I still love the Carry On movies, with their nudge-nudge double entendres. Yes, they were low budget movie versions of those tacky old seaside postcards, but they featured some of the greatest comedic actors known to cinema: Kenneth Williams, Hattie Jacques, Sid James, Charles Hawtrey, Joan Sims, Bernard Bresslaw, Babs Windsor...
And, of course, none of that dreary political correctness that has brought modern-day UK to its knees.
For all that Britain was a kinder, nicer place in the 60s and 70s. This one is as many are set in a hospital with a group of bumbling doctors, nurses and irrepressible patients. A sample of the humour: Biddle: Nurse I dreamt about you last night.
Nurse Clarke: Did you?
Biddle: No, you wouldn't let me.
Dr James Kilmore: Just as I thought. You fell on your coccyx.
Francis Bigger: I did not. I fell on my back.
Dr James Kilmore: Your coccyx is at the base of the spine.
Francis Bigger: Well I've never heard it called that before.
Highlights include the rooftop bathing scene with the quirky and cute Babs Windsor and the patients rebellion at the end seeing Matron (Hatti Jaques) and the hated Dr Tinkle (Kenneth Williams)
get their commupance for their plot against the well liked Dr Kilmore (Jim Dale).
Once you see this one you will keep coming up for more
