British Silent film comedian Lupino Lane charms continuously in this bit-o-fluff from the stage hit Me And My Gal. A musical farce in which spry little Cockney Lane inherits a title, an ancestral castle and a blue-blooded family. The snobby family wants him to marry high; a cousin played vampishly by Enid Stamp Taylor, but he has down to earth love for cute but lowly Sally Gray. Although slow to get started, like most winning British humor, colonials will get with it if patient. The peak is a dinner party where the poor teach the rich how to party via doing the Lambeth Walk that led to our dancing out of the theatre! Thank god for film festivals like this one that make rare films like this available and the folks who provide comments to IMDB for others to share. Please support the IMDB and early film festivals!
