A brunette wig is no camouflage for Sabrina in scenes from RAMSBOTTOM RIDES AGAIN (Jack Hylton Film Productions) '66' Oct 57

With grateful thanks again to Richard Koper, we have our first still from Ramsbottom... Thanks, Richard! (7 Sept 07)

Ramsbottom Rides Again

The picture comes from Maurice Speed’s “Film Review 1956-1957”.

The original text with this picture reads: “Waiter Arthur Askey tries to tempt guest Sabrina while her escort, Campbell Singer, visibly disapproves of his manner in this scene from the British Lion film Ramsbottom Rides Again.”


A review from Picturegoer, July 28, 1956

RAMSBOTTOM RIDES AGAIN ***

IT'S corny; it's rowdy; it's erratic; it's over-boisterous and under-directed. If you asked me why I laughed so hard, I wouldn't be able to tell you. But I did. And I think you will, too.
The basic gag stems from the idea of pint-sized Arthur Askey selling up the home pub and dragging his family off to Canada to inherit the property left by his illustrious grandfather, Wild Bill Ramsbottom.
Once there, he dons a Stetson two sizes too large for him and gets hopelessly involved with a tough hombre (Sidney James), an Indian chief (Jerry Desmonde - no less) and the local law (Frankie Vaughan). Mad? Of course. But so good-humoured. Askey lords it cleverly over his partners in comedy: Shani Wallis (as his daughter), Glenn Melvyn (as his gormless buddy) and Anthea Askey, as a tough Western gal. Sabrina, too, wanders through, practically wordless, now and then. But you barely notice her!

Sabrina in Ramsbottom Rides Againweb-sized, reasonable quality WMV Ramsbottom version (8M).

Sabrina in Ramsbottom Rides AgainVIP full-screen-sized DivX Ramsbottom B.O.O.B.S. version - all 51 Megabytes' worth!

The quality of the video is mediocre, but considering that its very existence was long doubted, some Sabrina is better than no Sabrina. It has been recorded from TV onto VHS, dubbed to DVD and then converted to WMV and DivX. Don't expect HDMI quality!

And if ANYONE out there ever sees Ramsbottom Rides Again in their TV guide, run out and buy a High Definition Hard Disk Recorder, record the movie in HD mode and report to me AT ONCE!

23 Jan 2009 - Now, for the first time on any internet, we are proud to present screenshots of Sabrina from Ramsbottom Rides Again.

Note that Sabrina shows her great acting range by appearing in not one, but TWO roles - a beauty and an indian - and speaks TWICE: "Soup" and "And you were saying".
