Episode 72 - Carry On Flickering


Thanks to listener Jason, we were turned on to an amazing string of British movies known as the "Carry On Films". This series of cheeky comedies were unknown to us and we are very happy to have found them. We picked two of the 31 theatrically released films as our introduction, starting with 1966's Carry On Screaming! and then following that up with 1969's Carry On Camping. All of the films in the franchise were directed by Gerald Thomas, and each are similar in certain ways, but different enough that they stand on their own.  This was a wonderful  surprise for us to find this treasure trove of wonderful British humor, so we send big thanks out to Jason for the recommendation and we implore the rest of you to do as he did and send us your own recommendations. Let us know what you think of the Carry On films and of the show by writing to flickersfrom@yahoo.com or flickersfrom@gmail.com or leave us a message on our Facebook page.
