Celebrated British music-hall entertainer Lupino Lane was both star and director of No Lady. Lane plays a henpecked husband who gets more than he bargained for when he goes on holiday in Blackpool. Before he can even get his bearings, our hero is mixed up with nest of foreign spies, determined to sabotage a British air show. Virtually every gag in the film was lifted from one of Lane's old 2-reelers, including the ancient wheeze about a Scotchman's purse yielding a moth. Is it any wonder that Lupino Lane eventually abandoned films in favor of "live" performances before large and appreciative crowds?
