The Lambeth Walk is a 1939 British musical comedy film directed by Albert de Courville and starring Lupino Lane, Sally Gray and Seymour Hicks.[1] It was an adaptation of the 1937 musical Me and My Girl, and was released under that title in the U.S. The film takes its British title from the play's best known song The Lambeth Walk. The star of the musical, Lupino Lane, reprised his lead role in the film.[2]


Bill Snibson, a chancer from Lambeth Walk in South London, is informed that he has been discovered to be the long-lost heir to a title and castle which he can claim provided he is able to convince his new relations that he has enough aristocratic bearing. Things soon begin to go awry however, particularly when Sally, Bill's girlfriend from Lambeth, turns up.
