got a job for me, George Valentine. Write full details."
First Line: [Josh] How much did you say?! [Sam] Uh, uh, uh... What's that, Josh? [Josh] I said, "How much did you say?!" [Sam] Oh... Well... Uh... $1.75 is what I said, but, uh, you know me... [Josh] Yes, Sam. I know you. [Sam] Been in the family a long time, I suppose. Must have meant a good deal to your dear old mother, rest her soul. [Josh] How much, I ask you! [Sam] Uh, uh, uh, of course, with you boys it's a little different, but I want you to understand that nothing would make me prouder than to do business with the Higby family... [Josh] Never mind that old maid business of yours! [Sam] ...but I mean, uh, uh, uh... Well, what did I say? $2.50? Was that what I said? Oh sure, Josh. I'd be glad to pay you, uh, uh, $3.00? [Josh] $3.00 you'd pay me for that plate! [Sam] No, Josh, no! [Josh] Well, for $3.00, I'd break it over your head! Do you hear me?!... [Sam] "Dear Mr. Valentine, You've got to come to Higby Corners before something terrible happens! Before I'm ruined! Mr. Valentine, I want you to... to steal a plate! Yours truly, Sam Ferris."
