Review

The Carry On films may have their knockers (cue dirty laugh) but there’s no disputing the enduring appeal of Kenneth Williams and Sid James, their chalk-and-cheese leading men. These two profiles are hardly Arena standard, but have unearthed footage of the actors on set and sourced anecdotes from chums such as Barbara Windsor
and Bernard Cribbins.

It’s a clips-heavy show, so expect much nostril-flaring from Kenny as “Julie” Caesar, Dr Tinkle and the Khasi of Kalabar, and prune-faced Sid as the Rumpo Kid, Sir Sidney Ruff-Diamond and Gladstone Screwer — with a tad less leering in snatches from Hancock’s Half Hour.

Summary

With rare footage, the Carry On team pays tribute to Kenneth Williams, one of Britain's most popular comic actors.
