His Lordship is a 1932 British musical comedy film directed by Michael Powell. It was made as a Quota quickie.
Cheerful Cockney Bert Gibbs inherits a title from his father and becomes Lord Thornton Heath. But then he meets up with movie star Ilya Myona and when his mother asks about her, Bert implies they are engaged. After some adventures with some dubious Russian types Bert's girl Lenina eventually wins him back.
His Lordship was declared to be "Missing, Believed Lost" by the British Film Institute, but a copy was subsequently found. It was put onto safety film and shown at the NFT in 2000. It proved popular with audiences as a camp classic.
