Unparelled! Unchangelled! If you need any statistic from the regime of the great Carry On films, you will undoubtly find it in Kevin Snelgrove's sparkling new book. --Alan Curtis (Carry On Henry and Carry On Abroad)
Since watching Carry On Camping as a 10-year-old girl nothing since has ever seemed as funny. Terry Scott in his ridiculous long shorts (or were they short longs) ... Charles Hawtrey try just being ... well - Charles Hawtrey try and the inimitable Kenneth Williams being pursued by Hattie Jacques in his usual 'camp' manner ... Oh dear ... no pun intended ... As for double entendres ... they should just whip 'em out! I say, Carry on, Carry On films ... All carry on fans will enjoy this book! --Kate Robbins
The book is a tribute to the films, and celebrities attending the event include producer Peter Rogers, Alan Hume, who was camera man to 16 films, and actors including Jack Douglas, Leslie Phillips, June Whitfield, Bill Maynard, Frank Thornton, Anita Harris and Dora Bryan. Many celebrities have endorsed the book. --Wiltshire Times

It's hard to think what more could be written about these films! But this book goes some way towards teaching Carry On fans a few things you may not otherwise have known. There are better books for reading about the actual story of the films production but this is a pleasant diversion until the next book comes along!

I worry about the validity of the facts presented in here. Just by casually flicking through it I spotted several glaring amateur errors including Charles Hawtreys birth date being nearly 20 years out, several inaccurate 'did you know' facts, and 'Norbet smith- a life' presented as a carry on production when it was a completely separate programme that merely included a Harry Enfield sketch pastiching the Carry Ons.

A great book that tells you all you want to know about the Carry On films. I love them and believe I know a lot about them but this book taught me more. Well written and maintains it's interest to the end. Well done to the author.

I was given this book as birthday present. It is a wonderful collection of facts and figures all over the Carry On Films. Really enjoyed it and a book I will always treasure.
Good, but a bit "bitty" and some rather pointless facts/figures
I was given this book as a gift, and thoroughly enjoyed it. filled with some really interesting facts that despite being a massive carry on fan i didn't know!Read more

There were far too many lists of dates and statistics without the written back up it became very tedious very quickly
