No Limit

In the summer of 1935 a camera crew from Associated Talking Pictures arrived in Douglas, Isle of Man to shoot a comedy using the famous TT races as a backdrop. The star was Florence Desmond, then at the pinnacle of her career, but it was a hitherto little known Lancashire comic called George Formby who stole the show and became a hit. The film was entitled 'No Limit' and the story revolved around an amateur mechanic who builds a motorbike and then rides to victory in the race.

The film was a smash at the box office and must have worked wonders for Manx tourism, and to this day the movie is endlessly screened in Douglas for the benefit of islanders and visitors alike. Stills from the comedy classic have now been reproduced on the latest set of stamps from the Isle of Man, a nostalgic tribute to a very popular comedian. The stamps capture the essence of the ukelele-playing comic with the toothy grin.
