Product description

Product Description

Carry On Henry is the (almost) true story of the love life of that much-married English monarch, King Henry VIII (Sid James). A right Royal flush is guaranteed when flirty Bettina (Barbara Windsor) becomes a favourite at court much to the displeasure of Queen Marie (Joan Sims). Discover previously hidden details of Henry’s private life, such as his hatred of garlic and his love of hunting (wenches, that is!). Sid James turns in a majestic performance and is given noble support by Carry On greats Kenneth Williams, Terry Scott, Charles Hawtrey and Kenneth Connor as his not-so-loyal courtiers.

From Amazon.co.uk

Shot in the bright postal colours of a seaside postcard, 1971's Carry On Henry applies the usual Carry On sniggering to the married life of Henry VIII. Talbot Rothwell's script is standard bedroom farce and full of jokes about choppers, while the threat of beheading and the actuality of torture are constantly present but only as the terrible things that happen to cartoon characters who will be back next time. Sid James turns in one of his better performances as the endlessly lecherous and fickle Henry, married to Joan Sims and lusting after Barbara Windsor. There is a genuine sexual chemistry between James and Windsor, which at times almost breaks open the farce formula. The usual regulars--Kenneth Williams as Thomas Cromwell, Terry Scott as Cardinal Wolsey, Charles Hawtrey as Sir Roger--do their usual turns; Williams is more subdued than usual, while Hawtrey hugely enjoys playing the Queen's secret lover. This was not one of the high points of the series, but it has its own curious charm. --Roz Kaveney
