Funny...and really interesting!,
This review is from: Carry On Doctor [DVD]  (DVD)
I grew up watching Carry Ons - but I never really thought about buying the DVD's until I happened to pick up one in a shop and read about the audio commentary by Jim Dale. Now Sid James, Kenneth Williams, Charles Hawtrey, Hattie Jacques, Joan Sims and Burnard Bresslaw are no longer with us he's the last (in my humble opinion) of what I class as my REAL Carry On gang and it was great listening to Jim talk his way through what he remembers of making the films (the most clear memories seem to be the pain involved in some of the stunts!!) It was also lovely hearing him talk about his co-stars - the real, personal memories of people he worked with for many years, people that were far more than the human caricatures they seem to have become. He was friends with who he says was the real Kenneth Williams and he'll tell you what Sid James was really like to work with - a true gentleman. These films are a British institution and stars are some of the most intriguing actors in British comedy. Having these commentaries gives you a real personal insight into their making...from a very funny man!
