Four classic episodes with the world's most famous rag and bone men: "The Desperate Hours," "Come Dancing," "Upstairs Downstairs, Upstairs Downstairs," and "A Star Is Born." Two junk men and a junk-cart, bonded by blood, yoked by emotional blackmail and tied by the reins of Hercules the horse. Albert, a conniving old father clinging to an awesome jumble of useless bric-a-brac and to an exasperated son. Harold, a shackled son full of indistinct ambition for an out-of-reach life and forever on the fringe of a flirt with a passing 'bird.' Peddling authentic entertainment, they spark laughs off each other like flint off an old iron. Shining gems amongst the rag and bones.
