The Deputy from Yorkshire
22 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

Watching Ramsbottom Rides Again which is a film in bad need of restoration I was having a lot of trouble following the Yorkshire speech pattern of the cast. Particularly that of music hall performer Albert Askey. In fact the only time that things were clear was when Frankie Vaughn and Shani Wallis made some nice music.

Askey is a Yorkshire pub owner who inherits a pub in western Canada where apparently things are as wild as in the Old West. If it weren't for all the British accents this could have been Roy Rogers Republic western.

With pub ownership comes the job of deputy sheriff and Askey has to face the local villain played by Sid James. Sid wants control of the saloon Askey has and he's got more than a hankering for the deputy's job.

There's a lengthy sequence involving Askey and his beanpole sidekick Glenn Melvyn having to stow away on the ship over to Canada because they don't have enough money for passage for the whole family. Some funny moments there and with a fixed card game and prying moosehead between Askey and James.

If the film is restored maybe subtitles are in order.
