Dir: Monty Banks
(UK 1935, 80mins)
Ideal Sunday afternoon entertainment comes in the form of George Formby’s third feature, a rollicking yomp around the Isle of Man’s TT Races. A chimney sweep from Wigan with a home-made bike – lovely checkerboard creation the Shuttleworth Snap – George unexpectedly finds himself leading the pack and doing record times when his brakes fail. Scrapes ensue, as well as the inevitable ukelele moments and some great musical numbers with comedienne Florence Desmond. A rose-tinted snapshot of 30s Britain, No Limit is still screened every year at the TT Races.
