Dir: Monty Banks
Starring: George Formby and Florence Desmond
A chimney sweep from Wigan dreams of winning the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy
Although George Formby had already made two moderately successful films, No Limit was the film that put him on the road to stardom. This classic musical comedy is still regarded as one of his best and funniest, featuring good songs and numerous stunts. Most of the film was shot on location on the Isle of Man where there are brief glimpses of the Douglas horse-drawn trams in a couple of scenes. However, one real train does appear early on in the form of a reversed stock shot of a ‘Royal Scot’ passing through the Lune Gorge.
