About this deal

The sinister Dr Watt has an evil scheme going. He's kidnapping beautiful young women and turning them into mannequins to sell to local stores. Fortunately for Dr Watt, Detective-Sergeant Bung is on the case, and he doesn't have a clue! In this send up of the Hammer Horror movies, there are pastiches of all the horror greats from Frankenstein to Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. That Mitchell and Webb Look features the sketch "Bawdy 1970s Hospital", which portrays a stereotypical Carry On-style hospital with frequent use of double entendre, except by one doctor who has trouble fitting in as he comes out with simple obscenity, unable to understand the distinction. Carry On Down Under was considered when, while on holiday in Australia, Gerald Thomas scouted locations and spoke to the Australian Film Commission about a potential film. The production was abandoned when finance fell through, and a complete script written by Vince Powell is included in the book Fifty Years of Carry On.

Acting Headmaster William Wakefield decides to apply for a post at a new school after 20-years service at Maudlin Street Modern School. Before he can leave he must deal with a visit by a Ministry of Education Inspector, but when a senior boy pupil overhears Wakefield plans to leave at the end of term, he and his school chums plan to sabotage every endeavour that might earn Wakefield praise. I`ve got the first two of these, the quality is hugely improved from the old DVD releases and they are finally in the correct aspect ratio. Carry on cruising looks especially good. The problem with the upcoming third set is that three of the four films are already on blu ray. The remainder of the series developed with increased use of the British comic traditions of music hall and bawdy seaside postcards. Many titles parodied more serious films, such as their tongue-in-cheek homages to James Bond ( Spying), westerns ( Cowboy), and Hammer horror films ( Screaming!). The most impressive of these was Carry On Cleo (1964), in which the budget-conscious production team made full use of some impressive sets that had been created in 1960 for the Burton and Taylor epic Cleopatra (1963) but abandoned when production moved to Rome. Carry On Emmannuelle, inspired by the soft-porn Emmanuelle, brought to an end the original Carry On run.

Then again, I keep hoping for Hellraiser Bloodline: Director's Cut in HD, which is about as likely as seeing a Carry On set.

Sony don’t seem to, as they are sitting on the much more marketable and popular Confessions films. Think they were even happy for the DVD set to go OOP. In the song Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others by The Smiths, one of the lines is "As Anthony said to Cleopatra, as he opened a crate of ale, oh, I say", making reference to Carry on Cleo. A fully restored box set containing the ninth, tenth, eleventh and twelfth Carry On films, fully remastered and restored in high definition. The titles already out there are the more popular ones from Anglo-Amalgamated, before everything was sold and ownership became complicated. Britbox probably restored Khyber as it made the top 100 British films list, and renders it as a stand-alone look at times past. Other films they are eyeing up include The 39 Steps, which seems to point to them only working on British films of some importance. As for Camping, it's the archetypal Carry On film, being the go-to for the series and a logical selection for HD restoration. The head of a temp agency (Sid James) finds that all the people on his books are incapable of performing the odd jobs they are hired for. Eager employees include Kenneth Williams, Charles Hawtrey, Kenneth Connor and Joan Sims.In The Spitting Image Book, released in 1985, there is a reference to a fictitious made-for-TV film entitled Carry On Up the Rectum, satirising the transparency of the puns used for Carry On Up the Khyber and possibly Carry On Up the Jungle. [35] Stodge City is in the grip of the Rumpo Kid and his gang. Mistaken identity again takes a hand as a 'sanitary engineer' named Marshal P. Knutt is mistaken for a law marshal. Being the conscientious sort, Marshal tries to help the town get rid of Rumpo, and a showdown is inevitable. Marshal has two aids - revenge-seeking Annie Oakley and his sanitary expertise. Carry On Escaping (1973), scripted by Talbot Rothwell, a spoof of World War II escape films. The complete script is included in the book The Complete A–Z of Everything Carry On.

The success of the Carry On series occasionally led to affectionate parodies of the series by other contemporary comedians: But recently, HD masters of Nurse, Cruising. Spying& Teacher turned up on Sky Cinema (UK). The sum of all these masters amount to less than half of them, with couple of the series not even available in widescreen, as well as existing on (possibly) 30-40 year old transfers. Peter Rogers had a tendency to destroy his films, not long after filming. So whether these companies have access to “copies” of the original, I’m not sure. Worldwide first on Blu-ray! Carry On favourite Barbara Windsor makes her debut in this outrageous send-up of the James Bond movies. Fearless agent Desmond Simpkins and Charlie Bind, aided and abetted by the comely Agent Honeybutt and Agent Crump, battle against the evil powers of international bad guys STENCH and their three cronies. An intended sub-sequel to the successful Carry On Nurse was renamed and made as Carry On Doctor in 1967. [14] Carry On Nurse was alluded to twice in Carry On Doctor, firstly with the sub-titles (one reading Nurse Carries On Again and Death of a Daffodil), and again in a later scene with Frankie Howerd commenting on a vase of daffodils in his hospital room. A second attempt at Carry On Again Nurse came in 1979, after the series left Rank Films and moved to Hemdale. A completed script had been written by George Layton [15] and Jonathan Lynn in 1977, but the attempt was cancelled due to the financial loss of Carry On Emmannuelle.Each of the four films - Carry On Spying ( 1964), Carry On Cleo ( 1964), Carry On Cowboy ( 1965) and Carry On Screaming! ( 1966) - has been completely restored in high definition, and comes with an original commentary from stars including Bernard Cribbins, Angela Douglas and Fenella Fielding. Rogers and Thomas were responsible for all 31 films, usually on time and to a strict budget, and often employed the same crew — some of whom were also regulars on the James Bond series, such as Peter Lamont, Alan Hume, and Anthony Waye. Between 1958 and 1992, the series employed seven writers, most often Norman Hudis (1958–1962) and Talbot Rothwell (1963–1974). Anglo Amalgamated Film Distributors Ltd produced 12 films (1958–1966), the Rank Organisation made 18 (1966–1978), while United International Pictures produced one (1992). Bright, Morris; Ross, Robert (2000). Mr Carry On – The Life & Work of Peter Rogers. London: BBC Books. ISBN 978-0-563-55183-6. A 50-minute television documentary, What's a Carry On?, was made in 1998 for the 40th anniversary of the first film. It included archive clips, out-takes and interviews with surviving cast members. It was included as an extra on the DVD release of Carry On Emmannuelle. The chances of a box-set of them all coming out is almost nil. Aside from the ones on Blu in the UK, HD masters currently exist for Carry on Camping and Carry On Up the Khyber - both exclusively restored for streaming service Britbox.
