Storyline

A distasteful look into the 'seedy' lives of 4 "Carry On" actors who are no longer alive to defend themselves. Apparently Sid James had an eye for the ladies, whilst Kenneth Williams, Charles Hawtrey and Frankie Howerd... didn't. Written by Anonymous

Superlative documentary about Carry On team
4 January 2005 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Dark, disturbing and hugely entertaining, this excellent documentary examines the lives of Sid James, Kenneth Williams, Charles Hawtrey and Frankie Howerd - three of whom were Carry On stalwarts, Howerd was more of a guest.

Very few documentaries get under the skin of their subject matter and Paul Gallagher has successfully unearthed the heart of each of James, Williams, Hawtrey & Howerd. All were driven by different demons which heightened their comic abilities.

A brilliant and fascinating documentary - a companion piece to Terry Johnson's equally good 'Cor Blimey!'

10/10
