The British Fake's Progess is one of a handful of attempts during the talkie era to revive the good old days of silent pictures. Nary a word is spoken by stars Lou Cass and Harry Nova, cast respectively as a meek clerk and a brash con man. As our heroes embark on one get-rich-quick scheme after another, their every move is interpreted and commented upon by the off-screen voices of Harry Secombe and Humphrey Lestocq. Produced independently, Fake's Progress did not serve as the vanguard of a series of non-talking talkies. Though the stars and situations are fitfully amusing, the protracted silent stretches make the film seem far longer than its 52 minutes.
