A Hard Hitting Motion Picture!
7 April 2004 | by hhbooker2-1See all my reviews

Sydney James of the "CARRY ON" comedy fame really adds a lot to the motion picture in the role of a blind man. How can any movie with Sid not be a total success? The actor who plays the Zulu Chief should have gotten a supporting actor award as well. Would have been nice to have had Kenneth Williams, Barbara Windsor, Charles Hawtrey, and others in this film to make it even better, it would have been called "CARRY ON TOKOLOSHE" by Peter Rogers! Still, it holds its own as a remarkable film worth seeing several times a year! This would be a hard film to do over as there isn't anything that could top this. The DVD or video should be in the collection of every true film buff who admires the work of Sid James.
