Overview

Leonard Rossiter stars in the madcap British farce Rising Damp, as Rupert Rigsby, the bigoted and conniving landlord of a dingy flophouse in an unspecified English city. Rupert must contend on a daily basis with a motley group of tenants, including the nymphomaniacal spinster Ruth Jones (Frances de la Tour); Philip (Don Warrington), a black med student who insists that he is actually an African prince with an entire harem of wives; wet-behind-the-ears art student John (Christopher Strauli); and the dapper gold digger Seymour (Denholm Elliott). This film was actually a theatrical spin-off of a U.K. television series that ran from 1974 to 1978; Richard Beckinsale (father of Kate) had a key role in the original series but died in 1979, hence his absence from the movie.
