Storyline

Albert Steptoe and his son Harold are junk dealers, complete with horse and cart to tour the neighbourhood. They also live amicably together at the junk yard. Always on the lookout for ways to improve his lot, Harold invests his father's life savings in a greyhound who is almost blind and can't see the hare. When the dog loses a race and Harold has to pay off the debt, he comes up with another bright idea. Collect his father's life insurance. To do this his father must pretend to be dead.

Macabre oddity
19 January 2000 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Albert and Harold Steptoe return to the big screen in another adventure that could well have spanned a shorter television episode. As always Harold needs money and his decision to claim the life insurance of his father before he has died leads to a very odd and surreal set of events. Odd to say the least, the finale includes a series of macabre but funny misadventures such as being trapped inside a coffin? Top marks for humour with the training of the greyhound in earlier scenes but woeful for the scenes with Diana Dors and also wooden the rag and bone fraternity. Another 1970s transition that does not quite make it. The British series was far more carefully written and beautifully acted by the two main players and is consequently highly recommended.
