5.0 out of 5 stars The best Carry On has never looked better 12 Jun 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
You know the movie by now, so we won't go into that. For many it's the best of the series. I'd certainly put it in my top 3. Aside from that, what about the Blu-ray? Well, it's certainly clear that the film has never looked better. The only scenes that don't seem to have improved much are the early sequences between Jim Dale & Kenneth Connor in Ancient Britain. Those scenes still look a bit grainy. After that though, things certainly pick up. The sequences in Rome & Egypt are sharp, clear and look as though they were shot yesterday. As I mentioned in my Carry On Cowboy Blu-ray review, it would be nice if there were some extras and maybe even a booklet to go with the release as it doesn't exactly come cheap!

By Mr. J. C. Kent VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The tenth Carry on film was the most lavish they ever made (largely due to using the sets and costumes inherited from the extravagant production 'Cleopatra'). Its also one of the finest. The humour is so sharp thanks to one of Talbot Rothwell's best scripts. The cast are all clearly having a ball, with Kenneth Williams' as 'Julie' Caesar ("ooh, I do feel queer") and Amanda Barrie's Cleo really standing out.

And now, 50 years after release, we have the film in glorious HD on Blu-ray. So how does it look? In one word - fantastic. Compared to the previous SD Studio Canal DVD release this is a HUGE upgrade. The picture is exceptionally sharp and very clean. The colour is also much better than the DVD release, being washed out and over dark on the previous version. There is a fine grain evident throughout, as there should be for a film of this era, and it is presented in the correct ratio of 1.66:1. Barring a full negative restoration (which is sadly likely to never happen) this is the finest this film will probably ever look.

The special features were all previously on the DVD. You get the original trailer, stills gallery and an audio commentary from Amanda Barrie (Cleo) and Julie Stevens (Gloria) moderated by Robert Ross (Carry On expert). The commentary is a wonderful affair, with both actresses giving many insightful tales. The DVD also had some trivia info which is not on the Blu-ray, but it is no great loss (I would guide people to the Carry On Companion by Robert Ross for the full story behind all the Carry on films).

The packaging is a bit poor, with the cover picture appearing a bit blurred, and the running time stated as 95mins, despite actually being 92mins, but these are minor quibbles on an otherwise superb release.

Highly Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best. An essential purchase. 28 Jan 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Number 10 in the series sees the team take advantage of the sets from Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton's Cleopatra left at Pinewood Studios. Sidney James returns to the series after being absent for three films and plays Marc Antony to Kenneth Williams's Julius Caeser. Joan Sims also makes a welcome return after being absent for the last four films. Sims plays Wiliams's hard-faced wife, while her father is played by Charles Hawtrey. Kenneth Connor is another actor making a welcome return after an absence of three films - he and Jim Dale are British slaves who break free in an effort to return to their homeland. Meanwhile James is deciding how exactly he is going to dispose of Williams after he has fallen for Cleo (Amanda Barrie). The innuendos are flying around like never before in the series and after watching this, you'll never look at Burton and Taylor's film and keep a straight face ever again. After Carry On Cleo it's difficult to imagine exactly how they could top it. But thankfully they did! A couple of times! Look out for William's "Infamy" speech. A winner every time!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good spoof 16 Jun 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I believe the Roman Government placed a ban on this film for making a mockery of Caesar. The only one who comes 'clean' out of this is Cleo, who must have thought milk would turn her skin white!

5.0 out of 5 stars Second Best In The Series 17 May 2006
Format:DVD
Carry On Cleo is one of the series entries that will always be remembered. It simply is classic British comedy at it's best. When filming at Pinewood studios for the disastorous epic, Cleopatra, starring Elizabeth Taylor, was abandoned there, Peter rodgers and Gerald Thomas just could'nt resist the advantage of the lavish and spectacular sets, making it all look a lot more extravagent than most of the other Carry On's that were filmed on a shoe string budget. the cast are all on top form with Kenneth Williams as Julius Caesar and Sid James as Mark Anthony, delivering the funniest lines. Also included in the cast are Amanda Barrie in the title role, Joan Sims, Jim Dale, Kenneth Connor as well as guest appearances from acclaimed classical actress, Sheila Hancock and Warren Mitchell from the classic sitcom, Till Death Do Us Part.

Hilarious from beginning to end and packed full of classic one liners ("infamy, infamy, they've all got in for me" cries Kenneth Williams as Julius Caesar as he is about to be killed). This is a absolutley essential Carry On and is a great one to induct somebody who has never heard of this long running and triumphantly succesful British comedy series.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4/5 stars 3 July 2010
By Rebecca
Format:DVD
Recently got my copy of this 'Optimum Releasing' 2007 re-re-release of this title and was so delighted that in addition to the film we are also treated to a three minute trailer, a four minute stills gallery and most welcome of all a commentary. Sitting around the microphones for this particular title we have moderator (and Carry On film expert) Robert Ross who is joined by actresses Amanda Barrie (the title Cleo character) and Julie Stevens (who played Gloria).
Really got it as its one of my favourite Carry On's but judging on the fine job that Optimum Releasing have done here I'll certainly be considering more titles in their 'Carry On' range, especially in the 50th anniversary year of this franchise!
