Carry On Cowboy (and other "carry on" movies)

Recommended Posts

I just caught "Carry On Cowboy" on TCM. It was interesting to see the very British cast do a spoof of Westerns. Sid James did a good American accent, the others not so much. (The local Indian chief was deliberately played as extremely British.) I also recall being quite amused by "Carry On Cleo" (a spoof of the Elizabeth Taylor "Cleopatra") many years ago.


Any thoughts on the "Carry On" series?

I should of called myself Carryonfan, as I am a huge fan of the Carry on series. Even though Carry on Cowboy sadly was the latest one TCM aired. It's far from the best of the series Carry on Jack and Carry on Cleo are my favs. But it's really hard to pick out bad one in the earlier films as there is are so many excellent ones. Take the very 1st Carry On Sergeant, when I 1st saw William Hartnell outside of his more famous role to American fans as the very 1st Doctor in Doctor Who. I was surprised when I checked out imdb and found Mr. Hartnell had done many such films where he played a Sgt.


Then there is Carry on Nurse the very 1st of their spoofs of the medical profession and probily their very best. Especially the scene where the patients want to perform surgery. I laugh everytime I see it


I think Carry on Spying is the biggest underdog of the entire series. To me it's more of a out there spy spoof than Casino Royale (original 1967 version). They don't leave out anyone...period.
