Lanky, buck-toothed British musical film star who was at the height of his fame during the Second World War. He portrayed a happy-go-lucky nasal-voiced banjo player (little known factoid: he actually played a hybrid of a banjo and a ukelele called a banjolele). He is generally remembered for the songs When I'm Cleaning Windows and I'm Leaning on a Lamppost (At the corner of the street) (in case a certain little lady comes by) (oh me, oh my, etc.)

George's catchphrase was "It's turned out nice again". He was used to entertain the troops. In one of his films he parachutes onto the podium at a Nazi rally and K.O.s Hitler.
