Cheese Favourite "Carry on " film actor?

Just watching another repeat of the old films.

So who was your favourite from the old double-entendre laden British comedy films?

Sid James for me every time!!

Re: Favourite "Carry on " film actor?

Toss up between Sid James and Kenneth Williams, shame I can't vote for both! In reality, Sid was the funnier I think, but every time I think of 'infamy, infamy, they've all got it in for me...', I just fall about laughing! Is that the funniest line ever from a film I wonder?

Re: Favourite "Carry on " film actor?

I've gone for Kenneth Williams, though Sid James is perhaps the more obvious choice.

The least recognised for her brilliance as a comedienne is Hattie Jaques as the carry ons did not allow her enough scope to display her true skills.

There's a couple of things I really liked about Barbara Windsor....

I could quote many lines from Spinal Tap, Life of Brian or Young Frankenstein which tickle me much more than any Carry On film. I'll pitch in with: "you can't dust for vomit".

Could easily have been any one of a dozen from each of those films before I can think of a similarly funny Carry On line.

Each to his own, I suppose.

Oh, and my vote goes to Bernard Breslaw.

Yakyakyak!

Sid was good.. but Kenneth was The Man!

Though Anita Harris in her nurse's costume (Carry on Doctor??) is my absolute all-time favourite!

Gone for Sid James, but Bob Monkhouse would be my choice for historic reasons.
