Man At The Top: High Stakes (ITV 14 Aug 1972, Susan Littler)

Published

on


In High Stakes Joe is back once more in his old stomping ground to try and reach a compromise on a major strike but behind the scenes wheels are turning, it seems that Abe and a few of his business colleagues (including old oppo Charlie Armitage) think Joe has what it takes to become the parlimentary candidate for Warley in an up coming by election, not only would this give the businessmen more power it would also rise Joe even higher. Naturally he is keen!

Meanwhile on the strike front, he discovers that the key to solving it lies with persuading his son Harry’s girlfriend (who just happens to be the daughter of the man able to end the strike) to dump him.

Man At The Top is entering it’s final phase here, a return of Joe to his roots for good, you get the impression that this could well just be a stepping stone to a seat on the government for him. Which would in actual fact be quite fitting for someone as ruthless as Joe! Watch out for Susan Littler who has a small role here as a hot pants wearing hostess at Charlie’s casino, she is probably best known for playing Viv Nicholson in the Play For Today Spend Spend Spend.

classic quote
“Deputy Chairman of one of the biggest companies in the country, you’ve come a long way from Doveton.”
