| Detective Inspector Steptoe
One of the Scotland Yard series of short films that were part of the cinema experience in the 50's and 50's, I remember them well a part of history sadly missing these days. While my father was away on business my mother would meet me from school with sandwiches and bottles of pop for us to consume as we sat in the front row of the circle of the ABC or the Odeon to see that weeks top film.

Anyway I digress, whilst I don't remember this particular one I do the series and this is one of the better ones that has been re run on Talking Pictures recently. I enjoy spotting future big stars sometimes in very minor roles. This one features a pre Harold Steptoe before he quits the police for the family business in Oil Drum Lane. Good to see him doing something else, even with the dodgy Scottish accent, shame this Shakespearean actor couldn't escape from the Steptoe image although he did fit that accent better than this one.

Also look out for a young, barely speaking Peter Bowles. Enjoyable.
