Life after Steptoe - In Pictures

Postby PhilGlass » Thu Oct 01, 2009 2:07 pm

Hi everyone!

Having a clear out of the old hard drive, found a few screenshots of things in my collection, I thought you might enjoy these!

Some you may have seen before, some you may not. Just a bit of fun!

Also is a colour shot from 'Robbery With Violence' (I dont have this in colour before you ask!!'

From the Steptoe Ajax Ad, filmed in Australia in 1977

Wilfrid Brambell in 'All Creatures Great and Small'

Harry as himself, as a guest on 'Joker's Wild'
Image

Wilfrid Brambell in "Death and Transfiguration" in 1984, from "The Terence Davies Trilogy"

Harry in 'The Plank'

Wilfrid plays 'Alice B. Toklas' in the Swedish film 'Picassos Aventyr' - this was only released in Sweden. One of Wilfrid's finest performances.

Harry in 'Potter', starring Arthur Lowe.

Hope you like them!

What a FANTASTIC post.

I especially like the colour photo of Robbery with Violence.

The Steptoe book published a few years ago also had a colour image from A Winter's Tale.

I bet the BBC has loads of them, they could have put them as extras on the DVD's to make up for their enormous cock-up of losing the originals.

Tell me about it!! These colour shots are the reason they should NOT hand colour the episodes which has been rumoured - anyone who's seen the Laurel and Hardy's will no doubt vouch for that. It won't look right!

But the first part of a telerecording of 'A Winters Tale' is now in their archives with the colour track on it, so maybe we'll see the orignal one day...

I have a few more pics which I'll put up asap, as making it known what good careers they had away from Steptoe is important to me. And it's a bit of fun!!

Archie...

Yes, he is in an episode from series 2 called 'A Dog's Life', recently repeated on a UK digital channel.

He displays his comedy talent in two long scenes in which he steals the whole show!

You may recognise Bernard Cribbins in the picassos aventyr pic!!

But of those I have shown (just a fraction of his 30yr career) Picassos Aventyr is his best performance.

Hi Steve

Glad you found it of interest. It is amazing that you only know him from 'Carry On Screaming' - for both of these men, Steptoe and Son was just a part of their long careers.

Harry's last ever piece was 'Tales of The Unexpected' and wilfs was 'Sword of The Valiant', I will get shots of both of these up for you.

In Shoestring, Harry looks older because he still has the scars visible from a car accident he had. But it actually adds to the character he plays (who is not a nice piece of work!)

After Steptoe, I must say Wilfrid had the most varied and most active career (as he did before hand!). Harry seemed to feel down at only getting guest appearances and seemed to be chasing that starring role - his work was very mainstream. Wilf played in some very unorthodox and strange roles, happy to be the guest star - this meant on a pro rate he probably got paid more, spent a few mornings in the studio and was in the pub by lunchtime!!

A lot of their films are on commercial release, have a look in the imdb. You'll be amazed what they crop up in!!

Hey, I like Willy's style!!

As this has proven more popular than I thought it would, here are a few more...

Harry in an episode of 'Shoestring' in 1979...
Image

Wilf in his LAST EVER on-screen performance - "Sword of The Valiant", staring Miles o'keefe and Sean Connery...
Image

And Harry in his second last ever appearance... VERY rare... The 1981 Dick Emery Xmas special 'For Whom The Jingle Bells Toll'

I remember Harry was in 'Silver Dream Racer' a film starring David Essex as a motorbike racer.

Harry was the garage storeman.

Steve...

Never noticed that but now you mention it!!

Here's another one as you have shown an interest...

Harry's LAST EVER appearance, broadcast after his untimely death. An episode of "Tales of The Unexpected" called The Moles.

That also looks like Fulton Mackay in that last pic. Sad to know Harry didnt see it broadcast.

Steve...

Yes, that's Fulton Porridge MacKay. Also in that episode was Bill Owen who went on to be known as Compo in 'Last Of The Summer Wine'.

Here are some PRE-STEPTOE pictures...

In 1954, one of Wilf's earliest performances was in a BBC production of George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty Four.

Unusually, Wilf played 2 parts, showing what a great diverse character actor he was. Here as his two roles as 'Old Man' (which was quite a part) and 'Thin Prisoner'.

Once again Phil thanks for sharing these images on the site.

As a very interesting point when Willy was playing the Old MAN the the production of 1984 he was only in his early 40's
