Ketty Lester without Love Letters
16 December 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Infernal Triangle" was the 14th episode to be a direct adaptation from its British counterpart STEPTOE AND SON. Fred is in love again, now engaged to a new woman that he met over a beer in a bar just a few weeks before. Lamont promises to be nicer to her than he's been to 'The Barracuda,' waiting to meet her prior to dinner with Fred. Judy Edwards (Ketty Lester) turns out to be an old girlfriend of Lamont's, who hasn't seen him in ten years, his love letters to her apparently sabotaged by her disapproving mother. She got married, had two children, then got divorced, and thinks that the 65 year old Fred is only 59. Lamont asks her to marry him instead, being only five years younger than her, realizing how difficult it would be to hide their relationship if she actually became his stepmother: "the first time you came upstairs to tuck me in, he'd know something was wrong!" It's Fred's turn to be surprised when his son admits that he and Judy are lovers: "but, I wasn't gone but five minutes!" Ketty Lester had enjoyed a Top Ten hit with 1962's "Love Letters (Straight from Your Heart)," but found more success as an actress by the 70s, particularly as the pretty cab driver who falls victim to William Marshall's Blacula, presenting a frightening visage at the morgue.
