Excellent - would have preferred it in colour as I know this film exists in a colour version but apart from that,picture and sound more than adequante given the production year.

Nicely presented with a good choice of bands. Unfortunately it doesn't resolve my problem with receiving Radio 4 in France. Why can't the BBC send out a stronger signal. Many expatriates depend upon Radio 4 for news and weather from the UK. In addition to being occasionally subjected to days of boring cricket commentary, the signal is very weak. Apart from this, the radio set is excellent on all counts.

3.0 out of 5 stars Strange Choice, 1 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I m a great fan of the carry on films but did not know this one ! I didn't miss much and found the plot rather limited compared to for example Carry on Doctor, Carry on Girls or Carry on Up the Khyber ! Why they chose to start Blu-ray carry-ons with this film just beats me ! In addition, the High Definition is not much in evidence and there is a lot of grain in the dark sequences. It appears that unfortunately a lot of films now appearing in Blu-ray format are not necessarily in high definition. Definitely not worth its current selling price !

4.0 out of 5 stars Good fun !, 15 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although not as cute as the 1947 version, this version is nevertheless a good remake. This blu-ray has excellent picture quality. It has English and French Audio, and English and Spanish subtitles, that's all. A greater selection of lanuages and subtitles would have been more desireable. Audio quality excellent.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Improvement on the DVD, 7 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This film shines in Blu-ray. Picture quality is notably better than on the DVD and the sound too is improved. We need to have more of this type of film edited on Blu-ray, instead of the modern-day trash with dubious color quality and over-exagerrated special effects. The costumes the actors wear come out magnificently in high definition. Bravo !

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful and compact, 8 Jun 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This little book is above all COMPACT and at the same time informative and a pleasure to read. To be read once before visiting the destination and then again at destination with a little more attention to detail. The practical section is very good and corresponds to reality in the city of destination. It can easily be handed and read in an aircraft, train, bus or other form of transport. The way it's phrased immediately gives the reader the desire to visit for him/herself and learn more. Highly recommendeable - its compact size is a big PLUS for the holidaymaker.
