Product Description

Product Description

This was the second 'Carry On' film, and a hit in the United States. The patients in a men's hospital ward decide to revolt against the staff, as led by the indomitable Matron (Hattie Jacques). Troublesome patients include Kenneth Williams, Leslie Phillips, Kenneth Connor and Charles Hawtrey. Producer Peter Rogers was offered a five-movie deal on the strength of this film's success.

The next time you're in your hospital bed and two nurses walk in with a long-stemmed daffodil, do not under any circumstance roll over on your stomach.

Carry On Nurse was the second in the Carry On stream of British comedies that began with Carry On Sergeant and lasted for nearly 20 years. You'll either love 'em or you'll hate 'em. You'll love Carry On Nurse, or at least feel a warm, gentle glow of nostalgia break out over you like a rash, if naughty humor based on bedpans, buxom nurses, buttock massages and bunions make you smile. We're in a hospital ward where the male patients are ruled by Matron and where almost every nurse is a knock-out. Naturally, they innocently cause acute adjustment problems for the men who are away from wives and girlfriends. The Carry On gang is represented here by Kenneth Connor as an anxious but well-meaning boxer; Kenneth Williams, all intellectual condescension; Terence Longdon, the good-looking observer; Charles Hawtrey, who made mincing about an art form; Hattie Jacques as the iron-willed Matron; and a number of others, including a solo appearance by Wilfred Hyde-White as a demanding patient who winds up in the best joke of the movie. It involves that daffodil. Among the nurses is Shirley Eaton, guaranteed to disturb any man's dreams.

The story, such as it is, is even slighter than Carry On Sergeant. Carry On Nurse is really a series of episodic vignettes and jokes, leading up to Hawtrey swishing about in a nurse's uniform, Williams brandishing knives and preparing to remove a bunion while reading how to do it, Connor administering the anesthetic which turns out to be laughing gas, and poor Lesley Phillips, who just wanted his bunion fixed so he could get on with a bit of snogging he'd arranged for the next day.

I've only just seen this, 50 years late, but it was worth the wait. All the regular stalwarts are there, with the exception of Sid James and Jim Dale; but its none the worse for that. In fact its a funny, and for its time quite racy film.

Standout amongst the performances are Hattie Jacques as the 'Matron', who all the hospital staff are terrified of. However even Matron is lost for words when Oliver (played by Kenneth Williams) tells her the truth about 'the rules'. To pick one member of the cast is unfair though, as they are all good and amazingly some are still with us to this day.

The film is also a reflection of its time. Single sex wards and smoking in them as well - surely some mistake!

This is simple film, the like of which are not made today. Buy it and be entertained.

Warning, this film may be enjoyed. it does not contain Sid James or Barbara Windsor.

Made in the days when nurses had time for their patients, hospitals looked like hospitals should be and Matron was in charge.

From the opening scene when you think the ambulance is on an emergency run but soon discover the driver and attendant are rushing back to the hospital to find out the result of the horse race you know you are going to be in for 80 odd minutes of fun and laughs from a bunch of the "Carry-On Team" without a swear word being uttered.Coming from the usual producer/director partnership of Peter Rogers and Gerald Thomas this one starred Kenneth Williams,Connor,Charles Hawtrey, Joan Sims and Hattie Jaques among the regulars with Leslie Phillips,Shirley Eaton,Susan Stephen,Bill Owen,Terence Longdon,Joan Hickson and Irene Handl also aboard.There is smoking in the wards?An attempted operation carried out by the patients and the fear of the Matrons visits - very realistic in those days and which would undoubtedly SEND A MUCH NEEDED MESSAGE IN THE NHS TODAY!!Wilfred Hyde White plays the troublesome old-goat of a Colonel who has the poor nurses running around all day long and ends-up having his temperature taken in the most unusual way for his "cheek" - pun not intended.Kenneth Williams even falls in love with a WOMAN - but given that it's a young Jill Ireland, who wouldn't? All in all considering it's Carry On on only its 2nd outing it really is Good Old Fashioned Fun!

Carry On Nurse saw the series hit the jackpot with this proving an enormous box office suucess in the U.S.A where it ran in some cinemas for an astounding 2 and a half years! Whilst some firmly regard this as one of the best of the entire series, it has to be said that this film has nothing on some of the later medical entries such as Doctor (1967) (even though that was a virtually an updated remake of Nurse), Again Doctor (1969) and Matron (71). The film develops at a leisurley pace and has no real back bone of a plot. Hattie Jaques plays the no-nonsense Matron which would become something of her trademark in the series, Kenneth Williams, Charles Hawtrey, Kenneth Connor and Leslie Phillips are amongst the patients and Joan Sims makes her debut apperance in a Carry On film (who would stay with the series through to Carry On Emmanuelle in 1978) as a clumsy, accident-prone nurse. A gentle comedy that doesn't quite hit the delights of some of the series future entries but with the vast majority of the regulars being involved its defintley worth a look!
