What A Carry On!

It’s a Mancunian Film Corporation production! Yes, the sainted John E Blakeley takes the helm as Jimmy Jewel and Ben Warris make their first of two appearances at the Jollywood studio, joining the army in yet another putative Sergeant scenario. Originally intended to be Somewhere on Parade,another in the long-running series of Frank Randle/Dan Young escapades, though Randle at the time wanted more control and Blakeley, thinking his star getting a bit peas-above-sticks, gave him School for Randle instead (hooray!) and replaced him with the more compliant Jewel. Still, Josef Locke and Kitty Blewett are present. And remember: ‘This film has been produced with the sole intention of providing burlesque comedy entertainment, and is not meant in any way to be derogatory of any of the services’.
