Tee hee. And thank you.Please -- carry on!
Absolutely.The early Carry Ons - the Norman Hudis era - are very underrated, they are very strong entries in their own right.
In terms of reputation I agree that it's Rothwell's films that are in the public consciousness of most Brits today. For most people the term "Carry On" would probably bring a scene or soundbite from one of his films to mind. He did write nineteen-and-a-bit after all, compared with Hudis's six.But Talbot Rothwell's entry to the series helped cement the reputation that the films now have, creating some of the greatest British comedy films ever.
Phillips has said that the more he tried to make it sound innocuous the filthier it became.In Carry On Teacher they had serious concerns about the way in which Leslie Phillips said the name "Allcock" and the entire crew would walk round Pinewood proving they could say it without sounding risqué but they couldn't!
Carry On Abroad. The standard for bad package holidays ever since.The couple dancing well the hotel is falling apart around them,is to me the funnest thing I saw as a kid.
