“What’s your name?
”Norah.”- Kenneth Connor’s devastating chat-up technique missed a trick.
Instead of running away, he should have cheesed, “You're named after my favourite virus...😍”
Dr Who and Compo join forces to shout at Charles Hawtrey, Kenneth Williams and Bob Monkhouse and that faceless posh bloke...
The first Carry On film doesn’t yet show the bawdy ludicrocity that made the franchise so popular, instead it utilises many of the elements that most English comedies at the time.
So we have cheek, slapstick, mockery of authority, bumbling ineptitude ... and a collection of recruits as well suited to combat as Bob Monkhouse was born to act.
Kenneth Williams is the man for me here, already using his supercilious expressions and vocal talents to convey his disdain. Shame he wasn’t given more screen time.
Kenneth Connor plays a hypochondriac character that I’m sure gets recycled elsewhere... oh and he’s scared of assertive women too.
