Reviews

The first four films from the hugely popular 'Carry On' series. In 'Carry On Sergeant' (1958), a sergeant (William Hartnell) takes a bet that the last recruits he trains will win the 'Star Squad' award. The sergeant's inept young charges include Bob Monkhouse, Kenneth Williams, Charles Hawtrey and Kenneth Connor. In 'Carry On Teacher' (1959), trouble erupts at a secondary school when inspectors arrive to evaluate the teachers' work. A group of pupils (led by a youthful Richard O'Sullivan) who don't want their teacher transferred to a different job play up. In 'Carry On Nurse' (1959), the patients in a men's hospital ward decide to revolt against the staff, as led by the indomitable Matron (Hattie Jacques). Finally, in 'Carry On Constable' (1959), police sergeant Wilkins (Sid James) has a new batch of dubious recruits on his hands, whose idea of covert surveillance involves dressing up in drag.

This good value bumper pack comprises the first four movies in the popular Carry On canon (from 1957 to 1960). All four films are highly enjoyable, though (befitting the era) relatively gentle efforts in a series that in later years mutated into several forms, through genre parody, historical camp, and finally seedy sex farce.
Carry On Sergeant sees William Hartnell (in his only Carry On appearance) training a hopeless bunch of National Servicemen (which includes another `one off' turn in the form of Bob Monkhouse). With its slight storyline and comparatively innocuous jokes and situations, the film doesn't really feel like a genuine Carry On outing, despite the debuting presence of (soon-to-be) regulars like Kenneth Williams (prototype arch snob), Charles Hawtrey (prototype mincing ninny), and Hattie Jacques (prototype old dragon). All were to expand their personas and give far funnier turns in later films; however, Kenneth Connor, another series regular, gives arguably his best Carry On performance as the hypochondriac in the bunch.
Carry On Nurse is more satisfying overall, with a broader sense of humour and a more inventive and varied plot; here, Hawtrey shines brightest, as a more extroverted character than he essayed in the first film, whilst Shirley `Goldfinger' Eaton is absolutely gorgeous as the main `Nurse' of the title.

I bought this to watch with my friend and we thoroughly enjoyed watching the films, they may be dated, but they still show Britain at a time when we could laugh, and of course it was full of old familiar faces from our youth, Black & White, Corny Humour and Predictible Plots, but for Pure Escapism. Sheer Bliss.

I had loads of the Carry On films already. So it wasn't worth me buying the complete set. This four-movie DVD was a good way of getting the films I didn't have. Now I nearly have all the Carry Ons. I can strongly recommend this DVD collection.

I bought this dvd along with vol 2 and vol 3 even though i already have the full set of Carry on films. The reason being is that most of the other companies released the first 16 films of this series only in the 1.33(4.3) ratio. Now these sets of 4 films on each disc are in 16.9(1.85) widescreen which now makes them more enjoyable to watch without any black bars showing on the tv screen. As for the films themselves,anyone who dosen't like the Carry On films must be from another planet. Recommended for all Carry On fans.

Four of the hilarious Carry On films in one package. The stars - Sid James, Charles Hawtrey, Kenneth Williams, Kenneth Connor, Joan Sims, Hattie Jacques, Barbara Windsor and others make each of the films a joy to watch. This is a classic example of when comedy really was comedy without having to rely on foul language. The inuendos run fast and furious throughout, and the elements of slapstick - typical Carry On content - add to the side-splitting laughter enjoyment of each film.

This is a collection of 4 of the very best carry on films - true they are not the most sophisticated of all movies but if you can get past that then they do give an at times glorioulsy funny insight into times gone by along with a potted history lesson
I keep them by the TV to pop on in case they evenings viewing is lackustre - frequently nowadays

I am British although have lived overseas for the past 25 years and now live in Indonesia so I missed to watch many of the “Carry On” series.
I also now suffer from Alzheimer’s and watching theses DVDs has bought back many happy memories which I would recommend to any other British person who has any type of dementia as a good laugh everyday is very much recommended and you certainly get that from the (Carry On Film Series) so all I add to that is “Carry on Viewing and ordering from Amazon”

The first bunch of classics Carry On's and this is a great place to start.

First Carry On Sergeant, Perhaps not the best starting point, but a classic Carry On, very Funny and very entertaining. 7/10
Second Carry On Nurse, Now after the first Carry On, we get the cream of all the hospital Carry On's, this is highly amusing and very funny, an absolute gem. 8/10
Third Carry On Teacher, Simple hilarious from start to finish, it just has a certain quality about it, knocks spots off Please Sir! 7/10
Forth Carry On Constable, we get Sid's first appearance, however it is quite a good one, it can get quite boring by the end. 7/10
