This movie was made in 1935 when Formby was at the height of his fame in the British melody halls. This was Formby's third movie and also one of his most fondly remembered. He plays George Shuttleworth (speed demon), Who has a dream of riding his motorbike in the Isle Of Boy TT races. It is a unbelievable 80 mins of nostalgic fun as George gets into many scrapes on the method and manages to fit in a several songs while plucking his Ukelele. It is also a timely reminder of a Britain which (sadly) no longer exists. So sit back and reminisce but most of all enjoy.
No Limit was George's first large league film, his 4th overall. The boss of ATP Basil Dean had wanted to search a Northern entertainer to rival Gracie Fields; when his scouts announced the finding of George Formby for him he told "But he's dead", thinking of George's popular Dad who had died in 1922. But nevertheless, Formby Jr. probably inevitably became a star, the largest in Britain between 1938-1945 he came along at just the right time when the public wanted easy nice hearted escapism. The only purpose easy nice hearted escapism serves today for film-makers is to give themselves and the public something to sneer at.Gormless tiny boy George Shuttleworth wants to take part in and victory the annual motorcycle TT Races on t'Isle of Man, gets there penniless but with Florence Desmond rooting for him, and an assortment of baddies led by nasty Jack Hobbs out to stop him by foul means. Songs: Riding In The TT Races (in the crowded railway coach), Riding Around On A Rainbow (the lively hit of the movie by Flo to Beryl's disgust - on the IOM ferry), In A Tiny Wigan Garden (an advance warning for serious people: black-faced on the beach at Douglas), I'm Walking Your Method (as a romantic duet in the "moonlight"). Favorite bits: the studio shots of George's back yard at Slagdyke; the zone shots of the course and backgrounds on the Isle of Man; grandfather Edward Rigby's superbly indignant performance; the TT race scenes and climax (due to the heat and number of re-takes George now did collapse at the finish). The local stunt riders apparently went on strike successfully for a short while after they found out that director Monte Banks was paying the donkey and his owner (who had smaller bit parts) more than them!A landmark movie with the Formby Formula virtually in place, it wouldn't really be changed actually for the next 10 years.
What a jump up in quality No Limit is from George's first 2 movies ("Boots!, Boots!" and "Off The Dole") More lavishly produced, more of a story, more of a drama, more of a genuine laugh.More of a proper movie really (instead of the disjointed bits of skits and sketches of the previous films) professionally directed by Monty Banks (Gracie Fields husband) I should imagine going to see this in the cinemas in 1936 and having a "reet rollikin nice laff" George singing "Riding in the TT Races" to a carriage full of smiley fat faces gives a tiny tug on the satisfied string in your heart.The TT race finale is a thrills and spills rompalong (how close the dangerously careering bicycles are to the crowd around would give the show day Health & Security police kittens) It all ends predictably and happily ever after.I'd pick a rainy Sunday afternoon to watch this film, cuddled up on the sofa, drinking pots of tea, munching Eccles cakes.
