The first film 'Steptoe and Son' is not bad but is nothing really special either, the trouble is that the storyline just does not feel like Steptoe and Son, being a kind of tragic comedy and an emotional rollercoster that just does not fit the characters.
The story deals with the consequences of Harold getting married to a stripper whom Albert doesn't approve of and ends up with the old man tagging along for the honeymoon, after the inevitable split up a baby is left on their doorstep, Harold of course assumes that the kid is his and is horrifed when the baby is taken back.
It is not really funny at all and doesn't really raise a smile let alone a laugh and is probably Galton and Simpson's weakest work on Steptoe and Son.
The good point that keeps me watching is the always superb performances of Wilfrid Brambel and Harry H Corbett and that alone lifts this very average film to a higher level.
Steptoe and Son Ride Again is vastly superior and feels like the series that we all know and love, the jump in quality from the first film is remarkable and it seems as if the lessons were learned in that most people don't want the format of something so good meddling with.
The film is about one of Harold's get-rich-quick schemes and buys a greyhound from the Godfather of Shepherds Bush, Frankie Barrow, played brilliantly as he was in the TV series by Henry Woolf, this provides a continuity link to the series that was sadly missing from the first film.Read more ›
