Top customer reviews
So much has been written about the Carry Ons and their negatives, zooming in on the appaling pay for the stars, the on-set rivalries and the political incorrectness of the films, that it is a joy to find someone focus on the positives, the naughty but inofensive scripts, the crisp direction, and the performances that range from wildly and hilariously camp (Williams, Hawtrey) to quality "proper" acting (Jim Dale, Sid James in Carry on Cowboy).
This is a fantastic book, and along with Ross' other works should be purchased by anyone with a fondness for this era.
