^

The Carry On films were a series of films made in the 60's and 70's in England and I think there are about 30 films in all.

They are very British comedies based on sexual inneundo and double entendres and the same cast of regulars were involved in the series. They are very funny and very entertaining. Most Brits have seen them several times as they are often on TV over here.

Kenneth Williams is one of the regular actors (his picture is my avatar).

31 I believe!

Sid James, Ken Connor, Bernie Bresslaw, Babs Windsor - and the much underrated, Peter Butterworth!

If you like Benny Hill, then you would probably like Carry On films too!

Benny Hill was good....but MsMofo, Dad's Army u should check out too! One of the finest comedy series the UK has produced! 81 eps and 1 movie of pure comedy genius!
It basically follows the local Home Guard in a fictional town called Walmington on Sea, during WWII. It ran between 1968-1978, and is still repeated all the time on Sky.

I've never even heard of this one, it's very "new" to me ...
Sorry, I wouldn't be able to catch it over here anyway, as I don't get Sky ...
used to a long time ago, but not any more ...

Although, 747 is probably just too busy in his shop to answer me now ...
he's NEVER been known to EVER be speechless since I've known him here !!
