5.0 out of 5 stars Infamy! Infamy! They've all got it in fer me! 15 Nov 2003
By S. Hapgood VINE VOICE
Format:VHS Tape
This features probably some of the best gags in the whole Carry On series. It is also regarded as probably the best in the series and I won't argue with that. Kenneth Williams is superb as Julius Caesar, strutting around petulantly like Tony Blair in a hissy fit, constantly exclaiming that no one understands him. Joan Sims does what she does best, the ball-breaking wife, gobbling grapes in her bath-tub and bawling out Julius for being 4 years late coming home from his latest invasion. Charles Hawtrey as the dotty old soothsaying father, Sid James as a bawdy Mark Anthony, and Amanda Barrie looking lovely in a bath-cap as a ditzy Cleopatra. Warren Mitchell also puts in an enjoyable performance as the auctioneer at a slave market. This is great fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of their finest ! 29 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
When you think about the budget that went into the original version with Liz and Richard, it's quite amazing what came out with less than a 10th of that for this superb "masterpiece" ! Laughs all the way. The Carry on team were probably at their zenith with words games at the time of production.
Excellent performances by all the team, the two Kenneths are adorable, Joans Sims is stunning. But without a doubt the oscars have to go to Cleo, and her Mark Anthony.
A wonderful family classic to be enjoyed by all - consume without moderation !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars We who are about to watch Salute you!! 14 Nov 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Utterly utterly brilliant, easily the best of the Carry On's. All the old faves are back + Amanda Barrie as the wide eyed, dim witted Cleopatra. Awash with classic lines .., " Remember Julius always wear your wool vest" the casting is superb with Kenneth Williams preening and mincing as Ceasar, Sid James as his traiterous friend Mark Anthony, Joan Sims as Ceasar's wife and Charles Hawtrey as Ceasar's father in law, Senneca who is prone to the odd vision when drunk enough. Completely irreverant and totally hysterical no matter how many times you see it - once you've seen this you'll never take Ben Hur seriously again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Start with the greatest Carry On of all! 17 Jun 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This film marks the high point of the Carry On series. Some have always claimed that the best films of the series were the historical satires. This film would certainly back up that view. KENNETH WILLIAMS makes an exellent camp Julius Ceasar who liturally has the whole of Rome after his blood. With a strong plot, hard to explain in this space, the plot sees the gang of WILLIAMS, SID JAMES, CHARLES HAWTREY, JIM DALE and KENNETH CONNOR travel to Egypt to meet Cleopatra (AMANDA BARRIE) and discuss an alliance between Rome and Egypt. Meanwhile the not-so-caring wife of Ceasar (JOAN SIMMS) stays at home. This is my favourite of the lot, which gives Williams his greatest performance in a Carry On. Although others came close!
