Carry On Screaming

1966 Carry On Screaming, was a marriage of everything British at the right time in the right place with the right storyline and cast. Unusually many of the Carry on team weren’t used in which is arguably the best Carry On film made by far. It has an atmosphere that stays throughout along with a superb soundtrack through out the movie. I believe it was made in the same studious as the Hammer House production team which probably explains why it was so well put together with such apt costumes and sets.

Fenella Fielding is perfectly cast seductress. The film also has some good makeup work, and the title song, stays in your head.
The cast for once didnt include Sid James nor Barabara Windsor nor Hattie Jacques or Kenneth Connor.
