Customer Review

on 27 December 2010
From the opening scene when you think the ambulance is on an emergency run but soon discover the driver and attendant are rushing back to the hospital to find out the result of the horse race you know you are going to be in for 80 odd minutes of fun and laughs from a bunch of the "Carry-On Team" without a swear word being uttered.Coming from the usual producer/director partnership of Peter Rogers and Gerald Thomas this one starred Kenneth Williams,Connor,Charles Hawtrey, Joan Sims and Hattie Jaques among the regulars with Leslie Phillips,Shirley Eaton,Susan Stephen,Bill Owen,Terence Longdon,Joan Hickson and Irene Handl also aboard.There is smoking in the wards?An attempted operation carried out by the patients and the fear of the Matrons visits - very realistic in those days and which would undoubtedly SEND A MUCH NEEDED MESSAGE IN THE NHS TODAY!!Wilfred Hyde White plays the troublesome old-goat of a Colonel who has the poor nurses running around all day long and ends-up having his temperature taken in the most unusual way for his "cheek" - pun not intended.Kenneth Williams even falls in love with a WOMAN - but given that it's a young Jill Ireland, who wouldn't? All in all considering it's Carry On on only its 2nd outing it really is Good Old Fashioned Fun!
