The fifth of George Wallace's films, Gone To The Dogs
, followed fairly closely the formula of his previous release, Let George Do It
(1938). As with that film, Ken G. Hall included a romantic sub-plot, along with several song and dance sequences and self-contained comedy routines. Two of the songs incorporated into the narrative for Gone To The Dogs
were the Wallace composition 'We'll Build A Little Home,' and 'Gone to the Dogs' (music by Henry Kripps with lyrics by Harry Allen). The Brisbane Courier
says of these attempts at musical comedy, one "scene is good enough in itself, but it goes astray because it is introduced abruptly and unreasonably" (21 August 1939, p.4).
