Step Lively, Jeeves! Reviews:

When a couple of swindlers convince Jeeves, that impeccable gentleman's gentleman, that he is the long-lost heir to the fortune of Sir Francis Drake, he embarks with them to Fresh York, where he is instantly embroiled with bank robbers & mobsters. To receive yourself out of this pickle, you'll need to STEP LIVELY, JEEVES!In this, the second of two Jeeves movies (following THANK YOU, JEEVES! - 1936), Arthur Treacher once again has a field day as the world's most popular butler. He is everytime nice fun, with his icy stare & nasal tones. Too terrible the plot doesn't give us more of him. With three sets of crooks & a couple of snoopy reporters, Jeeves sometimes gets lost in the proceedings.This is also a various Jeeves from the one created by Sir P. G. Wodehouse. Bertie Wooster is nowhere to be seen, nor is he even mentioned. Also, the Film Jeeves is much too easy duped by the criminals - the Literary Jeeves would have sent the fellows packing with a flea in their ear. The Film Jeeves gets falling-down drunk, unthinkable for his Literary Counterpart. The Film Jeeves also claims his first name is `Rupert' - whereas from the novels we know his true name is `Reginald'. Ah, ha! An impostor!In the helping cast, George Givot has some funny moments as a phony Russian prince. Franklin Pangborn shines in a small role as a headwaiter; too terrible he has no scenes with Treacher.


This is one of two Jeeves & Wooster movies released by Twentieth-Century Fox on a single DVD. However, oddly, this follow-up to "Thank You, Jeeves" does NOT have Wooster--just his manservant, Jeeves! So, while they were unable to receive David Niven to return for this film, Arthur Treacher was on hand to reprise his role as the imperturbable butler, Jeeves. As for me, I didn't mind too much, as Treacher was the greatest hero (by far) in the first film--the method Treacher underplayed the guy was terrific.While I did play this second film, it was a bit of a letdown for two reasons. First, without Wooster there was a trouble with the film's chemistry. Instead of a Jeeves & Wooster film, it was much more of a gangster film. Second, while Jeeves was supposedly the star of the film, Treacher seemed to have very tiny to do in the movie another than to create a several appearances here and there. So it's clearly not up to the standards of the first film--though it is still enjoyable if you don't expect a Wodehouse story. Well produced...just not up to the standards you'd expect.By the way, if you wish to know why Wooster was not in this film, test watching the DVD additional "The Globe of Wodehouse" on the same DVD. It explains this as well as discusses how various the first and second movie were.


When I acquired the two Jeeves movies that Arthur Treacher did I learned that Darryl Zanuck and 20th Century Fox because of the success of Thank You Jeeves wanted to purchase David Niven's contract from Sam Goldwyn. But Goldwyn balked. Zanuck wanted to create a series of movies based on the P.G. Wodehouse characters, but it was not to be. One wonders about David Niven's career had that happened, but in terms of this movie Jeeves without Wooster was a bit of a allow down for Wodehouse purists.The method it worked is that his impulsive and bored master was constantly getting into issues over his head and Jeeves would pull him out. He was the steady rock of the team.But in Step Lively Jeeves it is Arthur Treacher who gets used by a pair of conmen, Georges Givot and Alan Dinehart. These two convince Treacher he's the heir to Sir Francis Drake and there's a hidden treasure that is his by right. And of course if people wish to invest in the finding of told treasure why Dinehart and Givot are ready to help.Their con minigame gets a stroke of luck as a former bootlegger who stashed his loot and is actually rich is desperate to ruin society take up Treacher's cause. John Harrington and Helen Flint are a pair too nice to be true, but in itself causes issues for our two conmen.Step Lively Jeeves is a funny enough film, but it's all cockeyed as Jeeves is supposed to be the smart one.
