Of these new 'Collection' range of Carry Ons we have 4 of the best.
Screaming: Brilliant retelling of every Hammer Horror from Dracula to mainly Frankenstein this film is full of laughs, beautiful ladies (Fanella Fielding, Angela Douglas) and funny in-jokes. Even the Doctor Who reference went almost completely by.
Cowboy: Fantastic spoofing of nearly every Classic Studio Cowboy film to date with a wonderful cast and fantastic performances from Jim Dale, Kenneth Williams and Charles Hawtree, as well as the usual regulars.
Cleo: One of the best Carry Ons there ever was. Using the sets and costumes left over from Liz Taylor's 'Cleopatra' this film heavily spoofs its lengthier predescessor. Every minute of screentime is filled with humour, wit and of-the-time nuances and jibs. Top marks to Kenneth Williams again, Charlie Hawtree, Amanda Barrie, Sheila Hancock and a fantasitc cameo from Jon Pertwee.
Spying: Clever spoof of many spy films cvirculating at the time, including James Bond, MOdesty Blaise and the Third Man. Amazing climax.
Besides which, good price for four classic films destined to never, ever stop being funny.
