[In reference to Joan Sims and Carry on Abroad (1972)] It was a great reunion for me seeing Joan again, we did a couple of things together in the early 1960s. Being on this film we really did renew our friendship. (2003)
[In reference to Kenneth Williams during the filming of Carry on Abroad (1972)] He ignored me completely during the entire six weeks of filming. Even afterwards when I got chummy with Hattie (Hattie Jacques), who would invite me every year for Christmas day and Kenneth was always there and he still never spoke to me. He totally ignored me and then to my complete surprise he wrote some very sweet things about me in his diaries. (2003)
