Just Say Cheese…
The earliest printed records of the expression are from the 1940s, in particular, this piece from the Texas newspaper The Big Spring Daily Herald, October 1943, titled “Need To Put On A Smile? Here’s How: Say, Cheese”
Now here’s something worth knowing. It’s a formula for smiling when you have your picture taken. It comes from former Ambassador Joseph E. Davies and is guaranteed to make you look pleasant no matter what you’re thinking.
Mr. Davies disclosed the formula while having his own picture taken on the set of his “Mission to Moscow.”
It’s simple. Just say “Cheese,” it’s an automatic smile. “I learned that from a politician,” Mr. Davies chuckled. “An astute politician, a very great politician. But, of course, I cannot tell you who he was…”
Ambassador Davies looked every inch the politician who took his own advice. His coy ‘I cannot tell you who it was’ was no doubt delivered with a wink, as Davies served under President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who fits his description perfectly well, as listeners in 1940s America would have been well aware.
The fact that the newspaper report presented Davies’ recipe as a novelty that its readers would previously be unfamiliar with does suggest that the phrase can’t be much earlier than 1943 in origin. It’s also reasonable to speculate that Roosevelt was the original source.
