Toilet

Postby steve sheffield » Fri Apr 22, 2011 9:57 pm

Just watching the film Steptoe and son 1972 (stripper) and Harold decides to work all hours under the sun to send young jeremy to Eton, he works as a paper boy and we also see him as a lavatory attendant. The lavatory in the scene looks identical to the one used in Carry on Screaming also starring Harry H Corbett !
Coincidence?

the exterior shots of Dan Dann's Hocombe Park lavvy may actually be Black Park, or at least that's what Carry On Screaming dvd commentary host Robert Ross suggests, guests Fenella Fielding and Angela Douglas both agree. the interior shots (where Charles Hawtrey is drowned in a bog lol) are a set.
just guessing here, but the interior shot of the lavvy where Harold earns extra cash is almost certainly an actual location. besides the extreme aging of stalls we can see the ceiling and light fixtures. they may have replaced the florescent bulbs with special bright ones to permit filming, much in the same way George Romero's Dawn of the Dead zombie shopping mall was illuminated. but you're right, they do look similar.

It sounded like Arthur who was the "Poofy old drag act" that done the masterful line :)

I saw a documentary once about public toilets - no kidding :shock:

One which looks like the one in the movie had see through cisterns with goldfish in them :o

Quite a lot of scenes in Steptoe take place in, or center around the loo, so it’s a legitimate subject. And to pretend bodily functions don't happen would be a little absurd. A favorite “toilet” scene, Albert is trapped inside the loo and while he waits for Harold to get home, to avoid boredom he starts reading bits of newspaper, one of which describes a naughty bishop in a brothel raid. But when he gets to the good bit, the pages run out. Hilarious :o

Correction: it wasn’t a bishop in a brothel raid, it was a vicar in a tryst with a foreign domestic in a caravan.
"'I was just teaching her English’ he said.” (Crossed Swords). Enter Constable Dixon of Dock Green....
“Don’t try to be funny with me sir, I know you can’t play billiards in a caravan.” :roll:
