Let George Do It!

One of British comedian George Formby's most successful films, in this war-time musical he plays ukelele-ist George Hepplewhite who gets on a boat thinking he's on his way to Blackpool, but he winds up in Norway instead. There he is mistaken for another ukelele player altogether, and the desk clerk (Phyllis Calvert) thinks he is a fellow British undercover agent. Together they manage to find and break a Nazi code, while getting a few choice musical numbers as well.
