Editorial Reviews

CARRY ON DOCTOR: Doctor Tinkle (Kenneth Williams) presides over the wards at Borough County Hospital, where patients, doctors and nurses alike all harbor hidden passions for each other. His stern demeanor is disrupted by the arrival of Nurse Sandra May (Barbara Windsor), a young woman from his past who raises the blood pressure of the entire male hospital population. His underhand plots with the matron (Hattie Jacques) to dismiss one of the more popular doctors inspire, of all things, a patients revolt! The gags and laughter fly in this raucous comedy. RT: 94 min, Color, 1.75:1/Letterboxed, PG, 1968 CARRY ON UP THE KHYBER: Perhaps the finest moment from the Carry On team... India, 1895 and the British colonials rule. The natives are ready to revolt, prevented from acting only by fear of Britain s famous Devils in Skirts , the Scottish regiment protecting the Khyber Pass. When Private Widdle endangers their image, the Khasi of Kalibar (Kenneth Williams) seizes the occasion to ignite a revolt. Somehow, the Skirts honor must be re-established, but how?

I remember when I saw the first in the "Carry on" series of ribald British comedies that was exported to the US - "Carry On Nurse" (1958!)- and still remember the final daffodil scene. (Those who are familiar with the film will know what I mean..). About 10 years ago Anchor Bay released a box set of some of the "Carry On" films and I enjoyed those. But there 29 CO films made between 1958 and 1978 and, little by little, they are seeing light on home video, especially DVD. A few have been released in versions only usable in the UK.

Now comes the first two - of what I assume will be an ongoing series - of "Double Features" from VCI. They recently acquired the catalog of The Rank Organisation and these are part of that licensing agreement.

This Double-Feature includes the 15th in the series - "Carry On Doctor", which pretty much picks up from where "Carry on Nurse" left off. And medical comedies are always ripe for double-entendres and saucy jokes, the lifeblood of the CO films. No sex or nudity but lots of humor that the British seemed to get away with easier than US filmmakers. Think Benny Hill! I won't go into the plots or cast of these films - the other on this DVD is "Carry on Up The Khyber" - whose main running joke is that the soldiers don't wear under shorts under their "uniforms" (that look like kilts.- because there are MANY reviews of the VHS releases of these films on Amazon. But you'll note that these go back almost 10 years.

What I will say is that the prints provided by VCI are in GORGEOUS color and apparently were remastered. Also, "Doctor" includes a young Jim Dale ("Barnum" among other stage hits) in his early film days.

It has been years since I had last seen any of the 'Carry On' movies, and I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed these. I will order some more soon.

Carry On films are an acquired taste but if you have it, you will love these two examples of one of the longest running series in movie history.
