Enjoy the Lane Acrobatics
21 December 2017 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Lupino Lane directs (as Henry W. George) and stars in this funny slapstick farce. He's Adolphus Miggs, who's been writing his Rhapsody in Pink for three years. Through the usual assortment of pushing by leading lady Jean Denis (in her only screen appearance) and shenanigans, he's at a swank country party, mistaken for Lord Miggs, involved in a plot to steal a priceless necklace and indulge in his usual fine acrobatic pratfalls. I was particularly taken with the sand dance he does with his dog and one reel near the end, shot wild and slightly undercranked.

Alas, Lane's movie career wouldn't last much longer. The massive success of his next West End show, ME AND MY GIRL, would keep him busy for the rest of his career. Good for him.
