Carry On Don't Lose Your Head [DVD] DVD ~ Kenneth Williams
Very Funny send up of The Scarlet Pimpernel. Not all of the regular Carry Ons are present in this film, but those who are really do their bit of having a great laugh as the Black Fingernail, Sir Roger Ffing with two Fs (Sid James) and his sidekick, Lord Darcy (Jim Dale) travel into the heart of the French Revolution to rescue Lords and Ladies, and Men and Women of both sexes from Madam La Guillotine.

A few years ago, a box set of Laurel and Hardy films was released containing something like 21 DVDs. For some reason, this classic comedy was not in the set. So, it is more than welcome that this very funny film can be purchased separately to add to the set. It is one of their best comedies; Stan and Ollie, whilst in Scotland collecting their supposed inheritance, accidently join the Army and are sent to India. There are some really funny set pieces in this film, and of course, James Finlayson makes an appearance like he usually does in a Laurel and Hardy comedy. Picture and sound for a film made during the mid 1930s is pretty good making this a worthwhile purchase not only for Laurel and… Read more
