Episode Summary

EDIT
The Curse of Steptoe
AIRED:
The huge success of Steptoe and Son belied the difficult relationship between the show's stars, Harry H. Corbett and Wilfred Brambell. Off-screen, Corbett's marriage was in trouble, while Brambell, a homosexual, was arrested for importuning. When Brambell quits the show to star on Broadway, Corbett - now typecast - looks forward to the show's new dynamic without Brambell. But the failure of Brambell's Broadway show leads to his return.moreless
