Let George Do It
Getting out of the service with big ideas and little cash, George Valentine rented an office and ran a newspaper ad - "If the job's too tough for you to handle, you got a job for me. Write full details." The show starred Bob Bailey as George and Frances Robinson as his girl Claire, and ran from 1946 to 1954.
