One of the best things about this much very under-rated film is how it shows the influence of women in British comedy from Dilys Laye to Patsy Rowlands; Wendy Richards to Barbara Windsor; the late great Joan Sims to Shirley Eaton.
Director Paul Gallagher shows how these women were revolutionaries in comedy and their affect can be seen today in The League of Gentlemen to even Saturday Night Live; Absolutely Fabulous to French and Saunders.
So, why is this film so sadly overlooked? Are there still sexist big-wigs at the top of film comedy who sadly still believe women aren't funny???
Watch this documentary film and see how funny and how important the 'girls' of the Carry On films have been on world comedy!
10/10 - unmissable!!
