I perused the back of the DVD cover of Sergeant/Nurse and it says that the Carry On series "was a surprise hit in America." That certainly goes for me as a token Everyman/ LittleChap/etc. yank. Still can't get over someone watching it in a theatre in Nebraska (NEBRASKA?!) as mentioned earlier.

The appeal of Valerie Leon translates into all cultures. big grin

That's a cast and a half, that is.

I saw Donald Sinden star in a farce on the London stage many moons ago in Shut Your Eyes & Think Of England!

I saw him live when he compered Filmharmonic 80 with his then co-star of sitcom Two's Company, Elaine Stritch. The one and only time I've seen John Williams, which is why I went. The fact that the show also had John Addison and a section celebrating ITV (which is why the two comperes were there) was actually beside the point. Amazing show though. You wouldn't believe how good both Emmerdale Farm (yes, FARM!) and the Corrie theme sounded that evening.

My mate was asleep for most of it. It had been a big day. Early rise to get to London from Barnsley. Full day at the Starburst Convention where I failed to meet my hero Ray Harryhausen (though I made up for it later eh, Bill?), and then this. A rescued Who con the next day too, in Sidcup, Kent, where I met and had my first with-a-celeb photo with Katy Manning. Ruddy marvelous!

I've been watching some Hammer horror movies this month and there is some overlap with Carry On actors. I've been enjoying several of the Hammer films, especially The Devil Rides Out, The Witches, and Vampire Circus. But not so much Blood From the Mummy's Tomb starring the awesome Valerie Leon. The movie is great as a hymn to her physical beauty, but overall it's a bore.

Hattie Jacques in Carry On Abroad: "blooding this and blooding that!" The p-take on English as a foreign language is plain top dead centre funny.

Yes, Hattie stomping about the kitchen and shouting "bloodings stove" was very funny. On that subject, my ex-wife adored the Carry on films. Way back in 1987 i had recorded all of them on VHS for her and it even formed part of the divorce settlement - i let her keep them! I traded for the slow cooker and bread bin i think! smile
But the sketch with spanish hotel owner Peter Butterworth and his broken english "chippings" remains her favourite to this day.

Stuart Farquahar (Kenneth Williams): "i certainly hope you show a little more imagination with the main dish...?"

Pepe Hotel owner - now as head waiter (Peter Butterworth): "Ahhhh, zat is specialities of ze house!"

Stuart Farquahar: "Ahhh?"

Pepe Hotel owner: "...Yes, sausage, beans and chippings.."

Stuart Farquahar: "...Is that all?!"

Pepe Hotel owner: "All is plenties!"

Stuart Farquahar: "But isnt there a choice?"

Pepe Hotel owner: "Off course you having choices....You have sausage and chippings...sausage and beans... or beans and chippings, that's choices!"
big grin

Not quite in the Liz Taylor / Richard Burton league then?

Should we separate I do wonder what my better-half would want to keep from our media collection ... beyond Bach's Suites for unaccompanied Cello, that is smile Not that I have a collection of Carry on films these days (I disposed of the few DVDs we owned some years ago) but she watches one under sufferance (the rest of the house is too cold to move out of the living room!) smile
