What's on this week or so


Carry On Nurse (1959)

Sergeant was the first, but this is the one that really established the Carry Ons. The regulars are beginning to assemble: Hattie Jacques gets to play matron, and Joan Sims gets to do something rude with a daffodil. It's fun all the way, though without the outrageous camp of the later ones.

Carry On Teacher (1959)

Number three and the most sentimental of the series. Ted Ray is the headmaster of a rough school who is up for promotion to a posh place. The pupils like him so much they decide to play havoc when the school inspectors visit in order to scupper his plans. It's a nice film and we don't see enough of Ted Ray any more since his best work was on TV, but it's not really a Carry On despite the presence of Connor, Hawtrey, Sims, Williams and Jacques.
