5.0 out of 5 stars Highly revealing, 20 Feb 2011
This review is from: Hattie [DVD] (DVD)
This really shows the decadence of Bohemian style high society during the swinging sixties & no mistake.It really exposes the myth of prim & proper Hattie Jacques the Matron of the Carry On's.No one could imagine that the on-screen sister as seen in Sykes could carry on like that(excuse the pun).The adult scenes are excessive as they surely could have made the point without graphic sexual stuff being shown.But I guess by forcing the viewer to face that dominant aspect of the story one has to confess that this drama changes a persons view of Hattie Jacques.It shows her as more sensitive and complicated than one had previously thought.

The cast attack their parts with gusto and I really enjoyed the portrayal of John Le Mesurier as particularly good .If you love a bargain from Amazon and have a soft-spot for comedy history then this will help pass the time.It proved that just because they make us laugh comedies are not always as happy as they may seem.Comedy & acting are an uncertain trade based as they are on public opinion.It must have been the pressure in part that caused Hattie to go off the rails.I felt very sorry for all the characters who have justice done them in this drama by virtue of superb casting,acting and a top notch screenplay.

So don't delay-buy today !But like the Carry On that Hattie never starred in Carry On Emmannuelle this is for adults only !
