I find that no matter how many years pass, the Carry On films still weave their spell on me.
This book is a great add on to the films, and although the passage of time has meant that many of those stars alive at its writing have since left us, it does get under the "skin" of what made the Carry On's such a British institution.
While this doesnt delve too deeply into the personal and often tortured lives of some of the series stars, it gives enough detail to make you wish for more. This is a well presented volume, neatly and chronologically shedding light on each film, and giving insights into scenes that ended on the cutting room floor.
Again, this book may be 5 yrs old now, but it is still well worth a read.
