Synopsis: The show business career of George Formby spanned forty years, beginning in 1921 and lasting until his death in 1961. During that period he appeared in 21 hit films, made over 230 records, and made hundreds of stage performances. This collection showcases some of his finest moments on the big screen. 'No Limit' (1935) was Formby's first major film role after leaving the music halls. Assistant chimney sweep George Shuttleworth (Formby) is laughed at by his friends when he dreams of winning the Isle of Man's TT Motor Cycle Race.

In 'I See Ice' (1938), George Bright (Formby) is a photographer's assistant who dreams of making it big, but his attempts to obtain a scoop only result in him getting the sack.
