This review is from: Carry On Cleo [DVD]  (DVD)
Number 10 in the series sees the team take advantage of the sets from Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton's Cleopatra left at Pinewood Studios. Sidney James returns to the series after being absent for three films and plays Marc Antony to Kenneth Williams's Julius Caeser. Joan Sims also makes a welcome return after being absent for the last four films. Sims plays Wiliams's hard-faced wife, while her father is played by Charles Hawtrey. Kenneth Connor is another actor making a welcome return after an absence of three films - he and Jim Dale are British slaves who break free in an effort to return to their homeland. Meanwhile James is deciding how exactly he is going to dispose of Williams after he has fallen for Cleo (Amanda Barrie). The innuendos are flying around like never before in the series and after watching this, you'll never look at Burton and Taylor's film and keep a straight face ever again. After Carry On Cleo it's difficult to imagine exactly how they could top it. But thankfully they did! A couple of times! Look out for William's "Infamy" speech. A winner every time!
